Juventus shortage of full-backs

Juventus have barely any available full-backs against SPAL this weekend, as Alex Sandro has flown to Brazil on compassionate leave.

The Bianconeri were already dealing with a huge injury crisis that ruled out Mattia De Sciglio, Danilo, Douglas Costa, Marko Pjaca and Giorgio Chiellini.

Alex Sandro has now been given permission to fly back to Brazil following the tragic death of his father.

Juan Cuadrado has been used so far as a makeshift right-back, but even that might not be enough to fill the gaps.

Italy: Pellegrini in, Kean & Zaniolo out

Italy have called up Luca Pellegrini and Stephan El Shaarawy for September’s Euro 2020 qualifiers, but Cristiano Biraghi, Moise Kean and Nicolo Zaniolo are out.

Pellegrini is rewarded for his breakout few months on loan at Cagliari, which earned him a permanent transfer to Juventus.

There is also a place for El Shaarawy, despite the winger’s decision to leave Europe for Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua earlier in the summer.

However, Biraghi is left out just a day after he completed a return to Inter.

Pellegrini: Cagliari 'ideal' for me

Luca Pellegrini believes Cagliari are the ‘ideal’ team for him at this stage of his career after returning from Juventus.

Pellegrini moved to Juve from Roma earlier in the summer but will spend the upcoming season back at Cagliari, where he ended the previous campaign.

“We all came together and I made the decision to continue playing for Cagliari, who are the ideal club for me right now. It’s hard to find a better one,” explained the Italy Under-20 left-back at his official unveiling.

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.

The Italy Under-21 international made the move to Turin as part of the deal that brought Leonardo Spinazzola to the Stadio Olimpico.

He spent the last six months of the 2018-19 season on loan at Cagliari and could well be back there again, this time via Juve.

Talks are believed to be at an advanced stage and Tuttomercatoweb trust a move is imminent.

Pellegrini to re-join Cagliari

Juventus left-back Luca Pellegrini is all set to re-join Cagliari on a season-long loan.

Sky Sport Italia, Calciomercato.com and Goal.com’s Romeo Agresti all report a deal will be signed off on Monday.

Once that is done, Pellegrini can undergo a medical and sign his contract with Cagliari.

However, the sources stress there is no option to buy as Juve only brought in the 20-year-old from Roma last month and rate him highly.

Juve: Pellegrini in Cagliari return?

Juventus left-back Luca Pellegrini is reportedly closing in on a season-long return to Cagliari.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Juve want to loan out Pellegrini [pictured, right] so his development can continue to be aided with first-team football.

With that in mind, the website claims an agreement has already been reached between the Bianconeri and Cagliari over a dry loan, although SPAL could make a late move if Mohamed Fares leaves.

The 20-year-old recently swapped clubs with Leonardo Spinazzola, who joined Roma in part exchange.
