Serie B side Lanciano have claimed that they will sign Nicola Leali – but only after Juventus’ Week 1 game against Parma.
The teenage goalkeeper moved to Turin this summer from Brescia, but he will spend the campaign on loan in order to get regular playing time.
“Gigi Buffon is injured so Leali will be included in the squad for Juve’s game this weekend,” Lanciano sporting director Luca Leone stated.
“That means we won’t have the boy for the game against Juve Stabia, but he’ll be defending our goal in Week 2.
“We already have an agreement with Juventus and, next week, Leali will be ours.”
