Report: Dani Osvaldo elects for Juventus return, making early Giovinvo exit possible

1 Comment

Reportedly-AWOL Inter Milan forward Dani Osvaldo, 29, has reportedly chosen one of his 10 former clubs, three-time defending Serie A champions Juventus, as his next club after falling out with the hierarchy and teammates in Milan, according to a report by GianlucaDiMarzio.com’s David Amoyal.

Osvaldo, who in the last two and a half seasons alone has been on the books at Roma, Southampton, Juve and Inter, reportedly had offers from Serie A sides Torino, Cagliari, AC Milan and Premier League club Queens Park Rangers.

Amoyal previously reported that recent Toronto FC Designated Player signing Sebastian Giovinco could join his new club six months early, provided Juve make the necessary additions before the close of the January transfer window. The capture of Osvaldo would, presumably, satisfy that requirement and make way for Giovinco to join TFC ahead of the 2015 MLS season.

Oh, the dominoes and far-reaching impact of the international transfer market. Milan, Turin and Toronto.
