Italy’s Bernardeschi joins Toronto

Italy winger Federico Bernardeschi has signed a four-year deal with MLS side Toronto FC from Serie A giants Juventus, the Major League Soccer team announced on Saturday.

The 28-year-old former Fiorentina player spent five seasons with Juventus, winning seven trophies including three consecutive Serie A titles from 2018 to 2020.

Bernardeschi joins fellow Italy international Lorenzo Insigne in Toronto, the Napoli winger having also joined the Canadian club this summer.

“We think he’s a great fit for what we’re trying to build here at TFC and look forward to getting him on the field,” said Toronto FC Head Coach and Sporting Director Bob Bradley.

“He’s an attacking player who is also known for working hard for the team.”

Capped 39 times for Italy, Bernardeschi won the European championship last year.
