Reports today in the Corrie della Sera, a trusted Italian newspaper, suggest that Newcastle full-back Olivier Bernard, is going to Juventus. There are also reports in several other newspapers.

Juventus first wanted Jankulovski, but it now looks like they will be making a move for Oliver Bernard, who is out of contract in the summer and would be available on a free.

La Repubblica states: Juventus are to offer a contract to Oliver Bernard of Newcastle United.

The Corrie Della Sera also reports that Olivier Bernard will be going to Juventus, but also has Igor Tudor going in the opposite direction.

La Stampa is reporting that Bernard is off to Juventus too, and also that Tudor will come to St James' Park - only Newcastle will recieve some cash too.

Each paper is confident that Bernard will move from St James' Park.

:confused: why would we pay or offer Tudor if Bernard is out of conract?

I can see Tudor moving to EPL, but this Bernard, is he any good?

EDIT:

I googled him and found an article from a french magazin (nouvel obs') saying that Newcastle offered a contract to Bernard. Juven wasn't mentionned.

Bernard compared to Janku is SHIT. He's an OK left-back, nothing more. He goes forward a lot, sort of like R. Carlos and his defending isnt anything near brilliant. i'm totally against this move.

This has got to be a joke. Bernard is one of the most risky left-backs in the world, and has a penchant for helping the other team score and not closing down the opposition. He gets beat in the EPL, he would get raped in Italy.

Maybe he likes to play in black and white , who knows? But I know there aint smoke without fire as 4 newspapers are carrying this story but why on earth would we need another left back and even if we do why a newcastle player, ok why not go the whole hog and get Bramble and O" Brien for Thuram and Cannavaro?

Maybe the press got the wrong player, and maybe Laurent Robert is the player we are going to obtain from Newcastle. Robert is supposed to leave this January after contract and playing disputes. Well, I just pray that its not Bernard..

Exactly. What was the point of buying him if we're going to embaress ourseleves with a player bearly good enough to play in Serie A?
