Italian giants Juventus have denied Kwadwo Asamoah’s remarks about him “giving his word” to Galatasaray over a transfer.
Asamoah was thought to have given an interview to the Turkish Press, where he suggested he was still “looking forward” to joining Gala, even after his proposed move fell through.
The Ghana international was quoted as telling the Turkish Press that: “We agreed on everything over the summer”
“After drawn-out negotiations, I made the best decision for myself. I gave my word to Galatasaray and I won’t go back on it.
“I picked them for the role they gave me in their team and what they offered me.
“Now I’m thinking about Juve, but Galatasaray are important to me and I’m following all their games with great interest.
“Their football is promising and I look forward to becoming a part of this team.”
However, Calciomercato and Goal claim to have been told by Juve’s Press office that the Ghanaian never spoke to the Turkish media.
Nonetheless, he has played just five times for the Bianconeri this season and will be out of contract next summer.
