Radamel Falcao failed loan bid not a disappointment for Juventus

Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri says he is not disappointed that his club missed out on the signing of Radamel Falcao, insisting that he is satisfied with his club's work in the transfer market this summer.

The Bianconeri placed a loan bid to bring Falcao to Turin, but the Colombian instead accepted a more lucrative offer from Manchester United. His arrival would have complimented the arrivals of Alvaro Morata, Kingsley Coman, Patrice Evra and Roberto Pereyra, but Allegri claims that the Serie A champions are in a great position already.

"Juve's transfer dealings were intelligent," he told reporters in Nyon where he was participating in the Elite Club Coaches Forum. "We worked well with considered choices. We didn't just buy for the sake of it, considering our squad was already strong. Falcao? No, I'm not disappointed."

Keeping hold of Arturo Vidal was an equally important objective of the transfer window, although Allegri never had any fears about losing the Chilean midfielder.

"Right from when I got here, I knew Vidal was not on the market and he would not be sold," he added. "That's how it was too."

Allegri inherited a side which had won Serie A three seasons in a row and he says the objective this season is to "win the title again," although he knows it is going to be tougher this time around.

"There's Roma and then there's AC Milan, who have done some great transfers to build a side capable of fighting for a top-three finish," he said. "Then there's Inter, Lazio, and Fiorentina who have the addition of [Mario] Gomez while [Juan] Cuadrado has stayed.

"Then there's Napoli, who everybody was writing off after they lost to Athletic Bilbao, but then they won their first game in the league in Genoa. It's going to be a long season."

It is also a season he hopes will not be over in December as far as the Champions League is concerned, like it was last year for the Bianconeri.

"The Champions League is an objective of ours and it's essential that we reach the knockout stage, and then there's the January transfer window and, from March, the competition transforms completely," he said. "Once we reach the last-16, we'll try to be ready to face whichever opponents we draw."
