Van der Vaart excited by Juventus interest

Hamburg midfielder Rafael van der Vaart is excited by interest from Juventus.

A £11 million deal is being mooted and the Dutchman said: "I have not yet received an official bid, but I did hear that Juve are interested in me. I can really see myself at Juventus."

He went on: "I still have another two and a half years on my contract and it is quite a long period. It was very difficult for me to turn down the offer, as it was an excellent proposal and the club did everything it could to keep me here."
