JUVE POWER TOO MUCH FOR YORK
YORK City boss Russ Wilcox concedes the Minstermen have no chance of competing with Italian giants Juventus for the permanent signing of Diego De Girolamo.
The 19-year-old is on loan at Bootham Crescent until the end of the season but has caught the eye of some of Europe’s top sides after rejecting a new deal with parent club Sheffield United.
And with Sunderland also interested in signing the Italy Under-20 international striker, Wilcox accepts York are out of the running.
“He’s a very levelheaded lad for 19 who knows what he wants,” the City boss said.
“He will be open to offers in the summer, but I don’t think York City will be able to compete with Juventus for him, and it does not surprise me that they are interested because he’s a quality player.
“My only surprise is that other bigger clubs haven’t come in for him as well.”
