Giovanni Cobolli Gigli Reveals Juventus Transfer Strategies

Gigli is playing the no name game as he stays quiet on the club's transfer targets, but is all talk over plans to strengthen..
Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli has revealed the club's transfer plans for the summer, but dodged questions on who the team has in mind.

The chief has spoken of a far-reaching project, claiming his club have the financial means to enjoy a decent business campaign during the transfer window. However, despite Antonio Cassano being constantly linked with the club, Gigli was reluctant to share names.

"I don't intend to name, but [Jean-Claude] Blanc has always stated our objective is to find a replacement for [Pavel] Nedved," Gigli told Sky Sport Italia.

"Nothing is impossible, but I cannot reveal any names. Juventus will balance the books this year thanks to the Champions League and this is important both from the economic and sports point of view.

"It's clear that there will be some action, but no real major departures. All clubs have to find the right balance between income and expenditure."

With the transfer window still some distance away, Gigli preferred to focus on matters closer to home and, in particular, the Scudetto race.

Juventus still believe in overhauling Inter, however that belief is being played down. Gigli knows his side face upheaval, but is determined to show that plans for glory remain unaltered.

"Juve have a 30 percent chance of winning the Scudetto. We still have to face-off with Inter. The probability is reduced, but we still believe," concluded the chief.
