Krasic: Linked with Juve
Negotiations have reportedly broken down between Juventus and CSKA Moscow for midfielder Milos Krasic.
The Serbia international has been a long-term target of the Old Lady, having spent six years in Russia with CSKA.
Krasic is currently competing in the World Cup for Serbia as his side look to progress past the group stage.
But as he competes in the showpiece spectacle, his club future is in limbo as negotiations are rumoured to have broken down.
CSKA have reportedly increased the asking price for the 25-year-old attacker and Juventus are not willing to up their bid.
Meanwhile, new club president Andrea Agnelli has released a statement declaring that Juve are going through a transitional period.
"The management, which I consider as being the other team, is going through a time of change," he said.
"We are all, from the first to the last, each in his role and with his competencies, working to guarantee economic stability and sporting competitiveness.
"Personally, I am trying to dedicate myself without saving any energy, on all fronts."
On new manager Luigi Del Neri, Agnelli added: "He has the delicate task of bringing back culture and sporting discipline to the changing rooms.
"The distance from the rivals, which has been created in recent years, requires a complex path, but we are conscious that with professionalism and passion we will be able to build a team capable of winning against any opponent."
