Young midfielder Nicolo Fagioli is hopeful of returning to Juventus next season and starring for the Bianconeri after helping Cremonese earn promotion to Serie A.
Fagioli played twice for Andrea Pirlo last season before earning a loan move away in the summer, joining Cremonese. The Italian then contributed to ten Serie B goals as the Grigiorossi secured automatic promotion to Serie A on the final day of the season.
Fagioli’s form has rightly generated a lot of buzz among Juventus supporters, but the club’s distinct inability to facilitate the development and progression of homegrown talent at a senior level has some fearing that the 20-year-old midfielder could slip through their fingers.
The player, though, is hopeful of returning to Turin and featuring for Juventus next season.
Nicolo Fagioli idolises Luka Modric & dreams of becoming Juventus’ version of the Croatian superstar
Fagioli has shown in Serie B that he’s more than capable of playing at a higher level, and some believe that he’s the crown jewel in an incredibly talented crop of Bianconeri youngsters.
Recently, we’ve seen teenager Fabio Miretti start back-to-back games for the Bianconeri and Fagioli said in an interview with Tuttosport that the chances given to Miretti are a promising sign for Juve’s fellow youngsters.
“At Juventus, it’s not easy to find a place. But seeing Miretti playing as a starter is a good sign for all of us,” he said.
The youngster added that he would first enjoy the “victory” with Cremonese before considering his future in the summer. Fagioli is certainly good enough to earn minutes in the Juventus first team next season, but the Bianconeri could opt to loan him out again, perhaps to Cremonese once more.
Fagioli, though, admitted that he “dreams” of returning to Juventus and he has high ambitions for himself. He idolises Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric and is hopeful of becoming Juve’s version of the Croatian superstar.
The young Italian certainly boasts Modric’s subtle versatility, passing range, savvy vision and ability to glide beyond opponents with the ball.
