Domenico-Berardi-Italy

He has never been obsessive in his demands and has always had a corporate mind in understanding the extent to which a company can reach. For this reason Massimiliano Allegri continues to call for a play-maker which is still missing, but he never beats his fists or threatens who knows what consequences, and at the same time is preparing the plan B for his attack. Because a player of fantasy and quality serves to the Juventus coach for the new technical project, even more so after the departures of Pirlo and Tevez. The objectives are clear and Allegri spoke Monday with Marotta before his contract renewal: Oscar remains the dream and to follow there is Isco.

If, however, were not to arrive the Brazilian of Chelsea let alone the Spaniard from Real Madrid, Juve have already prepared the alternative: Domenico Berardi. The 20 year old striker of Sassuolo is liked by the coach of Livorno and has those characteristics that other Juventus forwards can not boast. The ability to play on the right wing in a hypothetical offensive trident to the skill to move between the lines behind the other strikers, alternating plays of a high levels with goals (31 in 61 games in Serie A, one each 156′) thanks to the undoubted talent that he is gifted with.

Juve controls for a while now the card and the performance of Berardi. After having had him in co-ownership for two seasons with Sassuolo, this June decided to sell 50% to Emilian club for 10 million euro. Reserving, however, a right to repurchase as already established (and then carried out on Tuesday) with Zaza. For 18 million, therefore, Juve can take Berardi by the summer of 2016. Or before, if the market does not bring the expected reinforcement. Relations between the two clubs are so intense and great to the point of being able to strike up the operation at any time, until the last day of the market.
