Juve get their hands on Leali

Juventus have taken steps to eventually replace Gigi Buffon by reportedly doing a deal for teenage goalkeeper Nicola Leali.

Whispers in Italy on Friday are suggesting that the Old Lady have beaten a host of clubs to the Brescia sensation.

Leali, born in 1993, has been tracked by Atletico Madrid, Sporting Lisbon and Barcelona over the last year.

According to the transfer rumour mill, Juve have agreed to pay the Lombard outfit €5m for the custodian.

Leali will reportedly move to Turin at the end of the season.

Buffon, now 33, joined La Vecchia Signora in 2001 after they paid Parma a massive £33m for his signature.
