Transfer News

Official: Ciro Immobile to Borussia Dortmund

May 29, 2014 - 7:44 pm

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Sky Sport, and several other outlets, Borussia Dortmund has finally reached an agreement with Juventus and Torino on the sale of Ciro Immobile. Dortmund will pay 19.4 million euros – roughly 26.3 million dollars – for Immobile, who has agreed on a five year contract paying around two million euros a season.

As this is a co-ownership, Juve and Torino split the money. So, Juve will receive around 9.7 million euros – 13.1 million dollars – for their half of Immobile. That’s slightly less than they paid for Tevez, and slightly less than they received for Alessandro Matri. Both deals were around 12 million euros.

It’s not a great deal for Juventus, but Dortmund just got themselves a proven striker – at least in the league – for under 20 million euros. Now Immobile will have a chance to play in Champions League, and for a “big” European side. It seems that, if anything, Immobile is the winner here.

    Wow … That’s all I can say. Wow.

    I like this move. Both for him and for the future of the national team. He’ll play on a big side, in the CL and get the experience and exposure he needs to be a prime time guy.

    He didn’t want to be here, I don’t think he ever did. His run in with Pirlo last year probably said alot about the relationship between Immobile and Juve. Heck he may have even hard fouled Pirlo on purpose to make it impossible for them to play together. And besides that, his amount of playing time wouldn’t have been guaranteed the way the set up is so I really don’t blame him for not having to worry week in and week out how conte was feeling, fuck that.

    Having said all that, it’s sad to see young italian talents like Verratti and Immobile feature on big teams in other countries.. This didn’t happen before but it’s starting to more and more…. Worrisome.

      If Immobile is at Juve and he proves his skills, Conte will play him every week. Hasn’t he proved that with Tevez? The only person Conte has a fetish for is Padoin and he’s no attacker so he won’t interfere with Immobile.

      Maybe you’re right about him fouling Pirlo on purpose, but it still sucks. We’re gonna see him play for Dortmund in the CL now and i am gonna be so butthurt when he scores lots for them.. On the other hand, it is good he didn’t come to us if he really didn’t want to, because then it wouldn’t have worked out anyway. Hopefully Berardi will surpass Immobile and we’re gonna play it smart this time.

          Who knows what happened there. Maybe they didn’t like eachother. And let’s be honest, the decission is easily made between Immobile and Conte. Conte’s meaning to the club far surpasses Immobile, so if they didn’t like eachother, Immobile has to go.

            I think its because Conte knows Ciro isnt a hardworking striker… But neither is Llorente. So idk. I dont want to believe that they have a bad relationship tho.

            But Vucinic did end up being a worker for the first season at least. Plus Mirko s great tactical ability which Conte greatly appreciates which is definitely an added bonus in Conte s eyes

            Top Italian coaches are easy to come by, top Italian forwards aren’t so bountiful these days.. They can’t really have had a bad relationship having had barely any time together! Conte is obviously more important to us but there is no way they can have issues with each other and if conte doesn’t want him for tactical reasons then I’m not convinced conte knows tactics.

            It doesnt take much to have a bad relationship with someone!

            But still, i dont believe thats it. The only logical thing i can think up is Ciro not fitting into Contes favorite tactics. If we look at his past, its blatant that he prefers either a harworking/creative striker or a big man up top whose great with his feet and the poacher type strikers usually dont make it far with Conte i.e. Matri.

            You still don’t know what happened between them. Remember Krasic and Conte? A couple of words were enough for him to make Krasic go away. You weren’t there, so you can’t judge about this. Atleast i think you weren’t there.

            Ibrah was a starter while chiellini was on the bench yes. But Chiello still became a starter in 2006-07, when we needed him. Ibrah never did anything against Juve while at Inter or Milan. Chiello dominated him in every match.

            DutchJuve June 1, 2014 at 5:25 pm

            But Archer means Llorente has played matches with Chiellini for a whole season now, so he knows how Chiellini approaches matches as a starter and handles it. Ibra was gone when Chiellini became a starter and Chiellini was benched when Ibra played for us. So Ibra has only trained together with Chiellini on the same team.

        Same here. Im sad for Montilivo; this a terrible thing for anyone, but i believe this is better for Italy. Prandelli has his Montilivo fetish like Conte his super-Pado fetish and in all honesty, there are better players than him, especially for the Cam role. And i too wanna see Cassano, even if hes not the most loved player in Italy. He can provide a lot of creativity up top, but my first choice pair would still be Balo-Rossi.

