Sampdoria chief Marotta admits Cassano almost joined Juventus

Sampdoria chief Beppe Marotta has revealed Antonio Cassano came close to joining Juventus.

Speaking ahead of last night's defeat to Juve, Marotta revealed: "How close was he to Juve? Pretty close.

"Juve, like other clubs, set their sights on him, but genuine negotiations round a table never materialised.

"As for the chances of him making that move next season, those are very slim. Cassano has proved great love for Samp and we are in a position to keep him. We've put him at the centre of our project."
