Official: Mattiello joins Cagliari

Cagliari have signed Atalanta full-back Federico Mattiello on loan with an option to buy.

The deal was confirmed in a statement on Cagliari’s official website.

Mattiello came through Juventus’ youth academy and represented Italy at various youth levels.

However, injuries have plagued the early part of the 23-year-old’s career and he played just 19 times for Bologna during a loan spell last season.

Capable of playing on either side of defence or midfield, he is the second new face in Sardinia this summer after Sebastian Walukiewicz.

It now remains to be seen whether Atalanta will pursue their interest in Rossoblu attacker Joao Pedro.
