Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Juventus, who are the reigning champions of Italy, have confirmed that their former player Pirlo will become coach for the U23 team from next season.

This will be a great achievement for the former AC Milan superstar who was known for his excellent style of play during his active playing days for clubs and national team.

Pirlo will be replacing Fabio Pecchia who has been in charge of the team for two seasons and he is set to move to an unnamed Italian Serie A side.

Legit.ng also reported that Danilo has been left unhappy after he was not recognised alongside Juventus teammate Cristiano Ronaldo as the only player to have won trophies in England, Italy and Spain.

The Bianconeri were crowned champions of Italy for the ninth consecutive time after defeating Sampdoria by 2-0 at the weekend.

But FIFA did not realize that Ronaldo is not the only one to have won league titles in three out of Europe's top five leagues.

Legit.ng also reported that Aaron Ramsey is set to be used in a surprise swap deal for Chelsa midfielder Jorginho, according to reports in Italy.

Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri has shown interest in bringing his former midfielder in Napoli and the Blues back to the Allianz Stadium.

And according to Italian news media outlet TuttoMercatoWeb, Sarri could use Ramsey as bait in a straight swap deal.
