The 19-year-old conquered fifth place on this year's list of 101 best young players assembled by Don Balon. Juventus have bought the Italian after just one season at Sassuolo and have sent him on loan there for one more year.

On August 2012, Berardi made a debut for the Sassuolo's squad at the age of 16. The club had to wait five more days for his first senior goal ever in a match against Crotone. Mostly because of the youngster, Serie A was insured for his side, scoring 11 goals in 36 matches.

Due to the abilities of the right winger, Liverpool, Manchester United and City started to make enquiries about his availability just a few months after the signing of his first professional contract.

Although the club is now fighting for survival, that didn't influence his goalscoring skills. Expect Berardi, no one from Sassuolo can make a difference on the top goalscorers shortlist, as he scored 12 goals in 25 matches and the runner up by number of goals at the club is Simone Zaza, with only seven goals.

Juventus have signed him in September 2013, but their new player stayed on loan until the season end. Luca Marrone was also the part of the deal, becoming the new player of the club from Reggio Emilia.

He won't be a part of Italy's national team at Brazil, as he hasn't even played yet for Italy U21s, but could be an irreplaceable player in the squad for the European Championship in France 2016.
