Youngster Agent Slams Juventus But Departure Isn’t Sure

Despite agreeing to an extension earlier in the summer, Nicolò Fagioli could leave Juventus on loan before deadline day. While Fabio Miretti and Nicolò Rovella saw minutes in the first three matches, he was unused in the early going.

His agent Andrea D’Amico hinted at an imminent transfer talking to Rai’s radio how Calcio Totale (via TuttoSport).

“He missed the most recent game due to a minor muscular injury. I am biased, but, in my mind, the strength of a coach lies in investing on youngsters and exploiting the resources at your disposal. The Bianconeri’s transfer market has been affected by exits they hoped to complete but couldn’t. The strategy clearly differs whether or not you sell Arthur, Adrien Rabiot, and Weston McKennie.

The representative voiced his regret for Fagioli possibly departing Juventus.

“If you can’t finalize exits, then you have to sacrifice youngsters. The wish was that this new management would valorize them, since they have shown well when given the opportunity. We hoped to stay put, but the financial elements matter in football. It’s easier to move prospects or leave them on the bench rather than excluding those that earn €5/6M per year.”

Our Take on Fagioli and Juventus

The agent was pretty definitive, but he may not be correct in the end. The Old Lady might keep almost all their current options if they don’t sanction a deal for Leandro Paredes, which is looking increasingly difficult. There’s a non-zero chance that will turn out to be serendipitous. Miretti has been great early on, and Fagioli has the potential to add some oomph to their struggling midfield.
