Baku, July 16, AZERTAC
Toronto FC announced today that the club has signed Italian international winger Federico Bernardeschi as a Designated Player through 2026. Bernardeschi will be added to the TFC roster pending his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) and work permit, according to the Club.
As per team and Major League Soccer policy, the terms of the contract are confidential.
“We are thrilled to add Federico to our team,” said Toronto FC President Bill Manning. “As a player and a person, we believe he’s exactly what we need right now, both on the field and in the locker room. Federico has proven himself to be a champion and a leader at Juventus and for the Italian national team and brings a pedigree to Toronto that’s second to none."
Bernardeschi has earned 38 caps and scored six goals for the Italian National Team. In the 2020 UEFA European Championship Final (played in 2021), he scored the game-winning penalty in the shoot-out to seal Italy’s victory over England. Bernardeschi received his first call-up in March 2016 and made his international debut in a 1-1 draw against Spain. In addition, he has represented his country at the U-18, U-19, U-20 and U-21 levels.
