Juventus draws from Vicenza

Juventus has finalized the purchase of 2004-born forward Tommaso Mancini from Vicenza. The player will join the Juventus Primavera team and then the Under-23 team.

Many have already made challenging comparisons for this 18-year-old young forward, dubbed as the heir to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, due to his long-limbed physique and 6-foot-9 height.

“The LR Vicenza club announces that it has sold to Juventus FC, outright, the right to the sports performance of striker Tommaso Mancini. Mancini, a Vicenza striker born in 2004 who grew up with the biancorossa jersey, made his first-team debut on January 4, 2021, recording 13 appearances in Serie B. To Tommaso, best wishes for a future full of satisfaction,” reads the note released by the Veneto club.
