Official: Luca Pellegrini joins Cagliari

Cagliari have officially signed Luca Pellegrini on loan from Juventus and announced the news via a curious viral video, including Amazon assistant Alexa.

It is a return to Sardinia for the left-back, who had been on loan from Roma in January-June 2019, making 12 competitive appearances, with one assist.

Roma sold the 20-year-old to Juventus for €22m as part of the Leonardo Spinazzola deal.

He has now been sent back to the Sardegna Arena on a dry loan – without an option to buy – until June 2020.

Cagliari announced the signing via a strange video on their social media channels, which showed a local man talking to his Alexa unit.

After asking about the weather in Cagliari and the latest news on the football club, Alexa added the breaking news that Luca Pellegrini had signed for the Rossoblu.
