Juve no longer keen on Stankovic

Story Tools

MILAN, Italy (Reuters) -- Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi says the Italian champions are no longer interested in signing Lazio's Serbian midfielder Dejan Stankovic.

Stankovic, whose contract at Lazio ends in June, has been strongly linked with a mid-season move to Juventus or their rivals Inter Milan.

But Moggi told Gazzetta dello Sport that he had informed Inter his club were no longer bidding for the player.

"We wanted Inter to know that we are no longer interested in Stankovic after the joke he made," said Moggi.

"First he signed with us and then he went to Inter to ask for double what he makes at Lazio," said the Juve official.

Stankovic has emerged as one of the top attacking midfielders in Serie A after joining Lazio from Red Star Belgrade in 1998 and is the biggest name in Serie A likely to move during the January transfer window.
