Juventus claimed their 3rd consecutive league title without facing much opposition as they only suffered 2 losses in the 38 matches that was played throughout the entire campaign with As.Roma coming in 2nd place but falling behind by 17 points but Antonio Conte is showing no signs of slowing down as the Italian coach has a number of players that he wants to sign during this summer transfer target.
Stefano Sturaro is a young promising player and one of the latest performers that the Italian club has signed with a transfer fee of €5.5 million that Juventus will have to pay in the interval of 3 years but the 21 year old Italian midfielder is going to spend the next season out on a loan deal with Genoa before officially arriving to Juventus.
“Juventus announce that the agreement with Genoa for the definitive acquisition of the registration rights of the player Stefano Sturaro has been finalized,” The official website of the Italian club revealed through a statement.
Juan Iturbe is another top target of Juventus but it will be a fairly difficult challenge for Antonio Conte to sign him considering that Iturbe is a Argentinean attacker who is also in the radar of Ac.Milan .
The new coach of Ac.Milan, Filippo Inzaghi is eager on adding talented and preferably younger players into the squad and especially considering that Ricardo Kaka has left the club as he went on to join Orlando City.
Ricardo Kaka was one of the main attacking powerhouses of Ac.Milan as well as being one of the most creative players in the entire squad and Inzaghi has to find players who can replace the Brazilian midfielder.
Reports are suggesting that Fabio Quaglirella could be used as bait in order to lure Juan Iturbe from his current club, Hellas Verona and into the Juventus Arena.
Getting the chance to represent your country at the biggest football event is something that player’s dream of doing. Carlos Tevez made a sensational debut season with Juventus as he was one of the most influential players of the Italian squad as he made 31 league appearances and scored on 19 occasions but it wasn’t enough for him to be chosen by Alejandro Sabella as he will be one of the stars that are not going to be performing in the 2014 World Cup.
Carlos Tevez responded to Sabella’s decision of not being elected into the Argentinean squad as he stated that he does not know what is going around with the team of Sabella and has no interest of seeing how they perform in the worldwide event as he is taking time off with his family.
“I’m not watching anything, I don’t know how the Argentina squad is doing, and I’ve not heard from the group, I don’t know anything about anything. I’m with my family; I’m playing golf, getting some sun. I’m isolated because I’m a footballer and it hurts. I’m not watching what’s happening, or what’s going on around the team, nor anything to do with the World Cup.” Tevez stated during a press conference at the Boca Juniors stadium which is the place where he began his football career.
The 30 year old attacker has enjoyed playing in the different leagues and clubs around the world including: Boca Juniors, Manchester United, Manchester City and Juventus but the Argentinean attacker revealed that he would like to play the last few years or days of his career playing at his childhood club Boca Juniors.
“I don’t know if it’s far away but in any case, I still have a bit of gas left. When I see the chance to come back to the club that I love, I’ll do it. I miss day by day coming to training with joy, knowing that I’m in my country, at home, I miss everything about Boca.” Tevez stated.
Juventus striker Carlos Tevez has claimed that Argentina manager Alejandro Sabella should consider getting his own satellite television in order to watch Juventus matches. The jibe is placed on the Argentina manager after he has not selected the forward for the last three years. Tevez was an integral part of the national team prior to the arrival of Sabella. However, the new Argentine manager saw Tevez not perform well and also created a lot of problems due to the presence of Lionel Messi.
It is heavily rumoured that Tevez does not get along with Messi, who is widely perceived to be the best player in the world, but the 31-year-old has always rejected those arguments. This year, he has been in excellent form for the Italian Serie A club. He has helped them win a third consecutive league title by scoring an incredible 12 goals this season. Sabella, on the other hand, has a wealth of options to choose from when it comes to his strikers. The likes of Gonzalo Higuain, Sergio Aguero, Lionel Messi, and Ezequiel Lavezzi have all been performing well this campaign.
Out of the sheer frustration that he has not been picked for the national team for several years, Tevez has said that Sabella should consider getting his own satellite television.
“I think the coach of Argentina’s national team must not have satellite television hooked up to watch Juventus. I do not think I have any hope of going to the World Cup now. I am a direct striker, maybe that plays against me and that means Sabella does not have a good impression of me,” said the striker after his team recorded a 3-1 win over Sassuolo during the weekend. Argentina will be facing the likes of Iran and Bosnia in the World Cup group stages.
Around 1 month ago, Argentina played a friendly match against Romania as they are getting ready for the upcoming 2014 World Cup. The head coach of Argentina, Alejandro Sabella decided to bring into the pitch players such as: Lavezzi, Palacio, Higuain and others but Tevez was not even on the sidelines of the team.
Carlos Tevez is not only one of the top goal-scorers of Juventus but in Serie A as well. He has been racking up goals in just about every single match he plays in, even when he is unable on scoring goal, Tevez still plays a pivotal role for Antonio Conte and Juventus.
Even with all of his accomplishments and performances, it seems like Tevez cannot find a spot in Alejandro Sabella’s starting lineup for Argentina. The last time he was able to represent his country was back in 2011 and ever since the appointment of Sabella as the new coach of the team, Tevez has never been picked.
There are a number of rumors that exist as to why Tevez is not being taken into consideration with some of them stating that Lionel Messi does not have a healthy relationship with the Juventus player while others claim that Tevez has been having problems with the Argentine Football Association president Julio Grondona.
Whether or not any of those rumors are true or not, fans of Carlos Tevez will be marching on April 11 at the Obelisk of Buenos Aires as a way to protest against the absence of Tevez from participating in international scene. It is expected that around 1,500 people will be attending and joining the march.
Carlos Tevez is one of the top goal-scorers for Juventus and ever since he joined the Italian club, he has been enjoying a fairly successful time since making his move to the Serie A. Ac.Milan even tried to sign him but it was Juventus, the club that acted faster and managed to sign him, which shows just how valued Tevez is.
Even with all the recent impressive performances that Tevez has displayed with Juventus not only in the past few weeks but in the entire season, it will not be enough for him to get a chance to represent Argentina for the upcoming World Cup.
There are a few reasons on why exactly Tevez is still not being taken into consideration for his national country and one of those is because of the disappointing performances Tevez made with Argentina during the 2011 Copa America as he missed a crucial penalty kick during the shootout at the quarterfinals that ultimately led to Argentina losing to Uruguay.
But there is another bigger reason on why Tevez is highly unlikely to play with Argentina on the 2014 World Cup and its due to the fact that his relationship with Lionel Messi is not a good one and considering that Messi takes priority of just about everyone else in the Argentinean squad, Alejandro Sabella simply prefers to avoid any unnecessary squad problems by keeping Tevez away from the team.
‘’ It’s a decision of Sabella, I don’t know if it’s a political reason or what it is but it solely depends on him’’.Tevez replied when he was asked if he would appear for the 2014 World Cup.
Gonzalo Higuain, Rodrigo Palacio and Ezequiel Lavezzi all were featured for Argentina’s friendly match against Romania but neither of them have managed to score or make the same kind of impact that Tevez has made since arriving to Juventus but he still is unable on securing a place with Argentina.
