Felipe Melo confirms he is leaving Juventus

Felipe Melo has confirmed he's leaving Juventus.

There are reports this move could be to any number of clubs, as Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Galatasaray have all been linked by various sources.

"I've received an offer from Europe that will vastly improve my salary," he told Brazilian media.

"We're finalising the details and over the next few days everything out to be completed.

"I was not cut from the Juventus squad. Quite simply, in agreement with the directors, we decided it was inconvenient that I should only play in Serie A, considering my salary and the contract that runs to 2014."
