Melo claims Juve exit is imminent

Brazil midfielder Felipe Melo has claimed he is set to leave Juventus in the "next few days".

• Juve urged to up Rossi offer

Melo's future has been the subject of conjecture this summer amid suggestions Juventus are open to offers for his signature.

The 28-year-old joined Juve from Fiorentina in 2009 and endured a poor first campaign at the Old Lady. But last season his performances were improved.

It is unknown where Melo is destined after revealing he has received a lucrative offer from another European club, although Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Galatasaray have all been mentioned.

He said: "I've received an offer from Europe that will vastly improve my salary. We're finalising the details.

"We're finalising the details and over the next few days everything should be completed.

"I was not cut from the Juventus squad. Quite simply, in agreement with the directors, we decided it was inconvenient that I should only play in Serie A, considering my salary and the contract that runs to 2014."
