Sampdoria President Massimo Ferrero says Juventus “already regret” losing Patrik Schick, who will sign for Roma.
The Czech striker was all-set to join the Bianconeri earlier this summer for €30.5m, and even had a medical in Turin.
However, the move was cancelled due to a heart issue, and while that did clear up, the Lupi came in with a better offer, believed to be a loan with €38m obligation to buy.
“Juventus already regret losing Schick,” Ferrero said on Radio Radio.
“I knew that would happen. They wanted to do it ‘cacio e pepe’, but they didn’t know that I only eat tomato and basil. Schick can become the new [Francesco] Totti.
“Milan Skriniar to Inter? It’s not true that I took €30m, it was €35m.”
