Juventus midfielder Melo admits he almost accepted Brazil return

Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo has ruled out returning to Brazil.

Melo announced he would be staying in Europe next season.

He said: "I had got to the point of choosing the area I'd live in and I know they'd have treated me with a great deal of affection.

"However, I was very annoyed that people I didn't even know started commenting on a supposed move to Palmeiras. Flamengo were never interested in me, while Santos and Gremio only ever enquired."
