Berardi set to leave Sassuolo for ‘the right proposal’
Domenico Berardi has confirmed that he will look to leave Sassuolo in the summer ‘if the right proposal arrives’.
The 24-year-old has spent his career so far with the Serie A side, scoring 73 goals in over 220 appearances in all competitions since making his debut in a Serie B clash against Cesena in August 2012.
Berardi almost joined Juventus in the past, but the Bianconeri opted against taking up their option to sign him with the mutual agreement of the player.
But the Italy international now appears ready to move on ahead of next season if an opportunity arises for him.
‘I wasn’t ready then, so that is why I decided to remain and I don’t think I wasted that time,’ he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
‘Now I feel at ease with myself, especially as I am more of a complete player and I’m no longer such a hothead.
‘My first career objective was to complete the maturation process and I feel that I’ve done that with Sassuolo.
I find it difficult to change, but it no longer frightens me.
I would do it.
‘The next objective is to play in Europe, but it’d have to be at a club where I know I’d be used regularly, if not all the time.
That is my priority.
‘ When asked where he would like to go, the Inter fan added: ‘If an offer were to come, whether it was from Milan or any other club, I’d evaluate it.
If I feel that it is the right proposal, one I have to grab, then this time I’ll tell Sassuolo: I’m taking that chance.’
