Giandonato 'has many offers'

Juventus talent Manuel Giandonato's price-tag rose after his sensational goal against Manchester United. “He has many offers.”

The 19-year-old youth team starlet curled a great free kick during the 2-1 victory at Old Trafford last night, a testimonial for Gary Neville.

“I am very happy for Manuel, but not remotely surprised,” agent Silvio Pagliari told TMW.

“I know his quality well and that free kick is part of his repertoire. I'm glad he showed his skills in such an important stadium, as he already proved his character every time he was called upon this season in Serie A or the Europa League.

“As for his future, I already spoke with Beppe Marotta and Fabio Paratici a few days ago.

“Soon we will come back together to evaluate the best option, seeing as he has many offers.”

The most likely alternatives are loans to Serie A sides Siena or Fiorentina.

With no European football, it would be very difficult for Giandonato to get regular playing time at Juventus next season.
