By Football Italian staffThis morning the Bianconeri announced they have offered the former Pio Moro head coach to the Serie A club for €1.1m.
The news was met with a sigh of relief by the fans and media alike.
The Pio was the man who helped them to the Scudetto in the 2012/13 season.
He was also responsible for the team’s historic run to the Champions League final.
He is also a well-respected figure in the Italian footballing world and has been a fixture in the Biancocelesti since they were founded in the early 1990s.
He is now the head coach of a team which finished fourth in Serie A last season, just one point behind champions Juventus.
It was Moro who convinced Pio to join the club and to continue his career at Juventus.
The former Vincenza coach had been linked with a return to Italy for the first time in his career, but he chose to stay with the Biancos.
The new owner, Alessandro De Marchi, is keen to build a team that can compete with the big clubs in Serie B, and it looks like the club is on the verge of doing just that.
It is unclear how much the Biancons would have to sell to recoup their money, and whether Moro would even be interested in such a price.
It would be a major coup for the club to have a coach of his calibre, and would help them retain the player he has brought in from Vassalo Pio.
But Juventus have also been linked to Pio for a while, and there is no doubt that he is interested in returning to Turin.
The Bianconese are keen to strengthen their squad and have been linked, among others, to former Inter boss Carlo Ancelotti, who was brought in to replace Pio in 2017.
Pio is expected to depart Turin at the end of the season, but the Biancanas need to find a replacement sooner rather than later, and this move is the latest attempt to do just that, as the club have been forced to sell a number of players in the past few years.
