Figo's agent announced that real's no. 10 is definately leaving the spanish capitol at the end of next season...
I've always loved the player and believe it would be awesome to see him at juve. But on the otherhand he's gettin a little old.
What do you guys think? Is he good enough for 1 or 2 seasons at Juve?

He plays for my beloved Portugal NT, so I carry a bias. That said, he's going to command too high a price and he will have a very short useful shelf-life on the squad. If this were a few years ago, however...

That and this team needs leaders on the squad to fire up their teammates when things get tough. Figo spends way too much time pouting and sulking for that role.

is there any linkage with juventus? (sources?) otherwise I'd like to move this thread to the misc soccer forum or to merge it with general transfer discussion.

please, use the general discussion thread for those talks. for that purpose it was set up.

Well...Figo has stated in the past he would love to play for Juventus. But that can't be a real source.

no, i dont see a need for him when he is obviously slwoing down and not the player he was 3 seasons ago.

and besides, dont we have enough players nearing 30 or over?

Figo's performances are mostly below par at this stage in his career, but he is - or at least was - a world class player. So if we could get consistency in his performances, I'd say he would be great for us. And it's not because he players is passed his peak, he can't do a good job for a team. IMO there is only one thing you shoud take into consideration: will he make the team stronger or not? If the answer is positive we should get him.

course he will make the team stronger, bu for the money we spend, we could get a player that makes the team even more stronger for a longer timescale....getting figo now, imo is a waste of money....and figo is a legend..but still wouldnt spend on him.

nah, he's no use right now. we lack in almost all departaments on the pitch and figo wont improve any of them really. he should go to a smaller team. parma/lazio/valencia/liverpool type.

Forget about Figo. If we were to get a Portuguese right winger I would like it to be Ricardo Quaresma.
