At the ceremony of the first Premio Colantuoni (a prize named after Sampdoria's ex-president Mario Colantuoni, who took charge of the club from 1968 to 1993) Juventus football director Giuseppe Marotta gave an interview with interesting quotes regarding Chelsea's Mohamed Salah and Juan Cuadrado.

Marotta refuted any kind of interest of Juventus on Salah, indicating that he might join a Milan club instead.

Salah? On him we never turned on. [He] will go [to] a team with the striped shirt and a stadium in Milan. The same goes for Jovetic.

Said Milanese club is supposedly Internazionale, which have been linked to loan deals for both Salah and Manchester City's Stevan Jovetic in the past few days. The Juventus director also spoke directly about the club's interest in Cuadrado:

We are open to all possibilities, if Chelsea opened the loan we would [be] happy.

These have been two of the most amusing transfer sagas I've ever followed, with Salah's relationship with Fiorentina ruining itself and Cuadrado torn between coming back to Chelsea so he can help Falcao -- and maybe himself -- adapt to the Premier League or going back to Italy to help Juventus maintain their domestic dominance amidst the two Milan clubs wreaking havoc in some sort of city-wide transfer frenzy.

Silly season is the best.
