Bologna Not Resigned to Losing Thiago Motta to Juventus

Bologna hold out hope that qualifying for the Champions League, which is increasingly likely after each matchday, will give them a chance to retain Thiago Motta despite the intense courtship by Juventus, replicating Xabi Alonso’s choice, Corriere dello Sport informed.

The coach, who has an expiring deal, has routinely dismissed the questions about his future. The Felsinei president Joey Saputo would quickly abide by his requests if he wanted to renew his contract. There’ll be a direct conversation between the two. The patron will promise to keep bolstering the squad. The boss wouldn’t mind having more say in the transfer market.

If Motta goes to Juventus, Bologna will focus on three options to replace him: Vincenzo Italiano, Maurizio Sarri, and Eusebio Di Francesco. According to Alfredo Pedullà, the Rossoblù don’t have much of a chance of keeping the gaffer.

The Bianconeri have decided to appoint him to open a new cycle. They are just waiting for the right moment to make it official. Both teams are still fighting for their objectives. Chelsea gathered intel in the last few days but didn’t go past that.
