Juventus coach Pirlo admits Suarez move now OFF

Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo admits a move for Barcelona striker Luis Suarez is off.

Pirlo says red-tape will thwart the deal.

He said, "It takes a long time to obtain an Italian passport, so it's unlikely Suarez can be Juve's centre-forward."

On their pursuit of Roma striker Edin Dzeko, the coach was coy.

“We are all waiting for a centre-forward, but there's a long way to go in the transfer market and every team is dealing with similar problems. We are in no rush," assured Pirlo.
