JUVENTUS striker David Trezeguet has denied he has given the club an ultimatum on his new deal that stated he would leave if he did not get the new contract he wanted.
Trezeguet, who has recently been linked with moves to Arsenal and Barcelona, was reportedly unhappy that Juve had not opened talks regarding a new deal.
However, the French international hit-man understands that the Stadio Delle Alpi side need to conclude negotiations with star players Alessandro Del Piero and Edgar Davids, before speaking with him.
"I have not given an ultimatum to Juventus," claims Trezeguet to 'La Domenica Sportiva'.
"I only said that sooner or later, tomorrow or in 2005, my turn would arrive to talk about my contract.
"I've said that the club, quite rightly are dealing with the contracts of Alessandro Del Piero and Edgar Davids which expire in 2004. My time will come."
Although recent reports insinuated the 25-year-old had signed a deal with Barca, or any other side, the star has denied he has committed himself to anything.
"I've read many stories that I have signed a contract with Barcelona and one with Arsenal, but I've not signed anything," concluded Trezeguet.
