Juventus T.V.: Permanent Departure List
Hello, and welcome to Juventus T.V. with Cristina Chiabotto! I am your host for today's exclusive
departure list, which includes from key-players to players who have been loaned for the past two years.
The former Miss Italia 2004 has been Juventus's T.V. official host since Nedved's appointment.
The first official player to move for pastures new was Marco Motta
, after he had completed two loans in Catania
and recently relegated Bologna
. With the quality that Juventus
have this year, Marco Motta wouldn't get ahead of players such as Stephan Lichsteiner, Mauricio Isla
and Simone Padoin
, who all play in his preferred role. Slapping a £2.5 million price tag
and other Italian
teams put in the valuation Juventus wanted. However, Juventus
wanted all the money upfront, thus making Catania
the only clubs whose bids were accepted. After heated negotiations, Marco Motta
decided to go for Atalanta
, his boyhood club.

Next up is Switzerland
international, Reto Ziegler
, who failed to make an official appearance as a Juventus
player. The player, failing to impress both Conte
was loaned to Turkey
, where he spent the last two seasons, in which the Turkish
club paid £1 million to acquire his services for 2 years. But, as Juventus
added Pablo Armero
and acquired the full rights of Kwadwo Asamoah
earlier in the summer, Reto Ziegler
fell off the pecking order, and was offered to different clubs in Europe. However he would go off to Celta
, as they met the £3.7 million fee
wanted and lured the player to the warm beaches of Spain
Reto Ziegler when he first arrived in after Conte's appointment.
One of the favorites of Juve's
quadruple season, the Montegrin
forward was put available in the transfer market, after the Juventus
board asked Nedved
to raise funds from the player. It all seemed logical, as the former Lecce
player was bought from Roma
in a £12.75 million fee
, and in a few months, the Montegrin
international would turn 30. After some negotiations with Liverpool, Schalke 04
and Real Madrid
, the player chose the latter, after they offered him to play in the Champions League and a great financial offer. The forward was sold for a fee of £22.5 million fee
, which will see Juventus
make a juicy profit. Whether Juventus
will miss the player, or completely forget the player will be seen in the next months.

, who joined Juventus
4 years ago for a massive £19.75 million fee
, has officially left Juventus
and heads to his new club in London
, Tottenham Hotspur
. The London
based club were looking for a tough box-to-box midfielder after the club parted ways with injury-prone Sandro
, who joined Manchester United last summer. After signing Asier Illaramendi
from Real Sociedad
, Tottenham wanted a player with experience, both internationally and domestically. Felipe Melo
, offered in a cut-price deal of £5.75 million fee
to clubs, (since his contract was to expire at the end of the season) was offered terms by Ligue 1
champions and as many labelled 'Juventus Scrap Yard'
(Over 4 former players play there now) offered the Brazilian player a contract. However, Andre Villas-Boas
convinced the Brazilian
player with a regular spot in the team.
