Juventus has denied reports that Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah is set to join Galatasaray next summer.
Reports surfaced over the weekend in which Kwadwo Asamoah was quoted to have said he was set to move to Turkey next summer.
“We agreed on everything over the summer,” the 28-year old was reported to have told Turkish portal Fotomac.
“After drawn-out negotiations, I made the best decision for myself. I gave my word to Galatasaray [that I’ll join them from here] and I won’t go back on it.
But according to Italian portal Calciomercato, Juventus have denied the midfielder granted any such interview.
“Calciomercato.com contacted Juventus, but through their press office they denied any such claims.
“They insist that Asamoah never sent this message and that no one has made any official statement such as the one released by the Turkish media,” the website reported.
Asamoah has one year left in his contract with the Bianconerri and could still join Galatasaray at the end of the season after a move fell through last summer. He has made five league starts so far this season.
