Is Tiago On The Juve Chopping Block?

tiago mendes Is Tiago On The Juve Chopping Block? Rumours of Tiago Mendes leaving Juventus are circulating, after vacating his home in Turin.  The talented Portuguese midfielder was previously linked to both Tottenham and West Ham United of the English Premier League in January of this year. 

Tiago, who is a regular in the national team, spent one season at Chelsea after Jose Mourinho took him from Benfica and he played a substantial part in the Premier League winning season of 2004-05, making 34 appearances.

Things have not been as bright in Italy after the 13 million euro transfer from French side Lyon. Manager Claudio Ranieri has played the Portuguese sparingly and Goal.com described Tiago in his first term as, the third biggest flop of the season.  Missing a penalty Tuesday evening during the Trofeo TIM against AC Milan hasn’t improved the player’s situation.
