Juventus director Beppe Marotta has confirmed that the club will ‘sign Domenico Berardi’.

Marotta was at a ‘Football Leader’ event in Amalfi earlier today and was quizzed by journalists about various transfer rumours connected to the Bianconeri.

“This is a group that’s difficult to improve but we always want to be more competitive,” he told Sky Sport Italia.

“Berardi is a great talent, there’s a verbal agreement with Sassuolo and Juventus have the moral right of first refusal and we’re going to complete this deal.

“Morata? He’s becoming a champion, we’ll do everything possible to keep him in Turin.

“Real Madrid’s buy-back clause is like the Sword of Damacles, but we’ll meet with them after the Champions League final.

“Pelle? The only unknown in the attacking department is Morata, only in that case will we evaluate other investments.”
