Juventus Transfer Talk – Berardi, Lukaku, Iturbe and Sanchez

May 29, 2014 - 8:59 am

18th June 2014

Domenico Berardi  –  An outcome is expected to be reached today for Juve’s half of Domenico Berardi. From what i’ve read in the papers this morning, Saussolo are prepared to part with their half of the player in exchange for full ownership of Simone Zaza. Gazzetta, Tuttosport and various others are all stating that the player has already said yes to a move, despite his agent refuting this in the last few hours. It seems the likeliest deal to take place, especially with all the talk of Conte switching to a 4-3-3 and the relative ease with which Berardi would fit into this.

Alexis Sanchez – I’ve read a lot of conflicting reports on this potential move. The price seems an obvious stumbling block with Barcelona expecting at least £20m for the player. Manchester United were reported to be close to signing the player as the first major signing of the Van Gaal era. Liverpool were also interested in the Chilean but reports in the UK and in the Italian press suggest the player is more keen on a return to Italy and would prefer to play under Conte. A deal with the player was supposedly reached last week but the stumbling block was Barcelona’s valuation of the player.

Romelu Lukaku – The Belgian striker, currently on duty at the World Cup, is almost certain to leave England this summer. Asked about Juve’s reported interest in him, the Chelsea man said:

“I’m proud of Juventus’ interest in me, but I’m just thinking of Belgium for now,” [Sky Italia]

A later story appeared in the Metro Newspaper just yesterday stating that Chelsea want £32m for the striker and have already rejected a loan move from Juventus for the player.

[Source: Metro]

Juan Iturbe – A new name to be thrown into the mix. With Alexis Sanchez (see above) reportedly being priced out of a move to Turin, Juve may turn their attentions to Juan Iturbe of Hellas Verona. The talented winger was on loan to the Italian side last season but they made quick work of making the deal permanent at the end of May for a fee believed to be €15m. The latest on this comes from trusted transfer figure, Gianluca Di Marzio:

Juventus is monitoring the transfer market to find new reinforcements for Antonio Conte. They are targeting Hellas Verona’s Juan Manuel Iturbe and Romulo. The sporting director Sogliano attended Juventus’ meeting with Sassuolo and set the price for the Argentinian winger: €30M plus add-ons. Juventus isn’t interested at these conditions. They can offer at max €15M and give some players in exchange. The negotiation is difficult and has been postponed until the resolution of the co ownerships. (Source: Gianluca Di Marzio)

      Immobile should stay at Torino next season. Torino is playing European football! It will be good experience and he is not ready to start and we need a better striker than llorente. Immobile would waste a season as a 3rd choice striker. Decide after next season, or in January (help us hold scudetto if we have european ambitions).

        Papilaya(John)™★★★ May 29, 2014 at 4:48 pm

        But with the way hes banging in goals, he wont be a 3rd choice. He d be rotated along with Llorente. There wont be a 1st choice or 2nd choice, itll be who does better in training or whose style would be more effective against said opposition.

        Immobile is better than Llorente, he would start alongside Tevez. If anything, I would buy our half of Berardi and move him to Torino and move Boakye to Sassuolo, in exchange for our half of Immobile.

    So Marotta s favorite loan with OPTION to buy is now gone like the wind and it has turned into an obligation to buy… Does that mean Sassuolo will have to buy Berardi after next season if he were to stay there for an extended year(which is looking likely)?

      Juventin1897 May 29, 2014 at 4:54 pm

      Their contracts are signed as they are so it shouldnt affect them. As all italian laws there is probably wiggle room no one understands yet. Besides the ones making the decisions. Juve should bring him in just incase. As goes with Gabbiadini, Masi, Boakye, Immobile, Marrone, etc. Refresh all the loans to include reduced call-back fees, better buy-back priority options, and all.

        co-ownership is the only thing i know of that is getting abolished. as i understand, teams are allowed to extend co-ownerships for up to one more year, after that teams must decide whether to buy or sell the player.

      You can extend them for an extra year (btw its co-ownerships not loan and option to buy that is being stopped) but even so we could have just loaned berardi to sassuolo.. Come on John, get on the ball!

          No, im not kidding. Hes done a good job, but not a great job. And if you look at a list of the players hes bought, half are busts, or players i would consider busts, like Krasic, Isla, Gio, Vucinic and Quagliarella. Just because the fans like them, doesnt make them good players. Hes also passed up on many good players, just because he doesnt want to spend an extra 1-5m. But he finds money for gems like Padoin and Martinez, and money to co-own every fucking kid in Italy(that he will eventually let slip through his hands).

