Leandro Fernandes to join Juventus

January 30, 2018 - 6:15 pm

Juventus have reportedly agreed a deal to sign 18-year-old PSV midfielder Leandro Fernandes.

The U18 Dutch international of Brazilian descent had been linked with a move to Turin last week when it emerged his agent Mino Raiola had visited Juventus management at Vinovo to discuss his client.

There was some confusion over who his official representative in Italy was, with agent Domenico Scopelliti insisting that Raiola did not represent the interests of the youngster.

Reports from Goal Italia today suggest that an agreement has been reached and the player is expected in Turin tomorrow to complete his medical and sign for the club.

The highly rated youngster has rapidly progressed through the Dutch international youth ranks and was previously a target for both AC Milan and Roma.

      Still no confirmation of Kean’s new contract…which expires in a few months time. Perfect situation for Raiola. Worst possible scenario for the club. Still…we played a similar game with Coman and Pogba.

      The Dutch lad looks to have great feet, solid in the middle bombing forward. The U19s are quite haphazard this term New manager, a fair few players well below the upper age limit coming in direct from the U17s. Progress if they are to mature enough to earn a solid move, yet I suspect we won’t see much in the terms of form until late this season or next. Let us see what the Dutchy can add to to the mix.

      Hope all is well in your world my friend…you find me presently beside a pixie queen here in Hove. A curious adventure of ever blossoming beautiful moments…
