Juventus believe in Gabbiadini

The agent of Manolo Gabbiadini has praised Juventus for showing belief in the Italian Under-21 international.

The champions have signed a half share in the player after handing over €5.5m to Atalanta. They then decided to send him on loan to Bologna.

“Juventus certainly carried out an important operation and they courageously invested an important amount of money for him,” Silvio Pagliari noted.

“But he is a player whose value is set to rise over the course of the next few years.”

The representative also accepted that loaning the centre-forward out was the wisest move for all parties.

“It’s always an honour to be signed by Juventus, but sending him to Bologna seems like the best option on paper,” he argued.

“He should have a bit more space in their first team plans, but it will be the football pitch that will decide that.”

Gabbiadini, born in November 1991, actually made his full international debut against England this month.
