    Yeah, I think we might create a role between DoF and Head scout, something like having say in players transfers but Woodward doing the negotiations. I mean like not 100% control over transfers but having bigger say in player transfers.

    Might be completely wrong but I don't see the reason to leave Juventus unless we create bigger position for him.

    And its a funny situation because everyone in Italy hates them. They are like the Tywin Lannister of the Serie A ie they are brutally effective, extremely rich and everyone ends up selling players to them despite wishing they could sell them to other clubs instead. Fiorentina, Napoli and Inter have a long history with them.

    TBF the club Id wish we give a closer look at is Atalanta. They are like a youth talent generation machine at the moment

    I'm hoping he's here just as a scout and not director of football, really not a fan of that role.

    A bigger position, higher salary and a new challenge... these are professionals, after all.

    I'd imagine if he was DoF it would be announced as such. Seems more like a chief scout to me.

    Which is a bit unfair because they started from scratch after Calciopoli and built the most dominant position ever in Italian football in just seven years, the first one being a flop and the second kickstarted by the very casual appointment of Conte as a coach. Brutal truth is they are geniuses, all the other being flawed or parochial clowns. EDIT: and after seven years they are a top 5 european club on the pitch again while managing half the budget of their main competitors

    Ah got ya. I'm curious to see what his actual role will be, shouldn't take long until we officially announce it (Tuesday?).

    I agree. There again, success brings jealousy. It happened to us during SAF's time too.

    It isn't official yet, also Di Marzio reported "The bianconeri's scouting manager will join Manchester United where he'll have a significant role in picking players: he'll be a point of reference for scouting and recruiting." which sounds more than just chief scout.

    Juventus held an interest in Fabinho, hopefully that was due to Ribalta and he can convince Jose of him too.

    I think it's fair to say, this isn't a successful post, successful.

    Forgot a white text or you are simply retarded? Knowing your history, it's probably the latter.

    I hope he takes a look at the potential deals for Dier, Matic and Perisic and tells the club to walk away.

    Aside from Morata, who has he supposedly signed for Juventus in the past?

    I've suspected for a long while he isn't a United fan. There is just no way.

    How sad is it that I find this a partial relief at the lack of signings thus far. Lol is this even official can't see it on the official site?

    Can you imagine Howard Nurse going to Turin?

    Howard: "Have United signed that striker of yours?"
    Turin: "Well they showed interest but they haven't bidded for him yet. We believe He's on standby just in case the Morata deal goes tits up"
    Howard: "Idiots, Denis Law is way better then Morata!"
