Juventus start search for fresh talent in Brazil

Italian newspaper Tuttosport claims Juventus are planning a big scouting trip in Brazil that would help them gain a firm foothold in the South American market.

Club scout Galileo Ferraris is set to embark on a journey to Brazil, with sporting director Fabio Paratici set to join him in November.

Rather than finding players who can slot right into the starting line-up, the Bianconeri plan to scout talented footballers whose price could rise a great deal over the next few years.

Initially the focus will be on Porto Alegre, given that both Internacional and Gremio have a plethora of talent among their ranks.

Juventus already have excellent relationship with Internacional, established when the two clubs negotiated the sale of Leandro Damiao.

The Old Lady have not yet given up on the Brazil international, but the €30 million asking price is proving to be a problem.

As far as the youngsters that Juventus will pay attention to are concerned, Otavio Edmilson, Rafael Pernao, Rodrigo Cunha Dourado, Maurides and Mike are being mentioned.