            Im not comparing them, just the fetishes between the coaches. I dont hate him, but i dont think hes starting material nor do i think hes a player who could make an immediate difference if Italy were down. i would far rather start Pirlo, De Rossi, Marchisio and Veratti ahead of him(even if ive seen very little of Veratti). Yea Prandelli does often use him as an attacking mid, but even in the position i feel there more competent players than him who could make a bigger difference throughout all 90 mins or as a player that comes off the bench in attempt to change the game.

Regardless of his injury, I dont like Montolivo and never did. I actually get furious when I see him on the pitch for the national team, but that’s just my opinion…

          I’ve actually written about that a few times… My wish would have been for both aquilani and montolivo not to be anywhere near this team come world cup time.

        The game got annoying for me because the level was either too high or too low. I either won every match 5-0 or lost every match 5-0. There is no perfect skill level for me. Never was on any fifa game. So annoying.
        I will probably buy FIFA 15 though because my home town club will be on it as they promoted to the eredivisie 😀 Will be alot of fun winning the CL with them.

          Also, you have to be able to beat everyone you play mate. I never played a fifa game where I thought “this guys better” And i always scored 3+ times. Sometimes someone would get more than me though. Once you learned how to score every time from scoring positions, game was much better. Make sure you get gold or whatever on all the drills and can beat legendary computer every time. The possession, ball control, and shot control you learn rapes online.

            Well, fifa and real life are very different. Fifa you do a move with Giovinco and fake the defender and give open through ball to teamate for a goal. In real life I do a double stepover and hit it with my heel on the second one and lose the ball behind me.

            lol. I am curious how our attack will do this world cup. Robben has had an amazing 2 seasons so i think he will be a huge factor in our glory if we get any. Van Persie hasn’t been very great under Moyes, but he said that he can communicate and work really well with Van Gaal. Our midfield is solid and i’m happy De Jong is there to stop off some of the big guys. It’s just the defence. 3 of the 5 players in our 5 men defence are from Feyenoord and have experienced nothing at all on international level.

        Getting both of those players would be a great way to start your MLS debut. I think they still do expansion drafts in the MLS too, so current teams can only protect like 7 players, and the expansion teams get their pick from all of the rest. NYCFC and Orlando City could be great teams in the debut seasons, Orlando is rumored to be in talks with Kaka and Robinho.

            I admit I do question a number of things that he does but you can’t argue with his results so far. He’ll most likely use his favoured 4-3-1-2 but I wouldn’t play marchisio in the attacking position id put verratti there, he plays well closer to the strikers and plays the ball into space almost as well as pirlo from that position. Plus marchisio’s work rate is of greater effect that but further back.

He was good for Parma, but Parma is not the level Italy wants to be at. I don’t wanna see Cassano as a starter. Sometimes you are hard to understand. You keep expressing your fetish about Rossi and then you say you’re not convinced he’d work out with the best attacker Italy has. Or would you rather leave Balotelli out than Rossi? You also really wanted Juve to get Balotelli, so that can’t be it.

So yeah. Where you play doesn’t matter, class is class and it’s not as if cassano is going to cave under the pressure because he’s done it all before.. In fact he has a huge amount more than Rossi. Dutch you really are slow you know? Just because I mention that I doubt Rossi-balotelli would work or that cassano Rossi has shown to work in the last doesnt meant that is what I want to see.. Also you really come across in an idiotic manner when you use terms such as ‘keep expressing my fetish about Rossi’ when all I did was question the decision not to take him and say that I was happy he was doing so well earlier in the season.

            Cassano wasnt world class, but he was and is still a great player who could create moments of brilliance at any given moment due to his creativity. Hes Italys most creative striker when it comes to passing. The only reason why he left both Milan clubs is because he doesnt give a damn about training or anything really. I remember when he was in the bench with Milan whilst facing roma, you see Totti about take a corner and out of nowhere you see him go up to Totti trying to mess with him. So point is, he wasnt bad, he was a very important player for both Milan clubs, but he was just an idiot.

        Marc, Italy hit 2 crossbars, many missed sitters, defending wasnt great. Chiellini was beat to the byline by some white haired geezer… It just wasnt great from Italy.

