Felipe Melo Will Be Juventus' Final Transfer - Jean Claude Blanc

The Bianconeri director has confirmed that the Brazilian will be the last piece of this summer's transfer puzzle...
Juventus general manager Jean Claude Blanc, in reference to the midfielder Felipe Melo's transfer from Fiorentina, has declared that this will be the final incoming transfer the club will make this summer.

However, Blanc did not mention Melo by name, as the deal has not yet been completed and has hit some difficulties which the Bianconeri hope to solve as soon as possible.

"If another player arrives, the Juventus transfer market will be considered closed," explained the French director to tuttomercatoweb.com.

Blanc wanted to reassure the Old Lady's fans that the club is offering coach Ciro Ferrara a very competitive squad who can fight on the same level as all the big clubs in Italy and Europe.

Also, sporting director Alessio Secco confirmed that, for the time being, the negotiations with Melo are still open, but the deal should be sealed soon.