            Quags was pretty good until he tore his acl. Even then, he was always good in the CL. Vucinic is inconsistent but his runs of good form have been a major factor in our wins over the years

            tpick May 29, 2014 at 11:50 pm

            Quagliarella had a good half a season, and has been shit since then, scoring a couple decent goals here and there. Him not starting, and barely playing, should tell you how good he actually is, same goes for Vucinic. When we had shit forwards, of course they both looked good, but now that we have good forwards, you see how bad those 2 actually are in comparison. If I had to rate Marotta out of 10, hed be a 6.5. He tells people we have little money to spend, when in reality we could spend more on players, thats just not how he manages transfers. If we had Secco still, we wouldve fought for Aguero and Sanchez, amongst other players. He wouldve overpaid, but we wouldve had a much better team, a team that could fight every year for the CL. And no we wouldnt have gone bankrupt, we might have more debt, but no banks give a shit about football debt for top clubs, as evidenced by La Liga, EPL and Ligue 1.

            For the record, there arent any “10’s” out there as far as transfer directors go, for me at least. Atletico Madrid and Udinese would be the closest at an 8.5. Nobody is perfect, or even close to it, every director has a few “wtf” transfers, some more than others.

            i agree with alot of what you say but the part about secco is wrong…. sure, me and you would fight for those players because it’s common sense, any fan would make those types of players their first order of business.. he also didn’t in any remotely way show that he would have had a much better team, they were horrible when he was there, the worst in their history maybe… and about the debt thing, everyone would go into huge debt when buying those types of player on a consistent basis, thats why teams dont do it… Juve doesnt have the ability to carry debt loads like Man U, Barca or Madrid. plus they’re tight asses too.

            tpick May 30, 2014 at 12:26 am

            Playing a 4-4-2 is what killed us during the Secco era, going through what? 5 coaches in 2-3 seasons killed the team, and directly lead to 2 7th place finishes. We had a 3 CM team, but played Melo and Diego out of position. He wasnt afraid to spend big money, and for the most part, Melo, Diego and Amauri were all really good before coming to Juve. Thats what I liked about Secco, he gave us hope that the big name players could actually arrive at Juve. With Marotta, we know damn well that 25m is a stretch. And Im not talking about spending 100m like those teams you listed, but we could spend 50-70m again, like Secco did, and we would be fine. 70m would set us up nicely.

            adp1974 May 30, 2014 at 12:50 am

            yeah, he is a tight ass .. 25 million certainly is a stretch because I don’t think he ever spent even half that on a transfer … No? Vucinic and Martinez come to mind as his highest priced transfer.

          • Avatar
            tpick May 30, 2014 at 2:54 am

            Martinez…there’s a winner. I think vucinic and Matri were the most at around 18m. I just wish Marotta was a little more like secco. Not the overpaying part and ridiculous salaries part, but his ability to spend. His understanding that money spent now could set us up for seasons of positive returns. If secco had Marottas scouts we would’ve been golden. The scouts are who deserve a good bit of the credit for our current success.

          We dont have a tight budget, Marotta just tells people that. Do you honestly believe we only have 30-40m a season to spend on transfers? after years of Secco spending whatever he wanted? We make more money than we did when Secco was in charge, and are a higher profile team now, with more fans than ever.

            There was a global financial crisis in 2008. The auto industy (fiat is owned by agnellis) took major hits and still isnt recovered. It probably never will. Juve doesn’t have that much to spend. Although its unlikely they only have 40m to spend. It is more unlikely Juve could spend 100m+.

      At the time gio was worth the 11mil for half of him.. Besides with co ownerships it’s never really just half you’re paying for at the end.. It’s more 75%. I’m not that surprised by the fact that juventus are willing to accept this deal for him (even though I’m pissed about it) but the fact that Torino will accept it is the shock for me

        Maybe Marotta is just a ”go with the flow guy”. When it was allowed, he couldn’t help but go with it, now it’s not allowed, he will do something else that’s allowed and become a super director.

        I am happy it’s not allowed anymore because it was a pretty annoying thing.

      I wanna carry the cleat conversation onto here soo yea…

      Anyways, i like youre way of thinking when it comes to cleats. Nothing beats K leather, but im still a baby in soccer years so im still easily awed by flashy looking boots. I understand that cleats dont make you better; its the feel that matters. If shoes dont feel comfortable, you wont play well, but the shoe itself wont do crap. Maybe it ll make a slight difference, MAYBE, but nothing more. Tho this is the first time i spent that much for cleats. I usually pay 80-120$ for cleats and i once hit the jackpot and got K Leather/ carbon fiber Ctrs for 20$ at ross.

            From thanksgiving to last month, i went from 170 to 215 and lost it all in a month, NO LIE and i did in a healthy way.

