Domenico Berardi was discovered by Sassuolo while playing five-a-side football with his brother's friends in Modena. Less than four years later, he's one of the hottest young prospects in world football.
The tall, aggressive, lightning-quick forward from Cariati in the southern region of Calabria is currently 50 percent owned by Juventus, which means the Bianconeri must enter into a blind bidding process at the end of the season with Sassuolo to decide the player's future.
They'll win, of course, but what they do with the player after that remains up for debate. Bringing a teenager into a side like Juventus is always a risk, especially when there are several experienced and talented forwards already available.
That said, Antonio Conte has shown huge faith in Paul Pogba, and he had that trust repaid by some stellar performances this year. By bringing Berardi to Turin, the manager can build for the future while at the same time adding a lethal attacking option to his squad.
