Juventus Target Steals the Show in Copa Libertadores

Juventus have been shaky on the wings as long as one can remember, and with just three pure fullbacks – Alex Sandro, Danilo, and Mattia De Sciglio, it is time for reinforcements to arrive in that position. Unsurprisingly, the Bianconeri management has already identified the player they wish to lure to Turin, Valentin Barco.

As relayed by Calciomercato, the Boca Juniors regularly caught the attention of the Old Lady’s scouts, not to mention his recent display in a fiery clash against Deportivo Pereira in the Copa Libertadores.

Boca ran out 2-1 winners in remarkable fashion, thanks to the winner by Alan Varela in the 99th minute after Luis Advincula equalized ten minutes earlier, canceling the opener that arrived in the 75th minute by Jimer Mejia.

However, it was 18-year-old Barco who stood out with a tour de force performance – most duels won (21), most tackles (6), most recoveries (13), most successful dribbles (4) and conceded most fouls (8). He also provided the match-winning assist.

Juventus will reportedly take heed of the Argentine starlet’s display that impressed La Bombonera. His drastic growth will continue to be taken into account, with his contract set to expire in December 2024.
