Melo excited about Juventus prospects

Felipe Melo is excited about Juventus' prospects.

The new midfield signing said: "For now I must focus on my club, as the higher I take Juventus, the more likely it is I'll be called by the Selecao.

"I'm a long way off Dunga and Emerson now, but I have just arrived in a top club and when I have won some silverware then I can mention them in the same breath.

"We have to be like a big family at Juve and I am here to be a part of it. I have played against Diego many times and it will be fun to be his teammate for once," he said of his fellow Brazilian.

The Scudetto is the primary target, especially if Inter sell Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Barcelona in exchange for Samuel Eto'o.

"Inter are very strong, with or without Ibrahimovic, even if I consider him to be stronger than Eto'o. We must focus only on ourselves and prove it through our work.

"I came to Juve because here I can win everything there is to win."
