Women’s football: Juve, Rome and Milan looking for reinforcements in Europe

The Bianconeri are waiting for the Icelandic Sara Björk Gunnarsdottir. Rome goes shopping at Bayern

While the Castel di Sangro National Team is preparing for the European Championship, the new season of women’s football will officially begin today, at least in terms of club activity, following the draw for the preliminary phase of the Champions League. Therefore, both teams have already moved to the market to try to strengthen and be ready for the Champions League, but also for the first professional championship. And the new status attracts great players who will increase the value of the upcoming Serie A.


European champion at Juventus. This is the Icelandic Sara Björk Gunnarsdottir, who arrived from Lyon (who won the Champions League in Turin a month ago) but also with the shirts of Malmö (who later became Rosengard) and Wolfsburg. Gunnarsdottir signed a contract until 2024 and will live in Italy with his son Ragnar Frank, born last November and after whose birth the midfielder has resumed competitive activity. Once again, the Juventus club had placed him a few days ago when formalizing the arrival of Bayern Munich from Lineth Beerensteyn, a Dutch winger. European Under-19 Champion in 2014, he was also part of the Dutch senior team that triumphed in Europe at home in 2017. They greeted Czech Staskova and Finnish Hyyrynen, but Juventus will once again bring Sofia Cantore, a of the fronts. Turin, the most promising in the entire Italian landscape: after the “practices” on loan with Verona, Florentia and Sassuolo, the time has come for the 22-year-old to return to Juve, who made her sign a contract until 2025 and given the new number t-shirt. A great responsibility, but also a great show of confidence for a player who finished the season in February due to a fibula fracture suffered in the national team. The five-time Italian champions, already in the last weeks of the season, had renewed the contracts of all the big names: the last was that of Zamanian, who followed those of Bonansea, Girelli, Pedersen, Lundorf, Boattin, Peyraud -. Magnin, Grosso, Hurtig, Sembrant and also Salvai who will return from a serious knee injury.


The Serie A went shopping at Bayern. If Juventus has formalized the arrival of Beerensteyn, Roma have borrowed the Austrian Carina Wenninger, who also participates in the European Championship that will begin on July 6 in England. Wenninger, 31, is the player with the most appearances at Bayern, where she reached the age of 15. Andressa, Giugliano, Haavi and Greggi (in the hypothesis of the midfield Nocchi of Empoli and Mihashi of Sassuolo) have recently renewed the contract, while saying goodbye to Pirone (could go to Parma, which acquired the title of Empoli ), but the big blow The club giallorossi could place him in attack, where the number one target is Valentina Giacinti. The national team striker, who will return to Milan after being loaned to Fiorentina, will not stay with the Rossoneri. Giacinti had already been close to Roma in January, but also the arrival of Kosovare Asllani in Milan suggests that in the end Spugna will have a new center forward to attack the Scudetto and qualify for the Champions League, a unforeseen conclusion given the two preliminaries. rounds to overcome.


Outside the next Champions League, Milan did not stop to watch. As mentioned, the Swedish Asllani will come from Real Madrid: a great international success given the player’s resume (before Real had also played with PSG and Manchester City, and also in America), but also the opportunity of relaunching himself after a season conditioned by an injury. However, Asllani is not the only acquisition of AC Milan: the twins Dubcova, Kamila and Michaela are also very close, both with a past at Sassuolo (very recently Kamila, Michaela until 2020). The eyes are also on the defensive end Soffia (Rome) and the Polish Malgorzata Mesjasz, central (but who can also play in midfield) under the German Turbine Potsdam.


Inter will have to replace defender Kathellen (destined for Real Madrid) and would like to do so with Alice Tortelli (Fiorentina) and has targeted Englishman Charlie Wellings (Celtic); lilac, on the other hand, could return Alice Parisi, who had left Fiorentina in 2020 to go to Sassuolo, which is about to receive Isotta Nocchi (Empoli) and Eleonora Goldoni (Naples). The young Maltese talent Haley Bugeja (born in 2004) has instead received an offer to play in America. Finally, all the girls from Empoli will have to find accommodation: DS Aurelio and coach Ulderici will work for the new Parma, it is likely that they will also be able to follow several players along the same path.
