Tardelli: Falcao the answer for Juve

Juventus legend Marco Tardelli has commented on who the club should focus on signing in the January transfer window.

The 58-year-old, who is currently Republic of Ireland assistant Coach has claimed that the Bianconeri should attempt to sign Atletico Madrid striker Falcao during the winter break.

“I would love Juve to sign Falcao,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport. “He would be the logical answer to the striker question.

“But, for the figures being bandied around [€60m], it would be virtually impossible.

“So in that case, I think Carlos Tevez or Sergio Aguero would be good. South Americans suit Italy well and they would both fit at Juve.

“Personally, I think Tevez would be perfect.”

He then commented on Antonio Conte's current squad, singling out Sebastian Giovinco and Andrea Pirlo for special praise.

“I've often criticised Giovinco, but I have to take that back now,” he said. “He's doing really well, creating space for his teammates.

“Pirlo is someone the whole world wants. He cannot be replaced at Juve – like Michel Platini.

“His game means he will still be playing at the very highest level for years to come.”
