Report reveals the two Juventus sacrifices prior to Paredes signing

August 25, 2022 - 3:00 pm

During the last 24 hours or so, Juventus have registered a significant breakthrough on the Leandro Paredes front. Perhaps prompted by their recent hollow display against Sampdoria, the management realized the dire need for a genuine architect in the middle of the park.

But as we all know, the transfer market gods give with one hand and take with the other. While the Bianconeri were hoping to make room for the Argentine’s arrival by offloading the likes of Adrien Rabiot and Arthur Melo, that track reached a dead end.

Therefore, Federico Cherubini have identified another two midfielders as sacrifices prior to the arrival of the Paris Saint Germain player. And here’s a clue: They share the same first name.

According to il Corriere dello Sport via TuttoJuve, Nicolò Rovella and Nicolò Fagioli will both leave Juventus on loan to make way for Paredes.

Both players are 21, and have just returned from loan spells with Genoa and Cremonese respectively.

Juve FC say

Well, this certainly isn’t the news that the Bianconeri fans were hoping to read. Most of us had high hopes for the duo.

Although their departures should be temporary, it’s a shame to see promising talent heading towards the exit door at a time when the middle of the park is filled with uninspiring, overpaid flops.

Nonetheless, Fabio Miretti appears to be staying put, which serves as a consolation.

    It’s ok , They’ll go and learn and will comeback
    Rabiot , Arthur and Mckennie will leave when the course of their contract runs over anyway. up until then seeing Paredes , Locateli, Pogba and Miretti in midfield isn’t that bad . Lets hope for the best

    NO, NO, NO……….it is bad enough to sacrifice FAGIOLI, but ROVELLA as well? Totally insane. IMHO all THREE should stay, at least till JANUARY.

      For what? To sit on the bench. They need to play to get better. Not sit and watch. They should play them as registas. I don’t think this is just Allegri. This team has a problem with young Italians playing in an ITALIAN LEAGUE!!!!

        it`s allegri, you saw the vs samp midfield, Lord Octagon has a plan with rabiot a cert. Thank God these players will come back hopefully when he`s gone. … We can have a great midfield that`s if Miretti doesn`t put a transfer request in by being thrown under the bus so many times.

    The Juventus FC midfield should include LOCATELLI, ROVELLA, FAGIOLI, MIRETTI, POGBA ( injured) MCKENNIE and possibly ZAKARIA.

    And JUVENTUS should sign PARTEDES asap.

    RABIOT and ARTUR are surplus to requirements.

    Hopefully ‘Raviolt'(pun eh) can be less injury prone so it gets sidelined a bit?

    rabiot staying, and assured playing time by allegri, has cost the youngsters. maybe it`s better for them to be properly coached anyway.

      And that is why I’d let them go. You hit the nail on the head with being properly coached. As a man manager allegri seems to be good at that. But as a tactician. He’s completely clueless. This current juve side needs a tactician. We don’t have world beating players, which he benefited from, and the weakness of the league, at that time, during the scudetto run.
