Juventus president Giovanni Cobolli Gigli has confirmed they're in talks about bringing Real Madrid defender Fabio Cannavaro back to the club.

"Now the talks will begin with [general manager Jean-Claude] Blanc, [director of sport Alessio] Secco and [Coach Claudio] Ranieri," explained the President.

"There are some details that still need to be filed down. It's pleasing to hear that Ranieri gave a positive view on Cannavaro."

Juve coach Claudio Ranieri added: "We would be able to rebuild the partnership with Giorgio Chiellini and we can sign him for free. When I was consulted about this I gave the go-ahead."
