Dietl added: “At the beginning of the summer, Juventus originally wanted to sell this Argentinean player, because they were not sure if he could shine in the Maurizio Sarri system which played together with Ronaldo. It was proven at this time that he could do that, he was impressive. Together with Ciro Immobile and Lautaro Martínez, he is the best attacking player in Serie A this season. “
