Bronzetti predicts Juve era

FIFA agent and transfer expert Ernesto Bronzetti tells Juventus to “hurry up” for Robin Van Persie and predicts a new winning era in Turin.

“This will be the start of a winning era for Juventus. The other top clubs should prepare themselves to fight for second and third place, because for a while it’ll be all Juve,” Bronzetti told Tuttosport.

“Trust me, Juve are destined to dominate for the next few days. They are the club with the best organisation who are truly prepared for the future. They have a stadium that is beginning to provide income, put their hands on the best young players, have solid foundations, a great Coach and directors up to the task.

“The way I see it, this side is even stronger than it was under Antonio Giraudo and Luciano Moggi.”

This week Kwadwo Asamoah and Mauricio Isla underwent medicals to complete the moves from Udinese, while there is also a striker on the horizon.

“Juventus need a great hitman and whether it’s Van Persie, Luis Suarez or Gonzalo Higuain, the competition will be fierce.

“The Bianconeri have to get their timing right. If they hurry up, then they can anticipate Manchester City, who need to sell before they can buy. The sheiks are rich, but not stupid, as they’ve seen what happens with too many forwards in the squad.”

Arsenal star Van Persie has been the hot favourite for the role, but Bronzetti suggests Higuain should be considered too.

“I’d advise Juventus to keep an eye on Higuain. Jose Mourinho doesn’t want to let him go from Real Madrid, but it depends on what the lad thinks and the club strategy.

“The Spanish clubs have to face up to the economic crisis in their country. If Juve pushed a little more, they might realise Higuain isn’t really off the market. Of course it takes more money, but Higuain is four years younger than Van Persie and earns half his wages...”
