Juventus consider ‘keeper Rubinho

Juventus are pondering the capture of free agent Rubinho to become their third-choice goalkeeper of the campaign.

The Brazilian, who has also played for Genoa, Livorno and Torino, is available for nothing after he rescinded his contract at Palermo in December.

The 30-year-old could be acquired to act as back-up for Gigi Buffon and Marco Storari, given that teenager Nicola Leali is set to join Lanciano on loan.

Rubinho has already undergone a few medical tests in Turin, even if the Scudetto holders are still making a decision on who to bring in.

Parma’s Nicola Pavarini and Michele Arcari of Brescia are other possibilities.
