After renewing Alessandro del Piero's contract, Juventus management are now planning talks with Raffaele Palladino over a new deal.

Tuttosport says Juve boss Claudio Ranieri has told his board he's anxious to see the Italy U21 international tied to a new, long-term contract as he establishes himself in the coach's plans this season.

Palladino is contracted to Juve until 2010, but can buy out his deal next summer and the attacking midfielder's agent has already been contacted by British clubs about next season.