Idk why people ever worry after friendlies., Italian teams never try in them.

    Holy fuck if we get Lukaku I will be so happy. That kid is going to be special. I think If we get him, Drogba will come too. Drogba has talked about their relationship many times at chelsea, saying he knows he’s an idol to lukaku and he became his mentor for a while. Drogba has said Lukaku has abilities Drogba never had, and is better at his age than Drogba was. When Lukaku missed a penalty to lose the supercup to Bayern, Drogba tweeted him saying “Only those who don’t take a penalty will never miss, and you were strong enough to do it. You are learning, the same way I did with my red card in Moscow or this semi final against Barcelona!! Keep on working hard better days are coming for sure…”

    Drogba would be a minor +, but Lukaku is top talent and will show that this world cup. Because hes getting the starting spot with an injured Benteke

            You want all these young players to come play backup. You cannot do that with youth or they will rot. Lukaku shined at Everton and can be Capocanonniere his first season if given a chance. Especially if we get the likes of Sanchez to service him. Llorente can rotate in if he wants to. But I’d much rather have the experience of Drogba to help our young forwards mature. Drogba has said hes willing to take pay cuts to play for a good side. And that he likes Juve a lot.

            llorente has the perfect mix of experience and ability. drogba is past it. he managed 10 goals in the turkish league. i’m all for giving youth playing time but you don’t go and through them into the deep end. lukaku is great and can play in big games and i really want him but i wouldn’t start him ahead of llorente. why? he lacks experience. experience comes from playing but that’s why i want him to be a backup to llorente. llorente can’t play all the games. conte will be able to rotate the two really well.

            You dont get good young players to your team by saying “heres the bench”. Pogba came to Juve because he did not play enough for ManU(re). Lukaku started all season for everton. 16 goals too. It would be the worst thing to send him to the bench after that season.

            Pogba started here as a rotation player, in his first season he only made 27 appearances. Lukaku has had a great deal of experience, yes, but I still think if he were to play behind Llorente at least to begin with he would play at least 30 games, grow as a player and be happy with the amount he has played

            Look at Pogba. 2 years younger than Gabbiadini and started over Marchisio in many big games. It depends on the player.

            Gabbiadini is actually a CF, he does well at LW and RW too. He hasnt yet defined his best role since hes too young. Berardi too somewhat, but he looks like RW is his home. Sanchez plays LW just as well as RW and did for Udinese and Barcelona many times.

          • Avatar
            Marc Dominic Zaroli June 7, 2014 at 9:47 pm

            No shit. But he has more experience at RW than LW and if we are to play a 4-3-3 we need natural wingers not people who are there out of necessity to have an additional winger. Berardi is RW yes but you can’t say you’d rather him play there than Sanchez who btw doesn’t play as well as at LW. If we are to use a 4-3-3 we need 2 natural wingers because starting gabbiadini out of position in big games is only going to lead to him being criticised which will send him on a downward spiral and berardi isn’t ready to start week in, week out for us. I’d like to see him and gabbiadini used as alternatives (obviously with additional playing time for gabbiadini at CF and plenty of minutes for berardi in the RW role) but if we are to do well in Europe with a 4-3-3 we need 2 high class and experienced wingers

            Juventin1897 June 7, 2014 at 9:58 pm

            Berardi isnt ready at all to start for Juve, I never said that. But we are not going to get two high class experienced wingers in their natural position. That just wont happen this summer. Juve do NOT have the money for that. When it comes to Europe, Juve will not win the Champions league next year without massive strokes of luck. Quarter finals is a great achievement.

            Also I dont think its fair to say sanchez is limited to RW. He is a winger and unless you can quote him prefering the RW and/or factually does better on the right, hes not a RW. I have seen him do great things on the left wing.

            download a free emulator for your computer or phone. https://coolrom.com/emulators/

            the best pokemon games are the hacks, which are games computer nerds completely redid and some of them have mixed generations of pokemon. one has like 500 in one game. just search pokemon hack on coolrom.

