Fabrizio Miccoli has insisted that he would be happy to return to Juventus.

The striker was sent out on loan to Benfica last term but his prospects for this season remain unclear.

Benfica are believed to be eager to keep him, while Juve are contemplating whether or not to recall him to the Stadio Delle Alpi.

The situation is further complicated by Juve's involvement in the match-fixing scandal sweeping through Italy, with all their transfer dealings currently deadlocked.

Miccoli has given the Serie A champions a timely boost though, by claiming that he intends to honour his contract.

"I have a deal with Juve until 2008," he said. "So I'll have to come back to play in Italy.

"Now it is only necessary to talk with the new officials to decide my future.

"We will see whether the coach will change or whether (Fabio) Capello will stay.

"My agent and I will meet with the club's officials in the next few days.

"If there is the possibility to stay I'll do so, otherwise I'll go elsewhere as I have done the last two years."
