Sampdoria President: ‘Patrik Schick is going to Juventus’

June 1, 2017 - 2:33 pm

Sampdoria President Massimo Ferrero has confirmed that 21-year-old striker Patrik Schick is ‘going to Juventus’.

Pavel Nedved compared the young Czech striker to Zlatan Ibrahimovic when he arrived in Turin and it seems Schick could emulate the Swedish striker by joining Juventus this summer.

“He’s going to Juventus,” Ferrero told Pagine Romaniste.

“Roma asked for him, but they don’t have the money. Tell President James Pallotta to look for money, without money there’s no song to sing.”

Schick has been in fine form for Sampdoria this season, notching up 11 goals, largely in substitute appearances from the bench. It’s not yet clear whether the striker will remain at Sampdoria for next season or if he’ll head to Juventus immediately.

    Brilliant news to augment Mario’s recent extension. I believe Sami has also confirmed he is to remain with the club until 2019. Add that to Dybala’s new contract earlier this year and the captures of both Orsolini and Caldara…Beppe. Fabio and the club continue to operate in a superb, efficient, intelligent manner, providing a stable balance between present and future focus.

    We have certainly missed a natural back-up for Higuain, and no doubt Max will tinker with Schick to become more versatile than merely a CF. He as the feet to do well on the flank as well as through the middle. Once some meat has been added to his bones, we might well see a player blossoming with enough dedication to the cause and talent to become a star in our colours.

      Shick has tremendous potential, I wouldn’t mind if we actually left him on loan at sampadoria for another year to gain more experience or even loaned him out to Atlanta since they play in Europe and he will get even more playing time. I’ve never seen a big man that young with that good of footwork, just outstanding.

        Similar thoughts here, Jas…but at the same time we have no player in the squad who can replace Higuain in our favoured system. Which is very hard working, roaming, leading the line, connecting the play, brimming with hustle and bustle and a strong threat on goal. Mandzukic is not mobile enough, as a CF he slows everything down.

        We need a CF. Yet as we both worry, if Schick does come, he wont play regularly unless Gonzalo is injured. Or Max will offer him time out wide. Is that for the best of his development? Probably not, though it is very hard to gauge the value of playing with the Juve squad. How much do young players learn from the veterans and experienced world class players in training?

    OT: Orsolini with another goal, Italy won 2:1 against France
