    I have missed watching him play so much. Really happy he is back and gets another extended rest with his club over the summer.

    Great seeing him try to combine in and around the final 1/3 of the field. It was desperately needed with Rabiot not providing much offensively and the team showing to be on the beaches already.

    Hoping for a healthy 2022/2023 regardless of where he is playing next year (hopefully in Turin)!

    A midfield of Locatelli-Pogba- Wes would be pretty amazing to see, along with Vlahovic up front. It would actually be kindof cool to see Pulisic play with that group as well- although I doubt seriously that’s in the cards.

    Juventus needs serious reinforcements on the backline

    If Aaronson is worth 30 Wes is worth 50.

    Hopefully Wes is smart enough to stay away from Team Bonesaw. Arsenal are a good team that could use him. Tottenham are a good team with a great manager, that could use him. But for both those clubs he is unlikely to be deployed in the same open range attacker way that he was for Juventus this season.

    Team Bonesaw would actually be a fairly decent move in that they are an EPL team that's very much on the upswing where he'd probably play a ton. I just personally wouldn't want to go there for ethical reasons.

    Not at Tomori's level, but I think I have heard a sentance here and there. I wouldn't call it conversational.

    A few sentences over two years.

    I was hoping he would have done an interview in Italian by now but it is what it is. I don't know if Arturo Vidal ever learned Italian while at Juve for 4 years. Maybe he doesn't feel comfortable enough to give an interview in Italian but is able to communicate just fine on the field or in the dressing room.

    Completely agree! However, someone is worth only as much as someone is willing to pay. Juve paid 90m for Higuain, was he worth that? Absolutely not. Neymar for 200m? Absolutely not.

    An Englishman speaking a foreign language? That's quite rare.

    It's pretty impressive. I know Michael Bradley picked up Italian pretty quickly while at Chievo Verona (RIP Chievo Verona).

    Tomori should of chosen Canada. No shot he's ever seriously considered for england unless he returns to the EPL. They have no respect for serie a, even less for meeelan. Even at our peak we were disrespected

    From what I've been told it was just never in the cards. Which is too bad because they absolutely could use help at center back and I don't know that he'll ever be a major contributor to England. I don't think they'll take him to the World Cup this year, whereas with Canada he wouldn't only be going, he'd be one of the cornerstones of their team. The main issue I think is at the time he was deciding the World Cup did not look like a realistic possibility for Canada.

    It's alright, they have Conor Coady and Tyrone Mings...

    This ties into Weston because either CB could be required to start in the WC against the U.S. and Weston will continue to play at Juventus or whatever EPL team offers the most money this summer.

    Edit. I stand corrected, Mings wasn't called in to their summer matches and Tomori was.

    I don't know what's in his head but I'm sure he has had second thoughts about the decision.

    How many more games will Weston need to play in before he becomes the Yank with the most appearances in Serie A/Italy?

    Twenty one to pass Michael Bradley in Serie A. If you count Alfonso Negro, then 22. If you don't limit yourself to Serie A, then 89 to catch Armando Frigo