            James is awesome and badass, but i’m not quite sure if he can compare to this squirtle. They should replace Meowth with this Squirtle in team rocket so they can form the ultimate bad ass team. Squirtle would just be like ”Yeah.” everytime he has to say something. It would go like this:

            JESSIE: Prepare for trouble!
            JAMES: Make it double!
            JESSIE: To protect the world from devastation!
            JAMES: To unite all people within our nation!
            JESSIE: To denounce the evils of truth and love!
            JAMES: To extend our reach to the stars above!
            JESSIE: Jessie!
            JAMES: James!
            JESSIE: Team Rocket, blast off at the speed of light!
            JAMES: Surrender now, or prepare to fight!
            SQUIRTLE: Yeah. *plays around with his awesome sunglasses a bit*

        De Rossi is one im contemplating. I want a none Juve player. I know ill never buy a jersey that is from another club so might as well avoid buying any Juve players international shirt, but Pirlo is an Italian icon over anything! Oh decisions!

          What’s making me hesitate is the fact Roma are nike now so the strips will be easier to get so may get a de Rossi Roma one next season in which case I’d get a verratti 23 one for Italy

    It looks like Ghana fielded Asamoah as a LB and they beat South Korea 4-0. Could he be the black Zambrotta? Successfully move from outside mid to fullback. I wonder if Conte has taken notice, he could solve our LB problem, hes plenty fast enough.

    • Avatar
      Juventin1897 June 10, 2014 at 11:47 am

      Hes not defensively sound enough. Asamoah gets beat by many people, although he doesnt get beat twice cuz he can normally catch up. He also has never been tested against a world class winger.

      • Avatar
        JuventusVidal June 10, 2014 at 4:24 pm

        the only part he needs working on defensively is his positioning. give him a few games and he’ll be able to improve it. He’s tactically brilliant (which is what allowed him to switch so well from cm to lwb). He has come up against gareth bale. he made one mistake which allowed bale to score but aside from that, he completely shut bale down.

        • Avatar
          Juventin1897 June 10, 2014 at 7:44 pm

          He did not shut bale down… Asamosh cannot be a LB. He will get run over by most teams. Hes useful at LWB because of his speed. Why put him LB where is speed is less useful…

          Asamoah is best at LCM and can play wide too. He is not a defender. He can just play midfield really well. And do the job asked of him.

          Example: De rossi and Vidal could both be CB’s. They are sick defensively and COULD do very well. But why waste that offensive talent.. Same goes for Asamoah.

            Read up? I watched Zambrotta get cut down against those WC rigging, brutal, injuring motherfucking South Koreans. Then Mauro Camo came and was the future for RM/RW. Zambrotta learned to play behind him and it was history. The two of them dominated the right side for Italy. Zambrotta stuck to RB when traded. But was never the same as when he played with Camo. We saw that shit in 2006.

            Marchisio/Pogba arent backup players. Theyre starters that rotate. Bona is very highly rated, but ive never seen him play, but if he does come, he wont see much playing time because he ll be a back up.

            If you are playing champions league final and have to select a squad, anyone that is not in that 11 is a back up. If they rotate, ride bench, whatever, if they arent first for their position they are a backup.

            It is important to have quality back up. Bona wouldnt be a starter but he is a good player who is versatile and can cover multiple positions (lwb, rwb, lw, rw, cm).

            Not really. Say Pogba starts over Marchisio, it ll be because Pogba did more in recent matches and training than Marchisio, but it doesnt mean Marchisio is his back up. “Back up” Players in my eyes are those that get hardly any mins and only play because the actual starters are injured like Caceres.

    i know a lot of people will disagree with this but we should sell tevez this summer. He’s incompatible with a 4-3-3 which is what we need to play in the CL. there’s no point in having a player just for league games. also, his value is only going to go down from this point since he’s 30. After the season he had last year, we can get 20+mil for him. That could finance the sanchez move: a player who can play in both a 4-3-3 and 3-5-2.

      Peter June 11, 2014 at 3:31 pm

      I do disagree. He had a great season, selling him would be mean and stupid now. Especially when we have Vucinic and Quagliarella on bench. Even if we do change formations, keeping Tevez grants us more depth than any of those two. Tevez works like an animal. Sometimes I think he thinks he’s a battering ram as he basically runs over the defenses head on.
      Also, he is our most experienced striker, that’s pretty neat too.

      We still don’t really have wingers, only Giovinco and probably Berardi. Two won’t be enough anyway for a full season, and I don’t consider any of them first choice for CL. If we manage to get wingers for 4-3-3, I’d still keep Tevez, and use him as a sub to change formation and turn games for us.

