Juventus’ response for “Bernardeschi – Barcelona” deal
Defending champion of the Spanish La Liga, Barcelona is believed to be moving to recruit one to two newer ammunition in the transfer market this winter. Italian winger Federico Bernardeschi is believed to be one of their game players. In fact, reportedly the Catalan giants have sent an official offer to Juventus.
At Juventus, Bernardeschi is quite reliable, even since he was bailed out from AS Roma in the summer of 2017. But indeed, since Maurizio Sarri’s arrival, he has rarely been a mainstay on the front lines. The former Napoli coach prefers to play Dybala, Higuain and Ronaldo.
The situation the player tried to use Barcelona. The Catalan giant is indeed in need of a new attacker intake following the injury of Luis Suarez some time ago. Juventus winger is said to be exchanged with Ivan Rakitic from Barcelona. Interestingly, there is news that claims that AC Milan are also interested in buying it.
In fact, the Rossoneri camp is believed to have offered Lucas Paqueta to Juventus as part of the payment for the former Fiorentina. Both AC Milan and Barcelona, are believed to have submitted official bid proposals. Related to this news, Juventus Sports Director Fabio Paratici finally spoke up.
He is very understanding that many clubs are interested in Juventus players, but in reality until now there has been no official offer from AC Milan or Barcelona for Bernardeschi.
“Juventus have a lot of quality players, so it’s normal that many clubs want our players. But, about this Bernardeschi, no one is interested. Barcelona and AC Milan did not submit anything to Juventus, “said Paratici.
Bernardeschi has played 89 times for Juventus and scored nine goals so far. However, this season he is rarely played by coach Maurizio Sarri. The speed and accuracy of the bait made Barcelona interested.
Catalan giants are certain to lose Luis Suarez, even until the end of the season. For this reason, they are aiming for new attackers to cover the ‘hole’. Bernardeschi is considered the right solution. The Italian will take Griezmann’s place, while the Frenchman will take over Luis Suarez.
