No Juventus move for ex-Chelsea ace Drogba

Juventus boss Antonio Conte has dismissed claims that Didier Drogba is set to join them on loan.

The former Chelsea star has been heavily linked with a move to Italy from Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua but Conte has dampened that idea by saying there is no deal in place for his club to sign any big-name players in January.

"Transfer talk seems disrespectful to the players in my team, especially at the current moment," said Conte.

"It's a critical time as far as the economy is concerned and it's the same for several other teams.

"We won't be signing any top players because we're not in a position to. Neither us, nor other top teams in the Italian league."
