The great talent Martin Palumbo to Juventus – NRK Sport – Sports news, results and broadcast schedule

Palumbo leaves Udinese and joins Juventus. Palumbo’s agent Claudio Vagheggi confirms this to NRK.

– He goes on loan to Juventus for one year, they also have an option to buy, Vagheggi says to NRK on Friday.

– Very satisfied

Several Juventus accounts on social media have on Friday posted video images of Palumbo entering the big club’s training facility.

– He is very happy to be part of Juventus, it is after all one of the world’s biggest clubs, says Vagheggi.

The 19-year-old midfielder has signed for four Serie A games for Udinese, three as a substitute and one from the start.

– It was Juventus who wanted Martin Palumbo for the club. I passed this on to the family and together we came to the conclusion that this is the best for his career, says the agent.

At the club with the nickname “the old lady”, he will mainly play for the U23 team which is currently in Serie C, a press contact in Juventus informs NRK.

As late as 2020, Palumbo signed a contract with Udinese for the 2025 season.

In Juventus, he will play together with another Norwegian great talent, namely Elias Solberg (17) who was recently brought in from Ull / Kisa.

Palumbo was born in Radøy in Norway, has a Norwegian mother and has matches on age-specific national teams for Norway, but has lived in Italy since he was three years old.


Recently, Palumbo, who already has international matches for G17 and G18 for Norway, was selected for the Norwegian U21 national team for the first time. He also has U-national matches for Italy.

U21 head coach Leif Gunnar Smerud talks about positive signals when it comes to which national team the midfielder will probably choose in the end.

– He is half Norwegian and half Italian, it can not be that easy, and more and more people end up in that situation. But Martin was with us in June and made a solid impression, and I look forward to getting him on board (on the U21 national team), Smerud told NRK after the withdrawal.

– What kind of potential does he have?

– Andreas Schjelderup is a 2004 model and the youngest in the squad, Martin is together with Fredrik Oppegård and Sivert Mannsverk 2002 model. This is the future, they are the next litter and can play another qualifier for U21, Schjelderup can play two. It indicates that Martin is someone I believe in, absolutely, says Smerud.
