Giuseppe Marotta confirms that Juventus will not be bidding for Monaco forward Radamel Falcao this summer.

Juventus director general Giuseppe Marotta has insisted that there is no chance of the club making a bid for Radamel Falcao in the near future.

The Monaco forward has been repeatedly linked with a move away from Ligue 1 this summer, but it now appears that the Italian champions are not in the running for the Colombian's signature.

"We're lacking a forward, a second striker in a compartment that already gives us many certainties, but it will not be a [player with] a major profile," Marotta told Sky Sport Italia.

"We will not make big investments, but [one player] could arrive in the final hours of the window."

Reports on Wednesday suggested that Liverpool were eager to sign Falcao on loan for the season.
