Cristian Pasquato has become a new player of Legia Warsaw.
28-year-old Italian (today celebrates his birthday) arrived in Warsaw on Tuesday and underwent medical tests in order to sign a contract with the Polish champion on Wednesday, and it will be valid until 30 June 2019 with the option of extending it for the additional season. In new colors he will appear with number 8.
Pasquato moves from Juventus, but he only played in one match there. He spent most of the time on loans - lately in Russian Krylia Soviet Samara. In the 2016/2017 season, he scored five goals and added eight assists in 26 Premier League games. He most often played as a central forward, but he also happened to be an offensive midfielder, where he should most often get a chance at Legia.
Legia in terms of a solid relationship will be his only club in the career after Juventus. In addition to the listed Krylia, he also performed in Empoli, Trieste, Modena, Lecce, Torino, Udinese, Bologna, Padova, Pescara and Livorno.
The "Militarians" thus make the fifth transfer in the summer window after Łukasz Moneta, Krzysztof Mączyński, Hildeberto and Armando Sadik. The next will only occur if the players leave the current squad. The foreign transfer of Guilherme and Michal Pazdan is taking into account.
