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."
