Luciano Moggi insists Adrian Mutu will soon be wearing the colours of the Old Lady.Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi has confirmed that Adrian Mutu will soon be wearing the colours of the Old Lady, just as soon as The FA confirm the transfer.
The disgraced Romanian has initially signed for Livorno following his dismissal from Chelsea for a failed drugs test, due to the fact Juventus do not currently have a free place for an extra non-EU player.
However, Moggi has now revealed that the Turin giants have yet to receive clarification from The FA with regards to the transfer.
''The transfer is yet to arrive from the English federation to Livorno,'' confirmed Moggi.
''It is the last step that will allow us to close the thing.
''Livorno have signed him and will give him to us when the transfer arrives.
''We owe nothing to them (Chelsea). It's a player's problem, whilst between us and Mutu there is a well defined agreement.''
Moggi continued to express his delight that Juve had sealed a move for a player of considerable qualities, albeit in difficult circumstances.
''I have followed Adrian a long time, since he was a player with Verona,'' continued Moggi.
''Now we have the right occasion and we haven't missed it because Mutu is a player who belongs in the category of champions.''
