Tacchinardi tells Juventus to sell young star for the right offer

January 4, 2022 - 5:15 pm

After 18 months of inconsistent displays, Dejan Kulusevski’s future in Turin is far from certain.

The Bianconeri bought the Swede from Atalanta back when Fabio Paratici identified him as one of the stars of the future.

However, the 21-year-old is yet to find his groove at the club. He has been deployed by Andrea Pirlo and Max Allegri in various playing roles and is often overlooked in the pecking order.

Therefore, the young man’s name is now on the chopping block, and one former Juventus player wouldn’t object his departure.

Alessio Tacchinardi believes that the Old Lady would be wise to let Kulusevski leave, but only if the right offer arrives.

The retired winger believes that the Sweden international has thus far failed to make a leap on the mental level, despite his undeniable potential.

“For an offer of 35 millions, I would allow Kulusevski to go and then focus on other players,” said the former Bianconeri star in an interview with TMW via ilBianconero.

“Dejan has not yet made the mental qualitative leap. He is missing something character-wise. A bit like Morata.

If it was me at the helm, I’d think about selling him. He’s a player of enormous potential but needs to be mentally stronger,” concluded Tacchinardi.

    Yeah I agree with you. He needs a mental leap. His body language attimes is very discouraging.

    I completely agree with Alessio. Kulusevski has a lot of talent, but I think he has always lacked confidence and doesn’t look mentally strong enough to cope with the pressure of the Juventus shirt. He is a very instinctive player, but when he has time he can not seem to make his mind up and often makes the wrong decision. He never looks happy either, especially when he has scored or made an assist. Juventus are not in a position to wait for players to realise their potential, unfortunately even the younger players. Allegri needs strong characters, that’s what his success in Italy has been built on at both Milan & Juventus, and players who can embrace the pressure and thrive. There are many players who are not up to standard and until they are moved on, nothing will come easy for us. We will return to the top in Italy but our transfer dealings, both in and out, from now on will determine how long it takes.
