Italian daily newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport has revealed that Monaco attempted to recruit Juventus starlet Domenico Berardi some month ago.
The Principality club submitted an official proposal worth no less than €22 million, but the Bianconeri and Sassuolo, who currently co-own the player, rejected the offer.
Namely, Juventus have an agreement to purchase the remaining half of the forward’s contract for €15 million, and they have no plans to cash in on their starlet.
Domenico Berardi, 19, first helped Sassuolo gain promotion to the elite division by scoring 11 goals in 37 league outings before impressing in his first ever Serie A campaign.
The youngster managed no less than 16 goals in 29 league matches last term, which led to him being considered for a place in Italy’s World Cup squad.
As things stand now, Berardi will remain at Sassuolo for another season, before he attempts to prove his worth in Turin.
