Davids eyes Juve extension Tuesday 19 August, 2003

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Edgar Davids wants to extend his current contract with Italian champions Juventus, according to his agent.

The Dutchman only has a year left on his present deal in Turin but he wants to remain despite interest from Chelsea.

"It is true that the Premiership side made him an offer but he turned them down because he wants to continue at Juventus," Robert Geerlings told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"There is a very real possibility that Edgar will renew his contract with the Bianconeri because that is his desire."

Speculation suggests that the former Ajax man will probably leave the club as talks over a new contract have stalled.

But Geerlings maintains those claims are untrue as contract negotiations have not even begun.

"Davids hasn’t received an offer from Juve as of yet," he continued. "I haven’t been in Turin since April and have not heard from the club since then. I am simply waiting for the call."

However, there is a distinct possibility that the Delle Alpi outfit will release the 30-year-old after the arrival of Stephan Appiah.

The Ghanaian youngster has quickly settled in Turin and has even replaced Davids in the first team so far this pre-season.

but now how to fit all Appiah, Tacchinardi and Davids in one system?
Davids and Tacchi does not play the same position! They were both in the starting 11 through the whole season.

But Davids will have to battle with Appiah, this will be interesting :extatic:

Davids is the superior player, and thus he should start, but I think that Appiah is more like Tacch than he is like Davids, but that Appiah will displace one of them this season. Personally, I'd rather it were Tacch, but either way it seems inevitable...

1 mil and 1 roumours going out there but nothing for for sure yet.....sigh.....well, i hope this 1 is true and that David's does remain with us :)

As for the Appiah/Davids/Tacchi thing. I think that Tacchi will remain the same. Competition will be between Davids and Appiah cos Appiah was brought to juve as a back up for Davids and possibly replace him in the future.

Poor Maresca....his a** will be growing roots to the bench :down:

i hope he doesn't leave, and i hope he finds some more space. it's time Conte left.

with all the midfielders we have, maybe we could try the 3-5-2 sometime...

Majed - Maresca is actually the only player that can play as AM C instead of Nedved. Finally the Czech can rest in a couple of matches thanks to Enzo, so I think he will be playing quite a bit.

Still I'm notconvinced by the words of the David's agent. Maybe he's saying those things to hide the fact there might be some sort of deal going behind the juve backs, or maybe he's trying to make it look like Davids is the good guy and wants to stay with juve, but juve don't want him. Before anything is signed, there will be a lot of talking.

These words dont mean anything.
All agents always talk like this. These are just media manipulations. If davids wants to leave he will. So we really shudnt believe what these guys say.
