Juventus Could Make Yet Another Attempt to Sign Berardi

The never-ending saga between Juventus and Domenico Berardi could have another chapter this summer. The Bianconeri reached out to the player to see whether he’d be interested in joining, receiving a resounding yes, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

At this stage, the two clubs haven’t talked yet. The Old Lady tried to get him a few times in the past, including last summer. However, they ultimately never met Sassuolo’s hefty demands. His side’s relegation and his long-term injury drastically reduced his price tag. Still, the Neroverdi won’t simply give him away.

If Juventus found an opening, they could propose a season-long loan with an obligation to buy plus one of their several youngsters to sign Berardi at an affordable price. His €3M salary would be a big problem in Serie B. Although Sassuolo might want to keep him to boost their chances of returning to the top flight quickly.

The winger tore his Achilles tendon in March and is expected to be on the shelf until November or December. Despite a few injuries, he recorded 9 goals and 3 assists in 17 matches in 2023/2024.

Our Take on Juventus and Berardi

It’s surely the right window to get him for cheap given the circumstances. Things are going in the wrong direction with Federico Chiesa, and pairing up a prodigy with a proven veteran would be the ideal way to go. The cynical move would be to wait until January until he’s healed and assess where Sassuolo’s season is headed and possibly exploit that.
