Lucas Piazon – A Gift To Juventus and Calcio

With Leonardo hoping to deliver Ganso to Inter and only an official confirmation separating Juventus from Lucas Piazon, Serie A’s dwindling reputation in Europe seems to have no bearing on South American child prodigies eager to follow in Kaka and Javier Pastore’s footsteps. Piazon’s arrival to the peninsula will not only represent a coup for the club but for calcio as a whole as Italy attempts to establish its name as the place to launch emerging talent.
One quick search on Google for the youngster and you will immediately see all the results liken the player to Brazilian superstar, Kaka. Click on Google images and you will see the physical resemblance is striking. Watching the phenomenon take to the field, it is easy to see why the Brazilian club offered him an agreement at the tender age of 14. Having been brought up in a loving and wealthy family, Piazon, much like his idol who also plied his trade his trade in Sao Paulo, grew up quickly to boast wisdom well beyond his 16 years. Gifted with an extraordinary ability to read the game, his elegance and unpredictability up front make him a rare commodity. But it his work horse like approach to the game and innate ability to lead others that have allowed his critics to draw comparisons with the Real Madrid galactico.
However the differences end there as Piazon is said to possess that bit extra. Indeed, even FIFA agent Sabatino Durante labelled him as: “one of those talents who are born every 50 years.” Due to his ability to deliver that devastating pass through the middle to launch an attack, many have assumed the player to be an attacking midfielder. In fact his actual position on the field has been subject to countless discussions until the player himself finally stated: “I’m more of a striker, a second striker.” Whilst creativity comes easily to him, his imposing height – standing tall at 1.80 cm – his positioning and ability to kick the ball with either foot means he can easily play as a prima punta due to his clever ability of overcoming enemy lines. Blessed with astonishing pace, it is said that when he sets off with the ball at his feet, no defender can catch him without succumbing to a card.
With his talent grabbing more and more of the headlines after earning the title of top scorer in the South American Under-15 championship, European clubs sat up and took notice. Enticed by the lure of big money and a better life, Piazon’s parents attempted to sever ties with the Brazilian club by citing irregularities within the agreement they had in place so that they may strike a deal with one of the many interested clubs that had contacted them. Sao Paulo took their case to the Brazilian Football Federation – CBF – who ruled in favour of the club forcing the Piazon family to abide by the agreement they had in place. Juventus, meanwhile decided to take a different route and opened up dialogue with the club itself and their work behind the shadows seems to have yielded success as FIFA Agent Durante told Tuttosport: “Juventus have already closed [a deal for Piazon].
Unless the player of Venetian origin finds an Italian passport soon, then he is not expected to arrive until summer at the very earliest but his arrival will be eagerly anticipated by all. Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
