Italian champions Juventus have secured the signing of Sassuolo striker Domenico Berardi, writes Il Corriere dello Sport.
The Old Lady have decided to exercise the option to buy the striker back from Neroverdi for €25 million and guard off interest from other suitors such as Barcelona, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Inter Milan and AC Milan, who were all believed to be closely monitoring the Italian striker.
Berardi is now on his way to fulfil his destiny and play for the club he had been first contacted by at the age of 12.
The talented striker even joined Juventus in September 2013 when it was confirmed that Berardi has joined the club on a co-ownership deal with Sassuolo. Berardi remained with Neroverdi and went on to play 122 Serie A matches for the club and score 48 goals in the process.
Domenico Berardi’s impressive displays have helped Serie A minnows climb to seventh in league table, with the 21-year-old forward scoring six goals in 24 appearances this term.
The imminent arrival of Domenico Berardi is likely to signal the club’s decision to sell one or more of their available strikers.
Juventus have Simone Zaza, Mario Mandzukic, Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata at disposal in attack and it is firmly believed that some of them will change clubs during summer transfer market.
