Juventus GM Beppe Marotta says Manchester United did bad business over their deal for Robin van Persie.

Marotta also insisted that the Old Lady were happy with their summer signings, even if none of their buys could boast the class or experience of Van Persie.

"I have regrets about Van Persie, but it would have been a bad choice for the club if we had paid €30million for a player who would have seen his contract expire next year," Marotta told Tuttosport.

"We are happy with the business we were able to carry out."
