Juventus director Beppe Marotta has distanced his club from a possible swoop for unsettled Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez.

Tevez is meeting City officials on Wednesday to discuss his alleged behaviour in refusing to come on as substitute during City's recent 2-0 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

“It’s normal to talk about players when it comes to Juventus, but we haven’t started negotiations for Tevez,” said Marotta.

“We have a squad that presently meets our needs, then with each passing Sunday we’ll evaluate things.

“We didn’t discover Tevez, it is clear that he is a great player and we are a great club so the link is normal, but to go from that to say that we are in talks for him [is misleading].”
