Motta’s future is with PSG, claims agent
The 31-year-old’s agent denies there is interest from Juventus, insisting his client is content on playing out the remainder of his contract at the Parc des Princes
Thiago Motta has had no contact from Juventus and will remain with Paris Saint-Germain for the forseeable future, according to his agent Alessandro Canovi.
The Italy international has featured in all but one of the club’s games this season, adding two goals and two assists in two Champions League games.
A recent report in the Italian newspaper Tuttosport, claimed Juve were keen on signing Motta, but the midfielder’s agent insists his future is in Paris.
“The information put out by Tuttosport regarding Juventus’ interest in Thiago Motta is false,” he told Le 10 Sport. “Neither Juventus, nor any other club have contacted me.
“I get along very well with Fabio Paratici, the sporting director of Juventus, and he never called me to ask about Thiago.
“Motta feels great at PSG and believes that the club is one of the new major European forces. That’s why he decided to leave Inter for PSG.
“Thiago is convinced he made the right choice and he wants to stay in Paris for a long time.
“This is his first priority and the club is high on him as well.”
While Canovi insists his client is not for sale, he believes Motta would garner plenty of interest if he were on the market.
“If I were to look for teams for him, I would find many,” he continued.
“He is only 31 and still has another four or five good years ahead of him.
“I truly believe that if he were on the market there would be plenty of clubs interested in him, because he is a complete player.”
Motta’s contract with les Parisiens expires in June 2015.
