thumbnail Hello,

Amauri's Juventus to Real Madrid link is "just a rumour" for agent Giampiero Pocetta...

Juventus striker Amauri has little prospect of joining Real Madrid in January as his agent slams the door on reports.

Amauri, 30, has seen his career encroach a downturn this season as injuries and just six appearances in Serie A take their toll.

Italian reports claimed Juventus hoped to offload Amauri and create space for another striker to arrive in January. Real Madrid were linked with him, but his agent Giampiero Pocetta is highly sceptical, describing any move as fraught with doubt.

"Real Madrid? It's nice that Jose Mourinho likes the player, but there is nothing. It is just a rumour," Pocetta told

"Amauri wants to remain at Juventus and he is trying to work hard to be ready for the coach [Luigi Del Neri], who has plenty of faith in him.

"There is plenty of rumour and speculation."