        JuventusVidal June 11, 2014 at 3:37 pm

        we’re selling vucinic and quags. also, tevez is a hardworker but sanchez is better. He’s faster, more clinical, a better dribbler, not selfish, and he works harder than tevez. He completes almost twice as many tackles as tevez does and can play both as a winger or as a forward in a 3-5-2. also, this is tevez we’re talking about. not someone who will be happy to just sit and watch others play. He might be our most experienced striker, but he was a flop in europe. even quags did better than him.

          Peter June 11, 2014 at 4:17 pm

          Our whole team was a flop in Europe…
          I am also pessimistic about signing Sanchez. I mean I’m not sure that will ever happen. It seems obvious from the media that we want him and he want’s to play with Vidal here, but no matter how much we want him and he wants us, Barca can still say no to all our bids if they want because I can’t see us paying more than €25mil for one player, and Barca is right to ask above 30.
          “we’re selling vucinic and quags”
          I think we were also selling Iaquinta or at least trying to get rid of him.. As long as they are here we can’t really count them out.

          Sanchez can be better than Tevez in everything, but still selling our best in a time when the only thing we lack is squad depth is literally the opposite of what we should do. Who would you have on the bench if we sign Sanchez? Reducing the number of midfielders to 3 is great, because we would have there the depth we need, but what about strikers? Selling Vucinic, Quags and Tevez would mean we need 3 or 4 “decent in CL” strikers to be competitive in Europe.

            the whole team wasn’t poor in the CL. llorente did well when he played as did quags. both scored two goals and won a penalty. vucinic got injured after like 20min so he doesn’t really count and seba didn’t get much playing time. of our forwards, the only real flop was tevez. in midfield, vidal and pogba were great. the defense had a few lapses in concentration but that’s what the forwards are there for, to score. tevez didn’t score and he didn’t get an assist. nor did he win a penalty. he also missed multiple 1v1 chances. just scoring in the league doesn’t make him our best player. i’d have lukaku(if we could get him on loan w/option to buy)/a back up to llorente and gabbiadini on the bench. you’re forgetting sanchez can play in tevez’s position in 3-5-2. also, when we’re playing 4-3-3 we don’t need 5 strikers. we can have llorente, a llorente back up, sanchez, and gabbiadini. all players who can play in a 3-5-2 as forwards. then we’d need to sign one more winger. so we can have him start with llorente and sanchez in a 4-3-3

            Gio didn’t play much because we saw him last year against Chelsea. Well, we saw how easy removing him from play. Even though I agree that goals doesn’t make him our best players, the fans voted him (right?) on our official site the best, so I just went with it.
            Tevez gives the opposition a harder time, and with the lack of goals and assists he gave some mobility in our attacks with his power play. He was more useful to the team than Gio was so far.
            Lukaku: Yeah, I would like him too, but that’s not a done deal yet. He is in the world cup, he can increase his price as well as increasing the chance Chelsea decide to keep him.
            Gabbiadini: We still have to buy his 50%, and he has zero experience in Europe.
            When I said strikers for a 4-3-3 I meant the wingers too, so without wingers we really don’t need 5 Llorente like players. However, Gio, Berardi, Sanchez, and the world’s best winger would still not be enough for me simply because if one injures / gets banned we are down to 1 back up.

            Well that’s what a backup is there for. If the starter gets injured or banned, you have him there. It doesnt have to be lukaku. I just put him there since we are being linked with him and he’d be a great signing.

      we are going to field a 3-5-2 more than a 4-3-3. Conte is also smart, and will use whatever formation gets the best out of his players, which means he could use a 4-3-1-2 and play Tevez behind the forwards, where he would work, or as one of the 2 up front. In a 4-3-3, Tevez could be used as the CF or LWF. Something like Sanchez/Berardi-Tevez-Sanchez/Berardi could work, too.

        Tevez as a false 9 doesnt work since since he drops far too deep and we play a ton of crosses and tevez is too short. Tevez as a winger hasnt worked for Argentina, man city, or us either in the few games we’ve played him as a winger. Also, we wouldnt play a 4-3-1-2 since it has the exact same problem that the 3-5-2 has. We would use 3-5-2 more but you’ve got sanchez who can replace tevez in the 3-5-2 and also be able to play in a 4-3-3

    Of,h David’s would end up getting carded in a charity match.. On another note Seedorf got a hatrick, maybe if he’d played himself his time in charge at milan may have ended better
