By Football Italian staff Roberto Mancini says he will never consider selling a player.
The former Chelsea coach admitted that Juve were not able to find a deal with the Italian champions that would allow him to sign the Italian international, who is out of contract in the summer.
“We will not be happy, I can say that,” Mancina said.
“We will always have the feeling that we won’t be happy.
But if it is not for that reason we have to say, ‘It’s OK, we can deal with it.'”
Juventus had made a bid of around €30 million for the 28-year-old, who scored 30 goals in all competitions last season.
The Bianconeri had hoped to secure his services on a free transfer next summer, but the offer has fallen through due to financial constraints.
The Italian giants are now prepared to wait until after the World Cup to get a deal done, although Mancinas will not say when he expects a move to be completed.
“I hope we will never say goodbye to the Bianconeria, but we have not received any offers.
We will never have a deal in place for the future, and we won.
It’s a matter of time,” Mascolo said.
