Juventus have completed the signing of Nicklas Bendtner.
The Greatest Striker That Ever Lived has joined the Old Lady on a one year loan deal with an option to buy at the end. The Danish international has been looking for a club all summer and had agreed terms with Siena before the Turin giants came sniffing around.
”Siena sporting director Stefano Antonelli told Sky Sports Italia, “It was seemingly an impossible operation, but we had an agreement with Arsenal and with the player.
“It seemed like a dream, but, at one point, it looked as if we had him. The interest from Juventus then changed the scenario.”
And it was hardly a ringing endorsement of Bendtner’s quality when the Juve sporting director said of their decision to bring him in, “Bendtner is not the high-profile striker we were hoping to sign but it’s a chance we had to take in a difficult market like this.”
Still, he can change their opinion with hard working, storming performances. Ahem. Farewell Nick, you weren’t ever as good as you thought you were, nor were you as bad as people said.
Until next summer … when we can’t find a club to sell you to!
