The 21-year-old Juventus star is only one of three Juventus players on the planet with an international contract with a significant amount of potential, but with Juve set to miss out on Champions League football next season, he’s in a great position to make a name for himself.
He has been touted as the successor to Gianluigi Buffon, but he’s also just the latest to join the growing list of Juve stars to make the move to Europe.
The story of Antonio Conte’s first signing in Italy is as fascinating as the player himself.
Born in Calabria in 1988, Conte has been playing for AC Milan since 2001, and has been capped over 100 times for Italy.
He has scored eight goals in his career, including five in the last eight Serie A games against Bologna.
Conte is a versatile footballer who can play on the right wing or at the heart of midfield.
He’s also a good passer, and can use his feet to create chances.
His ability to play on both wings was on display against Boca Juniors in the Serie A last season, and he also made his debut for his country against Argentina at the World Cup.
In the last few years, Conseco has scored 14 goals in 26 games for the Bianconeri.
A big fan of Conte and his style of football, Juventus defender Dani Alves has spoken about the player’s future at the club, and while he won’t be signing with Juves, he is impressed with his current form.
“I’ve known him for a while and have always been impressed with the quality of his game.
He is a great young man and I’m sure he will develop a great future with Juvi,” said the Brazilian.
Alves, who has scored a goal for Juventus in every game since joining the club in 2012, believes the midfielder has the ability to make an impact at Juventus.
It’s not just the goals Conte is scoring, though.
According to Juventus’ official website, Consecetino has scored seven goals in 13 games, and his best goal came in the 2-0 win against Brugge in the Champions League last season.
For all of his ability and versatility, Conca is still a player who has to make his name in Italy.
He’ll have to make it on the pitch, though, and that means making the transition from the Bolognese to the Serie B. If Conte can play well in Italy and then prove his worth in the big-spending Serie A, he could end up at Juventus next season.