            Anyways, i have many different style of plays. I love playing like Il Capitano. Just dance past or run past a player and slip through limited space for an assist, but i find it far easier to play like Pirlo/ Marchisio. Im not saying their style of plays are easy, just it comes to me more naturally. This past sunday i joined a team and the owner of the team was all over my balls! I bossed the midfield and marked out like 3 players by myself bwcause my cm partner was rubbish and the Lm was as well and i did it all successfully by replicating Principinos way of covering space and anticipating space. I also was beasting in the distribution part 🙂

            Well i made a complete flip in my eating habits. I went from eating complete junk(i.e. mcdonalds, pounds of ice cream, chips etc even at 1 am or later in the morning) to eating only chicken/roasted turkey breasts from ralphs, omelettes(for breakfast w/jalapeño, spinach, bits of broccoli, tomatoe, and leftover chicken/turkey), and fruits+almonds 2 hours after major meals(breakfast lunch dinner).

            My eating schedule pretty much is:

            The omelette i mentioned above using two eggs(no seasoning), but removing 1 and a half of egg yokes because all the bad fat and cholestrol is in the yoke. Then two hours later, i eat either an apple, banana or orange plus less than a hand full of almonds. For lunch i eat a mega sandwhich with low sodium Ezikial bread, no salt turkey breast slices(both bread and turkey i get from whole foods market), lettuce, tomatoe, jalapeño, cilantro(for added flavor), spinach, red onion, avocado, green bell pepper, cucumber, avocado flavored hummus(also from whole foods) and i slice a mini lime amd squeeze the liquid on the each slice of bread(also for flavor). For dinner amd second dinner i buy whole chicken( no salt or with seasoning doesnt really matter to me) and eat the legs and wings for first dinner and use a 3/4th of the breast for my second dinner and save the rest for my breakfast omelette. I try to get the roasted turkey breast, but thyre usually out, but when i do it, i divide it into thirds. Both dinners are with a hefty side of spinach. So yea thats meals for the past month. I also drink like 2-3 gallons of water a day plus i used to drink 4 tsll glasses of green tea a day before meals, but got too lazy to continue. Ill continue this post later if you any questions, go ahead and ask, i was nt as specific as i wanted to be. I was also typing it in my gyms sauna and kinda wanna let my head rest… Plus i have to drive home :p

    So tuttosport say that Conte personally spoke to Sanchez and told him to join us next season and explain his role and importance…

    If that is true, theres a major chance that he will be coming. Conte is a very persuasive man, but the only problem would be Marottas unwillingness to spend.

        Pirlo, Marchiso, Kroos and Pogba all for a deeper position(in my favored 4-2-3-1) would be so amazing. Pirlo wouldnt have to play so much and get some nice rest when we need him for bigger matches.

      I think if Conte has had a personal talk with Sanchez, Marotta already gave the okay. If Conte, the clubs and Sanchez all agree, what will Marotta do? I don’t see him pussying out when everything is a done deal. I really hope you are right that Conte personally talked to Sanchez.

      Marotta is a puppet .. conte and agnelli are making the decisions.

      besides, didnt conte stay for the year because they were supposed to have guaranteed him they’d spend the money to get the players he wanted?

      i thought that was the deal ….

        I sometimes suspect the same thing, but you cam tell the three have the say in every decision. I believe Agnelli provides the budget, Marotta negotiates and Conte asks for what he wants and through what hes said in the past, hes not really all that he wants in terms of squad depth.

        And i never believe that Conte was gonna leave. I think Conte was trying to make his voice heard and let the fans know that he knows what it takes to win the Cl, but Agnelli/ Marotta werent willing to meet him there.

          if you think marotta doesnt spend because he’s the tight ass, you’re wrong. he doesnt spend because the club is tight .. when i say he’s a puppet, I’m sort of exaggerating but of the three, I think he’s 3rd in command ..sort of like a GM like Cashman, he’s good at what he does, but those around him are making the decisions, he’s just the administrator.

            Wat. Neymar is a twig man. I wasnt directing what I said totally at you. And its true. Neymar is top 5 under 25 talent.

            Also its very tough to be a “class” player when you are young. Experience is bulk contributor to classiness and being young he just doesnt have much yet. Neymar has impressed me very much at points. He torched Brazils club league, I think he will do the same in Europe after he bulks a little and learns some more.

            Edit: Also I think he will never succeed his full talent at Barce

            That is pretty much what Marc means. Marc probably thinks Neymar is a good player, but people are overrating him heavily. His first goal was not a good shot, and he’s lucky that it went in, yet people praise him to be a football god. His penalty was bad, but people praise him as a football god. That gets pretty annoying at times.

            Juventin1897 June 13, 2014 at 10:55 pm

            What 4-4-2 is the anti 4-3-3. Instead of attacking wingers its more defensive-ish minded wingers. So they are midfielders. It was most popular up until the 80s and refashioned and played alot by Sir Alex Ferguson at Man U.
            Seen when played (Treble winning):
            —Yorke-Cole–
            Giggs-Scholes-Keane-Beckham
            Irwin-Johnson-Stam-Neville

            Then (CL winning):
            —Berbatov-Rooney–
            Ronaldo-Scholes-Carrick-Nani
            Evra-Vidic-Ferdinand-Rafael

Even sheiks would be idiots to do such a thing.

