OFFICIAL: Alessandro Matri returns to Juventus

February 2, 2015 - 5:10 pm

Juventus have re-signed Alessandro Matri on loan until the end of the season.

It’s Matri’s second spell at the club, having left the Bianconeri in 2013 to re-join AC Milan in a €11m deal.

The 30-year-old striker struggled for playing time in Milan and was expected to spend this season on loan at Genoa but will instead return for a second spell in Turin until the end of the 2014/15 season.

Juventus confirmed the deal earlier today with a statement on the clubs official website:
“Alessandro Matri has today returned to Juventus after agreeing terms on a loan switch from Genoa until 30 June 2015.

“The striker, 30, represented the club between January 2011 and August 2013, winning back-to-back Scudetto and Super Coppa titles during a successful period in Turin.”

    One positive take from this move is that we were spared the likes of Osvaldo, Boriello and Cassano. Matri knows he will get very little playing time and he has probably accepted that fact when agreeing to this move. Genoa probably let him go to save on his rather high salary. Juve just want him as insurance in case a serious injury crisis hits.

    If Allegri gives time to Matri at Coman’s expense, I’ll start an international revolt from my corner in the American backwoods.

      He probably thought to himself, “Do I want a free Serie A title, even if I won’t actually do much to conrtibute to winning it? Fuck yeah!”
