I want to remain at Juventus forever - Felipe Melo

Brazilian jokes about his value after overcoming inauspicious start at club

Felipe Melo is eyeing a long-term sojourn at Juventus after finally regaining the form that saw him move to the club.

The Brazilian endured a difficult first season in Turin, as he failed to impress fans and pundits alike after making the move from Fiorentina, but this season the enforcer has returned to his best.

"I am well as I am now. I was bought for €25 million (£21m), but now I am worth €35m (£30m)," Melo joked with Tuttosport.
