Juventus striker Alessandro Matri has said rumours he is set to leave the club are ‘absurd’.

The 28-year-old’s future was called into question after the Serie A champions announced a deal to sign Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente at the end of the season.

However Matri has said he finds competition for places healthy, and added it will benefit the club as a whole.

“The transfer rumours about me are absurd. I find the competition for places here very stimulating,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“I still have four years left on my contract (until June 2017) and I have always felt the backing of the club.”

The former Cagliari man said he dreams of making himself a Juventus hero in the Champions League and revealed his ambitions to star for Italy at next year’s World Cup.

“It’s also my dream to score a decisive goal in the Champions League seeing as I have yet to net in that competition. I’m hoping to find some space with the national side again as I want to be at the World Cup in Brazil,” he said.

Matri has scored five goals in 12 games for Antonio Conte’s side this season.
