The 19-year-old Cosimo Marco Da Graca has been one of the standout performers of the primavera side.

Cristiano Ronaldo‘s impact at Juventus has been extraordinary, exceeding the expectations after he sealed his move from Real Madrid.

Although the Old Lady have struggled, on the whole, the Portuguese skipper’s contribution cannot be taken for granted.

However, the 36-year-old wouldn’t last long at Turin as his contract expires next summer and various reports suggest that he could force out a move this summer or opt against signing a contract extension.

Ronaldo’s shoes are extremely hard to fill, but the Old Lady can still have a cost-effective yet promising solution if they look up to U-23 striker Cosimo Marco Da Graca.

The 19-year-old might be a little familiar with the fans after having made it to the first-team squad on many occasions last season. He eventually had his debut under Andrea Pirlo, coming as a late substitute in the Coppa Italia clash against SPAL.

The young Italian striker mustered an eye-catching 15 goals in 17 Primavera appearances last season, which eventually persuaded the Bianconeri to hand him a new deal until 2024.

Juventus currently boast Alvaro Morata and Paulo Dybala in the attack, but none of them is typical centre-forwards and can’t produce the numbers as same as Ronaldo.

With the mounting financial issues, the Bianconeri can turn their attention towards youth ranks, and they have a talented striker in Marco Da Graca.

The former Palermo star, who was also linked with Chelsea, can be a great addition to Max Allegri next season.
