Juventus coach Conte unaware of any move for Drogba

Antonio Conte - Juventus
Juventus coach Antonio Conte has revealed he is unaware of any move to sign Didier Drogba.

The Old Lady are reported to be in the hunt for a new centre forward, but the 43-year-old says he hasnt discussed the possibility of the Ivory Coast international joining from Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua.

I dont know why Drogbas name is being mentioned [with a move to Juventus], Conte told Tuttosport. I havent spoken to anyone about him and neither have I been asked.

The Bianconeri trainer went on to admit that while he is keen to see a major new signing in Turin, he would like the club to consider a more long-term option.

We could do with a world class player who has won the Champions League, but we know what we need and how the club should proceed, he continued.

We dont have 50m to spend, but if we plan ahead then we could buy some champions for 35m-40m.

The coach, who last season led the club to its fir st Scudetto since the Calciopoli scandal, also revealed his ambitions both to manage abroad and to one day step into international football.

Juventus is a dream job for me, he said. Afterwards, Ill work abroad then the next step would be the [Italian national side].
