The agent of Juventus starlet Sebastian Giovinco has backed his client for a long-term future in Turin, despite the club being linked with a move for Sampdoria's Antonio Cassano.
The 22-year-old is widely regarded as one of the brightest prospects in the Italian game, despite having only made a handful of starts for Juve to date.
Giovinco's representative, Claudio Pasqualin, told Radio Kiss Kiss: "I do not know if Cassano will come to Juve.
"My feeling is that things will work out in very different way from the one the media is currently telling us. Very clearly, Giovinco has a contract with Juventus until 2013.
"There is a project for him to be a part of and he wants to remain in Turin permanently.
"He is ambitious and determined to be a future leader of Juventus, no matter how the situation with Cassano finishes."