            Juve knows the cash cow they have. If they were smart they would spend money on getting deals for pogba in commercials, starring in this and that. Pay the media to put him everywhere.

What makes you think a team like PSG wouldn’t pay that when they have already offered something in the vicinity of 70 million which was turned down by the club.

            Pogba is happy right now and i really think he will be here next season. Reality is that it’s pretty much 50/50. Reality certainly isn’t that he will leave, that’s just your negative imagination. I think he will leave in 2/3 seasons and join Real Madrid like Zidane did and we will get a shitload of money for him.

    Rumors Ive seen recently;
    IN: Sanchez, Morata, Candreva, Guarin
    OUT: Vucinic (Valencia), Isla (Inter), Quagliarella

    The Morata deal would be one of Reals famous buy back deals. The numbers I saw, which are way too high, are 30m to buy and 40-45m to buy back in a few seasons. 25m for Sanchez, but Marotta once again refuses to just pay, and is offering 18m. Vucinic or Isla in part exchange for Guarin. Guarin is a waste, if we get any CM we should get either Allan or Bruno Fernandes from Udinese.

    Juve make a formal offer of 12m for Morata. Apparently Wolfsburg had offered 20m, but I cant see Morata wanting to go play there. With the Berardi reports, idk why he would come here, seeing as he would be 4th in the order. Hed be a good pickup for the bench though, especially if we can escape Reals buyback clause.

          Yeah I wouldn’t let go of him this easy either, he’s very promising. I would rather pay up now, even for both of them and with a straight loan back if Sassuolo agree to that. It’s always the same, managements in Italy complain about a lack of funds and that they can’t make big money transfers, but they don’t invest/use youth either.

          Or at least, we don’t use it properly. Milan is better at using youth, but they buy so many washed up 30 year olds, all wasted money too, like we waste it on average players/youngsters we never give a chance

      It was balotelli vs 5 defenders.. He missed a chance, it happens. He can’t be singled out for blame here.

      The one positive from this game is the fact that that prick of a commentator is going home disappointed because England are out

    Thoughts:
    -Balotelli cannot face a 5 man defense alone. he gets disinterested early and it rubs off on the team
    -Italy need to rotate players more, this world cup will largely be about endurance
    -Prandelli doesnt have faith in Immobile
    -Abate fucking sucks
    -Barzagli and Chiellini looked sluggish
    -Thiago Motta isnt as improved as we thought
    -Darmian is human
    -Pirlo cannot play next to De Rossi, they get in eachothers way and play is disrupted when they are too close
    -Verratti should start over Thiago Motta
    -Sirigu made his case to start over buffon
    -Nothing to say about Cassano besides he played like shit
    -YOUTH/FITNESS seems to be the common denominator between teams playing best at this World Cup.

    -Costa Rica played a hell of a match, hats off to them.

      ImSoCool12345 June 20, 2014 at 6:24 pm

      I think that the reason fitness is getting wins is because Brazil’s temperature and humidity is just too much to handle for players with low stamina to play properly.

      And yes, Cassano and Balo were terrible. I just wanna see Immobile play a proper game to judge him.

      I think our midfield lineup is fine though.

        I feel Prandelli shouldve subbed off Balo, he was becoming more and more of a ghost after his 2nd chance on goal.

        Tho i thought the Cerci sub was smart. Pacey winger vs high defensive line… But it shouldve been a much earlier sub. Bringing in a player to make a difference that late in a match puts far too much pressure on him.

          Marc Dominic Zaroli June 20, 2014 at 9:02 pm

          Cerci or insigne would’ve been smart.. Or even both had he not put Cassano on.. At the time of putting him on it was a bad decision made worse by the fact we have seen how devastating an immobile-insigne partnership can be

    • Avatar
      Papilaya(John)™★★★ June 20, 2014 at 8:03 pm

      These are one of those moments where Prandelli frustrates the hell out of me. Thiago Motta has never impressed me in his natural deeper positions, so why play him in a more advanced position? Hes a crap player imo.

      Abate doesnt suck… Maybe today he did, but overall, hes a great winger.

      I agree Verratti shouldve started. He and Pirlo were the stars against England, why choose that useless motta over him? Another decision Prandelli made that frustrated the crap out of me.

      I disagree that Pirlo and De Rossi cant play together, they were an awesome pair in the euro. Perhaps its De Rossi playing behind Pirlo that is the problem.

      Edit: i wanna see Marchisio in the middle, im tired of seeing him on the flanks.

    I don’t know why everyone is critising balotelli, he was the one player driving us forward in the first half, immobile was anonymous and without balotelli we had no real outlet.
