White smoke for player confirmation after the loan: a four-year contract is ready for him
Torino redeems Josip Brekalo from Wolfsburg. And there could not have been better news for the grenade fans with which to start the spring, because the Croatian genius was one of the best talents to emerge in the first year of Juric management. Imagination, strokes, plays and even six league goals that make him the grenade player with the highest number of goals in Serie A: during these months the club has always been satisfied with the performance of the Croatian attacking midfielder, and has now decided to buy him entirely. It is an important, significant market move, in the name of an increasingly quality future. It is the future that has already begun, thanks to the laying of this beautiful solid brick to build the Taurus to come. Alongside which there is also the redemption of Rolando Mandragora: although mandatory, it still represents another millionaire investment for the future.
Brekalo had arrived at the Filadelfia on the last day of the transfer market summer, following a courtship of a couple of abundant months by the technical director, Davide Vagnati. Torino managed to steal from a thick competition: at the time in the race there was Lazio, in the front row among the Italians, Sevilla and Villarreal in Spain above all, but the interests of several English clubs were also reported. Brekalo had begun the journey with the grenade with the formula of the loan from Wolfsburg, with an option for the right of redemption in favor of Torino to be enforced by 30 March. Which now the club will exercise. If we want it is, after all, an almost announced happy ending to an adventure that has met with the satisfaction of the club, of Juric (who has repeatedly said about him: “Josip has always had a good continuity, I am satisfied with what he is doing still has significant room for growth “) and also of the Brekalo family. Because it was between Turin, Toro and Josip that a real stroke of love at first sight. Brekalo himself never hid it. He told it, he explained it in all languages (from English to Italian with which he begins to have a certain familiarity, to finish in Croatian), and in all contexts: he and his family fell in love with Turin , a city with which a special feeling was born. They want to stay here and they will stay here for the next four years. After the ransom, Brekalo will sign a four-year deal with Toro.
The unexpected Covid
Between the market and the plans for the future, there is also current events, the story of what is happening in these hours. Because on Monday Brekalo tested positive for Covid-19 during a routine check carried out in the withdrawal of the Croatian national team, from which he had been called up for the next two friendlies: the first scheduled for Saturday afternoon, in Doha, against Slovenia; the second scheduled for Tuesday 29, again in Qatar, against Bulgaria. On Monday the Croatian federation had formalized the positivity to the virus: since then Brekalo has remained in isolation in his home in Zagreb. Right now he is completely asymptomatic and, luckily, he is fine. During the day he will be subjected to a second tampon, at a distance of forty-eight hours from the first: in case he immediately returns negative (a difficult eventuality), he could also be available already for Saturday’s test against Slovenia. Otherwise, the possibility of seeing him on the pitch in the next friendly against the Bulgarian national team will obviously depend on the checks that will be repeated this weekend.
