The agent of Nicola Leali insists that Juventus have yet to make a decision on what to do with their new signing for 2012-13.
The Brescia goalkeeper, 19, had his medical in Turin on Tuesday and is now just an official announcement away from becoming a Bianconero.
“The boy is very happy,” representative Graziano Battistini stated. “But we’ll have to wait a little while longer for it to be official.
“The best thing for a youngster is to play and now the club will have to decide the possibility of sending him out on loan to mature.
“Other interest? Sporting Lisbon were close to his signing, but it is hard to compete when a side like Juventus come along.”
Juventus’ first choice in Turin for next season will be Gigi Buffon and he’ll be backed up by Marco Storari.
Leali, should he remain, could be third in the pecking order.
