Federico Bernardeschi is currently one of the most important players for Toronto FC, if not the most important already. With his trajectory at the club, it seems that the 30-year-old Italian has found comfort this season, the point where he performs excellently to participate in the team's game and above all contributes with goals in his matches.

Occupying the 3rd position in the Eastern Conference in the MLS and being on the verge of reaching the semifinals of the Canadian Championship, Federico Bernardeschi has been practically present in every Toronto FC match in 2024, playing 12 out of 13 games this year and contributing 2 goals and 2 assists.

A story that could extend for a long time

His arrival in 2022 promised a future full of triumphs and victories for TFC, and it seems that in 2024 those fruits are being realized. Therefore, the club plans to extend Bernardeschi's contract, with an Italian newspaper confirming this work being done with the 30-year-old footballer.

His contract expires in 2026, when he will be 32 years old, but it is expected that his story with TFC will continue to grow longer, attracting glory and victories to this club, which has long needed a figure who can compete at the level Bernardeschi has been showing in his recent matches.

An encouraging piece of news for Toronto FC fans, who live with the hope of having this Italian football star within their squad for many more years, bringing joy and goals in what will be one of the final stretches of his career experienced at the wonderful Toronto FC club.
