Marotta claims new stadium is crucial

Juve have struggled financially since Calciopolli, when they were relegated to Serie B, and have failed to compete for the top prizes in recent years.

Marotta said: “It’s a fundamental asset in which we have invested a lot. It will bear fruit in the future, bringing in revenue streams which are unthinkable now.

“I am talking about 10s of millions of €uros and of course the club will dedicate an important slice of these monies to investments in new players.”
