Bovo in good Kompany
Wednesday 23 February, 2005

Cesare Bovo and Vincent Kompany are the latest youngsters to be associated with Italian giants Juventus.

The Delle Alpi outfit are keen to rejuvenate their central defensive options for the new campaign, due to the lack of cover for Lilian Thuram and Fabio Cannavaro.

Juve presently only have Paolo Montero and Ciro Ferrara at the club as possible alternatives, following the January departures of Nicola Legrottaglie, Mark Iuliano and Igor Tudor.

Given that Montero is widely considered as past his best, and that Ferrara will retire in the summer, the club need some new faces.

Under-21 international Bovo (pictured) is being monitored after his performances for struggling Parma this term.

The stopper, who is on loan at the Stadio Tardini, is part owned by both Roma and Palermo.

The latter are willing to do business with the Bianconeri but the capital boys are not so keen, as they would like the former Lecce youngster at the Olimpico in the future.

That may see Juve look elsewhere, with Anderlecht ace Kompany another possible acquisition.

The 18-year-old is highly-rated across Europe, leading to real interest from both Milan clubs recently.

Juventus are apparently ready to offer £4m plus a player between Tudor, currently on loan at Siena, and striker Marcelo Zalayeta.

I doubt it, Bovo will want to go back to Roma...he is a Romanista and will want to play for Roma, plus Juve's record of giving youngster a chance is less then inspiring, and that is a factor...ditto for Kompany!

He'd be a good back-up player but Roma might be reluctant to give us their half of him. I'd rather go for Andrea Barzagli or Luis Perea anyways.

Same here
He totaly neutralised our forwards when we played palermo
I never saw Kompany play but I hope he is good when half of europes big clubs want him and he is young too
Maybe next year we should give a chance to Masiello

All of a sudden I want an Abramovic to take over the club. Well, not really, but why does Moggi have to be so stingy all the time?

I dont understand why Juve is being linked with Bovo oftenly. The guy SUCKS. He's a crapier version of Bonera, who is already overrated. Even Tudor would be like a god compared to that piece of trash.

Kompany, I saw him when he played for Belgium, at the age of 17 against France, he had Henry is his pocket!

And again for the Tsunami game, he pretty good, I know its like an exbition, but defenders didnt have a good time, and he did well.
