Royals close to Juventus partnership

Royals close to Juventus partnership

Reading are close to agreeing another partnership with a club, that of Italian Champions Juventus.

Nicky Hammond revealed last week that he has been in Turin for business reasons, but it was unknown whether this was concerning a player or a partnership. However, owner Anton Zingarevich has confirmed that we are trying to form a sister link with the Italian giants.

The Royals formed a link with Galastarary last month, but there have been no active transfer dealings between the two clubs, nor any promotion of either party. Once the link with Juve has been confirmed, it is also unknown to what forms the partnership will revolve around.

I doubt we will be seeing a Watford-esque system, which has been criticised by some. I can only imagine it will be similar to the Gala link, but possibly slightly more active in terms of loan deals - I can't see any major developments though with these deals.
