first_imgAtalanta invests about 16 million, more than double that of Valencia, and they are the current Italian U19 champions Maurizio Costanzi, a lifetime forming soccer players in Chievo Verona and a trusted person of the Technical Director Giovanni Sartori, with whom he arrived in 2015, took the mythical witness Mino Favini, who for 25 years directed the Atalanta academy and to which the club, as a posthumous tribute, gave its name to the building destined for the quarry inaugurated in November 2019. Costanzi continued with Favini’s legacy and today there are 80 scouting he coordinates in Italy, Europe and Africa. There are two reasons why Atalanta “controls” such a number of players. One is its commitment to training and recruitment; another, determining in the number of assignments, the fact that in Italy, except Juventus, no Serie A club has a subsidiary team in the style of Spain. That implies that after the training period in the Primavera team, those who are not fit to make the jump to the first team or simply because they have no place for mere chips, continue their training in clubs in Italy (10 ceded militan in Serie A). or in European leagues. AIeksarden Ceferin, president of UEFA, in an interview with ‘Le Tribune de Genéve’, in which he warned that the European football body was going to study limiting player transfers, said: “It is an aberration the number of players that have certain institutions (…) For example, in Italy an entity controls 103 players. We are going to set limits. ” That entity referred to without naming it is the Atalanta de Bergamo, a club that has a payroll 22 players in their first squad, 27 in Atalanta Primavera (Sub’19) and up to 54 ceded by Europe.center_img Atalanta is committed to assignments as a way of keeping the players trained in the Zingonia complex under control. You just have to attend to the age of the ceded to corroborate such a policy: 34 of the 54 are Sub’23 and 17 of them, Sub’20. Etrit Berisha, goalkeeper who plays in the SPAL (30 years) or Marco D’Alessandro, also side of the SPAL (29) are the exceptions. The domain of its quarry, in which around 16 million (more than double that of Valencia), is a reality. Last season they were Italian U19 champions and both Primavera and U18 are today leaders. 17 Sub’19 players are Italian and 10 foreigners (Cameroon, Ivory Coast, Poland, Gambia, Czech Republic, Brazil, Slovenia and Senegal).Valencia, however, which only has six ceded (Jason, Racic, Sáenz, Lato, Blanco and Carbonell) will be presented in San Siro with more youth players in its squad. Gayà, Soler, Ferran and Kang-in Lee, while Gian Piero Gasperini only has three: goalkeepers Sportiello and Rossi and defender Caldara, who has returned in this winter market in Milan.kulusevski, the last pearl of zingonia that Juventus has signedDejan Kulusevski, two months younger than Ferran Torres, is the last pearl formed in the Atalanta quarry. However, the Swedish midfielder, who normally faces Spain in the European Championship, will not play with the first team of Atalanta, a shirt that has only been put on three occasions.Kulusevski has exploded during his assignment in Parma to the point that his signing for the Juventus of Turin became official on January 2, which will pay 35 million euros plus ten in variables. The Swede, thus, becomes the second highest transfer of a footballer born from the year 2000 after Vinicius to Real Madrid.Kulusevski follows in the wake of other youth players who in recent years have left dividends in the Bergamo club accounts: Cagliardini was transferred to Inter for 20.5 million; Caldara, Juve (19); Kessié, to Milan (24), Andrea Conti, to Milan (24) and Zappacosta, to Torino (4.3).last_img
