Juventus are happy with their squad and unlikely to sign anyone in January even Ivan Rakitic from Barcelona.

Rakitic who has fallen out of favor this season with Ernesto Valverde has stated his unhappiness at the current situation.

It is highly likely he will leave Barcelona in the Winter transfer window., but his destination is a little unclear.

What is clear though is it will not be to Juventus.

Apparently it is highly unlikely anyone will be joining the Bianconeri this January.

In an interview with ESPN, Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici declared them out of the race for Rakitic and anyone else you care to mention.

He said:

“We have a great team, and we are not looking to reinforce at the moment.”

“Rakitic is a great player, but we are not interested.”

“We are fully covered in all positions.”

He has been linked with a host of clubs, including PSG and Sevilla, his form prior to this season would make him a welcome addition to most teams.
