€22m Monaco bid for Berardi rejected

Juventus rejected a €22m Monaco offer for teenage striker Domenico Berardi, who is currently at Sassuolo.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the 19-year-old forward was the subject of a spectacular swoop by French side Monaco in June.

The cost of the bid was said to be €22m, but the Bianconeri turned it down.

Berardi remains in a co-ownership deal between Juve and Sassuolo, but have already agreed to sell the remaining 50 per cent to the Turin giants for €14m at the end of the season.

This will allow Berardi to continue playing regularly in Serie A at Sassuolo before making the step up to Juventus.
