A Pirlo back at Juventus? Per reports, it may be happening.
The Pirlo is question is 15-year-old Nicolò, who will be undergoing a trial with the Bianconeri’s U-16 program, according to Il Corriere Torino.
Born in 2003 and the number 8 on his back, Nicolò has played the last three seasons with local side Pecetto, and immediately had some of the big club’s eyes focused on him.
His father and Italy legend Andrea was full of praise for his teenager.
“When I look at him he’s just a young boy, I see how he controls and passes the ball. He learned quickly, he knows how to control it and pass it, he’s good. With Nicolò he reminds me of myself a lot, he’s technical with little grinta, but most of all he enjoys football, which is the most important thing.”
