Italian journalist Francesco Repice admits Juve have done well in this summer transfer window but he believes they shouldn’t have sold Cristian Romero and Merih Demiral.
Both defenders left the club for Atalanta, with the former now playing for Tottenham in England.
They were good players when they were at Juve, but the Bianconeri had a Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini pairing that was hard for anyone to break.
This caused both defenders to leave and they are thriving away from the club.
Juve have lost Chiellini and Matthijs de Ligt in this transfer window. They secured the signing of Federico Gatti in January, and they added Gleison Bremer to the squad a few days ago.
These defenders should replace the other two, but Repice says Juve should have kept Demiral and Romero.
Tuttojuve quotes him saying: “They lost important players, it’s true, Demiral and Romero were strong and would have been useful now in defense. I don’t know who is stronger between Bremer and Demiral. Those two have been sold too lightly.
Juve FC says
Demiral and Romero were very good defenders, but there was no place for them in our team, and they had to leave.
Both are doing well at their current clubs, and we should be happy with the money we got from selling them.
Hopefully our current options will help us earn trophies at the end of this campaign.
