Juventus is exploring every possible alternative in the winter transfer market, but they are holding onto a last-minute plan they want to finalize.

"Juve made me a man and a top-level footballer. A piece of my heart stayed there. I will always be there for Juve. And then I have a house in Turin," Federico Bernardeschi spoke a couple of months ago about Juventus Turin.

Since then, these statements have seemingly haunted the Toronto FC player. With 5 goals in 31 matches for the Canadian squad, the 29-year-old winger has seen his name linked to the Piedmontese team in one way or another.

Now, CalcioMercato.com reports that Allegri is once again considering bringing back the Italian winger. However, it's seen as a last resort as Juventus continues to explore alternative solutions for the midfield.

Toronto, on the other hand, maybe would allow Bernardeschi to leave on a simple loan, the ideal arrangement for the Bianconeri at this stage. Through his representatives, the player has already shown readiness to take significant steps towards Juventus, aiming for a quick agreement regarding the contract.
