Juventus chief Paratici baffled by Guardiola rumours

Juventus sports chief Fabio Paratici insists they've never made an attempt for Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola.

Guardiola has been linked with Juve since the departure of Max Allegri.

But Paratici says: “I think we live in a strange world. We did not have any contact, we never even thought about it, because [Guardiola] is under contract.

“It all seems very strange to me.

“We have clear ideas, we have already said it, we are doing our evaluations, and there are still many competitions in progress.

“Until all the competitions end, it seems to me right, out of respect for everyone to remain in this situation."
