Conte Brushes Off Tevez Talk

Juventus coach Antonio Conte said that it would be disrespectful to discuss transfer speculation so soon after his side claimed the Serie A title.

The Old Lady bagged a second successive crown this season, even though they finished with a 3-2 loss to Sampdoria in their final game.

Asked after their match as to whether he would be interested in luring Manchester City striker Carlos Tevez to the club, he said that it was too soon for those rumours.

"I think you should be giving credit to my guys for what they did on the pitch this year. Talking about the market right now does not seem respectful to them," he told reporters.

Club director Guiseppe Marotta had earlier hinted that a move for Tevez could be on the cards though.

"Tevez or Higuain? It could be easier to buy Tevez, only for the reason that Carlitos has only one year left of his contract," he told Sky Sports 24.

"We haven't talked with City, but sometimes we talk with agents of players. For the next season we want to reinforce our offensive line."
