Former Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli commented on the rumors linking Roma star Nicolo Zaniolo with a summer move to the Bianconeri.

The retired centre-back sounded skeptical regarding Zaniolo’s fit at Juve in the recent interview with Tuttosport.

“I don’t know if Zaniolo is up to the task,” said Barzagli. “I can’t really picture him at Juventus.”

“I’m not saying this with regards to his qualities because those are for everyone to see. It’s normal that Juventus are targeting the best young Italian talents in order to build a new team.”

“I think Zaniolo can be a bit unpredictable at times,” he added. “I would be curious to see him play in the Champions League first.”
