Five Serie A Players That Juventus Sold Too Soon

Last summer, Cristian Romero’s loan move from Juventus to Atalanta made very little noise in the news. After all, a young but unproven prospect leaving a top team due to a lack of space is nothing new in calcio.

Fast forward to the summer of 2021, and the Argentine is suddenly one of the most exciting center backs in the game on the heels of a brilliant season with both club and country.

La Dea are set to score a bargain by buying the outrights of the best Serie A defender in 2020-21 for just 16 millions euros.  Gian Piero Gasperini’s side will then decide whether to maintain his services for the next campaign, or sell him for a significant profit – with Fabio Paratici’s Tottenham hot on his trail.

Unfortunately for Juventus fans, seeing their former players shine elsewhere is a deja vu, and here are the Top five players who were sold by the club too soon in the last ten years.

5- Ciro Immobile

Before settling at Lazio, the striker traveled between several clubs and countries, making it hard to recall the fact that he was once upon a time the jewel of Juve’s Primavera.

The former Torino and Dortmund man came out of age at a time when the Bianconeri were mainly focused on reinforcing their squad during the early years of their winning dynasty, and thus, they were searching for well-established stars for the attack – likes of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente – rather than relying on youth team products.

Although it took the Euro 2020 winner some time to prove his worth, but winning the European Golden Shoe shows that he’s a player of the highest caliber.

4- Leonardo Spinazzola

Before surging to the scene as a part of Gasperini’s early years at Atalanta, the wing-back was mostly a forgotten name in Turin.

Nonetheless, he came back to Juventus following his loan spell at Bergamo, and despite missing the first part of the 2018/19 campaign with an injury, he proved to be a solid option on the left later in the season.

And yet, the management decided to trade his services with young Roma prospect, Luca Pellegrini. Following Spinazzola’s great displays at Euro 2020, you don’t need us to tell you which club got the best deal in the exchange.

3- Cristian Romero

We already mentioned why Juventus must be regretting the loss of the young Argentine. But here’s the awkward part, the Oribici could replace Romero with yet another young defender who’s unable to find enough space in Turin.

Will Merih Demiral join the list?

2- Kingsley Coman

In 2014, Juventus made another masterful piece of business by signing Coman as a free agent after seeing his PSG contact expire.

But for one reason or another, the French international was sold to Bayern Munich for just 20 million euros a year later.

Even though he had his ups and downs over the years, the winger’s vast talent shouldn’t be doubted, and scoring the winner in the 2020 Champions League final remains his signature moment.

1- Moise Kean

In 2019, a teenager became the main attraction in a Juventus side that contained the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic.

Following his fabulous run, the management inexplicably sold the young striker to Everton (perhaps on the advice of Maurizio Sarri who took over that summer).

the Italian youngster impressed last season during his loan spell at PSG, and the Bianconeri are still trying to rectify their mistake by bringing him back , which proves that this untimely sale remains their biggest market regret in the last few years.
