Marotta hints at further Juventus signings

The 56-year-old is thrilled with the club's summer purchases to date but claims they will continue to monitor the transfer market for any other "decent opportunities"
Juventus director general Giuseppe Marotta has hinted that the club's summer spending may not be at an end.

The Bianconeri have already invested heavily in the off-season, with Fernando Llorente, Carlos Tevez and Angelo Ogbonna for a combined fee of approximately €25 million, but Marotta maintains the Serie A champions will continue to scour the market for any further "decent opportunities."

“The recent arrivals have fitted in well. We’ve moved early to assemble a very competitive squad,” he told reporters.

“Considering the foundations are already strong, comprised of players who have lifted us to two consecutive league titles, we can already consider ourselves satisfied, even though we’ll continue to monitor the transfer market should any decent opportunities arise.

“The competition has certainly increased following the arrival of such important players. But this can only positively impact a squad that’s about to embark on a long season with plenty of fixtures.”

Marotta is hopeful the club's investment this summer will allow them to push for European glory in addition to domestic dominance, after they reached the quarter-finals of last season's Champions League before being knocked out by Bayern Munich.

“We’ll aim to reclaim our title in Italy and go even further in Europe. However, given the recent acquisitions made by the main foreign teams, we know it won’t be a straightforward task," he added.
