SAINTS loanee Dani Osvaldo wants to make his move to Juventus permanent this summer.
But the Italian international admits he might not get the chance to stay with the Serie A champions.
Osvaldo has failed to score in the league for Juve after joining them on loan in January following his training ground assault on team-mate Jose Fonte.
“At the moment I don't know if I will stay at Juventus, but I hope so,” he told the Italian media.
“I agree that I haven't been at my best during my spell at Juventus. “But I still believe in being part of Italy's World Cup squad. I've been involved a lot in the build-up to Brazil and I want to be there so much.”
Osvaldo, Saints’ record signing at around £15m last summer, remains under contract there until 2017.
