Juventus director Pavel Nedved says the Serie A champions will not rest during their relentless pursuit of top transfer targets in the off-season.
Juve clinched their 28th Scudetto last month after becoming only the third side in history to go through an entire Serie A season undefeated.
Nedved insists there is no risk of the club resting on its laurels, claiming the Turin giants are doing their utmost to strengthen Antonio Conte’s squad for an assault on the Champions League next season.
“We have clear ideas (of what we want to do) and we will certainly not sleep,” the former Czech Republic international told Tuttosport.
Juventus are reportedly already close to agreeing a deal for Udinese duo Mauricio Isla and Kwadwo Asamoah, and have also been heavily linked with Pescara youngster Marco Verratti.
Meanwhile, Nedved feels he is getting to grips with his directorial role with the club he represented with such distinction as a player.
“When one stops playing, one must find his footing and it is not easy,” the 39-year-old said.
“You cannot set off by thinking, ‘I played the game for 20 years and I know everything about this world.’ The hell you do.
“You must start from scratch and learn everything about it. I did not know where to begin and how to position myself, but then, over time I found my way.”
Nedved played for the Juve for eight years between 2001 and 2009, winning the Ballon d’Or in 2003.
