Juventus look to Cristian Romero

January 3, 2019

Juventus could turn their attention to Cristiano Romero this summer as they look to revitalise their defence.

With Medhi Benatia looking to leave the club and Andrea Barzagli in the last year of his contract, the Bianconeri may be looking to strengthen the back line.

The Bianconeri are among the favourites for the Champions League this season, according to various betting websites, along with Manchester City and Barcelona as they bid to win the trophy that’s eluded them since 1996.

Part of the clubs policy has been to reinvest in the squad every few years and with Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci in the twilight of their careers, Juve are reportedly looking at young centre-backs for the future.

Gazzetta Dello Sport report that Genoa defender Cristian Romero is a top target for the Bianconeri this summer but they face competition from Inter Milan among others.

The report suggests that Romero prefers a move to Turin and Juventus are prepared to sign him and send him back on loan for anywhere up to 18 months in an effort to get more first team experience.
