[Sampdoria transfer guru Beppe Marotta had been offered the role of director general by Serie A powerhouse Juventus, but claims the timing is just not right for such a move] I have thought this over and weighed things up over the past few days. I can’t deny that Juve’s offer flattered me, I can’t deny that a proposal from the most winning club in Italy pleased me. But, in the end, I decided that, at the moment, there are no temporal grounds for this move

[Marotta has been at Samp since 2002 and is tied to the Ligurians until 2011] In these seven years, it was not the first time that I have received offers from other clubs. But much of the credit has to go to Sampdoria and the Garrone family, who have given me this opportunity and the fans who are special. Of course, when I started out my dream was to join one of the most important sides in the world. Juve are among these, but I’m staying here for now

[Former Juventus CEO Marotta in talks to become new Inter chief] I will not go abroad. Italy represents the best, of sport and more. For my part there is the will to stay here. I intend to continue my business in this country

[Marotta announced moments after the Bianconeri’s victory over Napoli in Turin on September 28 that his eight-year stint as sporting director would come to an end the following month due to the club’s desire to enact a profound renovation] It’s what the club want and there wasn’t one particular thing which sparked it. I just align myself with their ideas and directives, for my love of the people and of Juventus. If Juve reach the final of the Champions League, I would be happy because it would also be the fruit of my work and that of my assistants. If they go all the way, I will be there to support them as a fan

[Can transfer market maestro Marotta help Inter knock Juventus off their perch?] I believe that the dominance of the Bianconeri can last a long time. They have a very strong organizational and technical structure

[Inter managing director Beppe Marotta has ruled out a transfer of Mauro Icardi to Juventus while adding a move for Paulo Dybala is more fantasy than reality] When you define a project, you also need to find the ideal profiles for that project. It’s not right to go into the details now, but we discussed it from all elements of the club and made this painful decision

We are not stupid, we realise these players are our assets and we have no intention of wasting that, but one must have the courage of convictions and we are sure we’re doing what is best for the club, without disrespecting two professionals. There is no lack of respect, so they will train with us and we’ll respect their rights to train

[However, Marotta shot down any talk of Icardi heading to Juventus this summer, with the Serie A champions often linked to the Argentine] I’d exclude it right now. There aren’t the conditions to do that. Today the player is the protagonist of his own future. We need to find a club that can meet his needs

[Among the reports of Juventus’ interest in Icardi, came the possibility of a swap for his countryman Paulo Dybala, who’s future is also in question in Turin] I think it’s over the top to think about that right now. I know how good Dybala is, but suggesting an exchange with Icardi is something of a utopia. We sit at the window and watch what’s happening

[Marotta also confirmed Inter are targeting Roma’s Edin Dzeko and Cagliari’s Nicolo Barella though they are still trying to find a deal with their respective clubs] It’s still something of a chess game where buyer and seller are playing with their strategy. I cannot deny Dzeko and Barella are objectives for us. The clubs are trying to find the right deal, there is a player who appreciates the destination and we are still in the negotiation phase to find a breakthrough

[Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has confirmed the club are in the hunt for two strikers] We are seeking two strikers, one more experienced and another younger, because as of today we only have Lautaro Martinez. Last season we also had Keita Balde Diao and Mauro Icardi, now we have only one forward. We’re trying to ponder and evaluate the various profiles, but it’s a year of change, Conte and his new ideas have arrived, whereas next year we’ll certainly be more prepared and streamlined

I know Conte very well, I know his language and how to interpret him in the best way. The whole club is in sync, even in symbiosis, with the coach, with his focus on details, the fact he is very demanding and has a strong working culture at the base of everything. This is why he feels the need to have a team at his disposal as soon as possible. However, the long transfer window means clubs expand their timing a little and it hasn’t really gone into the next phase yet. It’s obvious that we are struggling above all in attack, but we want to do things calmly so that we don’t make any hasty choices. Every decision will be made and shared with Conte, without doubt, but we must also recognise that there are economic balances to be respected and so we are keeping a close eye on the Financial Fair Play situation. We cannot make too heavy an investment, as we risk falling back into the UEFA bad books.

[Marotta talked further about the balance required for Conte in dealing with his current squad] We are with the coach in wanting to build a competitive squad and we know the great difficulties he is having for his working methods. When I talk about focus on details, it also means being rigid in his squad structure. On the one hand, there is the need to create a team and bring in new faces, on the other the requirement to sell those who are surplus to requirements and no longer part of the project, taking nothing away from their professionalism. It’s natural that a player who is ready to leave won’t participate with too much intensity in pre-season training. It’s difficult to create a definitive team structure in such a long transfer window. I want to reiterate that Conte’s needs are our needs, to improve and reinforce the team

[Inter’s only league defeat this season came against Juventus, and they have dropped just two points from their other 13 games] It’s still only Week 14, so we are well aware that winning the Scudetto from this first season will be difficult. Juve have two very strong teams to call on, as they have two players for every role, and I think they’ll do it again this season. In any case, I will admit that I did not expect such an immediate impact from Antonio Conte on our squad

[Inter general manager Beppe Marotta has confirmed the club’s interest in Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal] We’ll do something, it’s an important moment and we want to keep going. Vidal is one of our targets. As for [Tottenham playmaker Christian] Eriksen, the market closes at the end of January. We’re working hard, but to improve the quality of our squad, important signings are needed and it’s for this obvious reason that there are difficulties

[Inter are also believed to be interested in Manchester United captain Ashley Young, while Inter winger Matteo Politano is reported to be a target for rivals AC Milan] There’s a lot of speculation right now, we’re all active. Generally speaking, you all know very well that you can do tonight what you don’t do today

[Arturo Vidal’s proposed transfer from Barcelona to Inter depends on whether or not Ernesto Valverde is relieved of his managerial duties at Camp Nou] It depends on various factors. Arturo Vidal’s a player that interests us but I think at the moment Barcelona’s coach is at risk [of being sacked], so the situation depends on that

[The Nerazzurri could dethrone Juventus if they continue on their current trajectory, with Marotta admitting that such a feat would be a moment of great transition in Italian football] It would certainly be a moment of great transition. What matters is that we finish at the top at the end, even if Juventus has the capacity to finish ahead of us. Inter will win the Serie A if Juventus lose it

[Inter CEO Beppe Marotta has looked to shut down ongoing speculation linking Lautaro Martinez with a move to Barcelona] Rumours regarding Lautaro? He is very young and improving. He is only interested in wearing the glorious shirt of Inter. This club has nothing to envy others. Players can leave only if they ask to leave

[Former Tottenham star Christian Eriksen was Inter’s highest-profile arrival and Marrota declared he’s been impressed with how the Denmark international is settling] He is already the real Eriksen and then there needs to be a period of acclimatisation. However, 14 players play every game so as such some start the game and some finish it, but Eriksen has already done very well
