Juventus GM Beppe Marotta insists they're not in for Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso.

Xabi has been linked with Juve as a replacement for Andrea Pirlo.

But Marotta says: "It's not time to talk about it now, we have Andrea Pirlo in that role, who is happy with us. There are no fears he will go elsewhere.

"We never talked with Xabi Alonso nor with his representatives."
