Juventus after not so impressively last season, are looking for some major reinforcement this season. Long-time servant Paulo Dybala has bid his farewell, Pogba is on his way back home but the club still misses European glory.
Massimiliano Allegri last season recovered his team very well from a very bad start. The beginning of their campaign came under heavy criticism due to their previous season in which they narrowly escaped the Europa League by finishing fourth.
Juventus has some quality players but at certain positions, they’ve under-performing players. Some players need to leave in order to make a place for fresh talent. One of the players is Rolando Mandragora who since joining Juve back in 2016 but has mostly represented other clubs on loan.
He had a brief time in Genoa, Crotone, and Udinese but it was at Torino where his true potential were on display.
Juventus forgotten player: Rolando Mandragora
Last season Rolando represented Torino on loan where he really impressed but the club failed to sign the Italian defensive midfielder permanently. The transfer window is active, and Juventus has opened doors for other suitors to sign Rolando Mandragora.
Rolando with Juventus has mostly spent time on the bench but it was his loan spell at Udinese where he lived up to standards. With Udinese, he was not only being called up for first-team but was getting regular game time.
Although Torino and Udinese may not have made a move for him but Fiorentina may cash in.
Fiorentina has already lost two of their best talents to Juventus i.e., Federico Chiesa and Dusan Vlahovic. They finished 7th last season but have secured the conference league spot and they need to perform well to keep the momentum going. They’ve been closely following a set of players and Rolando Mandragora is one of them.
At Juventus Mandragora has struggled in past and will struggle as he’s not in Allegri’s plans. He’s at the peak age of his career and needs to find a new home to resurrect his career.
If La Viola makes a move for the player, then he’ll cost between €10-12 million. Allowing him to leave is the best for both parties. Although Torino can still very well make a move and both the offers looks impressive. Regular game time to sharpen his defensive abilities should be his priority at all times.
