Domenico Berardi: a 19-year-old phenom seemingly destined for greatness.
Arturo Vidal: one of the best midfielders in the game—possibly the best player—and the brightest star on Italy's strongest team.
What brings the two together for us today? The inevitability of their becoming teammates—likely as early as next year.
Berardi can give Antonio Conte precious tactical flexibility and precocious goalscoring ability in next season's campaign—all without breaking the bank. Yes, the second half of his rights will likely cost more than the €4 million that Juve paid for the initial chunk but compared with going out and buying a similar player, it's going to be loose change.
Despite his immense potential, there is still a lot for Berardi to learn. There are few players on the squad who can teach him better than Il Guerriero.
What can Vidal do to help Berardi become a better player? Let's take a look at what lessons the younger player can learn.
