Giuntoli lands in Torino to begin new role with Juventus

After officially bidding farewell to Napoli, Cristiano Giuntoli landed in Torino today to begin his role as the new sporting director of Juventus.

The 51-year-old director successfully finalised his departure from the Partenopei last week after a discussion with president Aurelio De Laurentiis, allowing him to leave a year before his contract’s original end date.

As reported by Gianluca Di Marzio and La Gazzetta dello Sport, the 51 year-old wasted no time after landing in the city and headed straight to work at the club’s Continassa headquarters, where he met with various senior executives.

Giuntoli agreed to a five-year contract with the Bianconeri, subsequently ending his eight-year stint at Napoli.
