Juve door opens for Masiello

Bari's relegation and Juventus' proposed appointment of Antonio Conte may see Andrea Masiello move to Turin.

The southern outfit are expected to lose their most influential players after dropping down to Serie B and Masiello is one individual who will be cashed in on.

The defender has been associated with both Parma and Genoa, but Juventus could be a possible destination.

Conte is expected to take over from Gigi Del Neri as Juve boss at the end of the season and he knows Masiello well.

The two worked together in Bari's 2008-09 promotion success, with the right-back making 39 appearances that term.

The 25-year-old is valued at €4m and has actually already played for the Old Lady in the past, albeit making one Serie A appearance in the 2004-05 campaign.

Masiello has also spent time at Lucchese, Avellino, Siena and Genoa.
