River Plate striker David Trezeguet has revealed that he rejected an opportunity to return to Juventus in the January transfer window.
The experienced striker left the Bianconeri on a free transfer in the summer of 2010, and has since featured for Hercules, Bani Yas and River Plate.
Following a disappointing start to the current season, the 35-year-old was linked with a return to Turin, but the transfer never materialized.
Trezeguet now reveals there were some contacts, but that he ultimately pulled the plug on the deal.
“There was a key contact to return to Juventus, but my future is at River Plate, where I want to end my career,” the Frenchman told radio programme This is River on AM 770 Radio.
Trezeguet has also revealed his plans to become a manager once his current contract expires in two years’ time.
The veteran striker helped the Argentine giants return to the top flight by scoring 13 goals in 19 league fixtures last season, but he has largely struggled for form this term, netting only once in ten league matches.
