While Juve may be a daunting move, Herculez Gomez feels it's an amazing move for Weston McKennie.

Ronaldo started the scoring after just 20 minutes with a right-footed shot from the centre of the box into the bottom left corner.
Juventus were on top for most of the game but it took until 11 minutes into the second half for Ramsey to secure the Serie A side's second goal with a right-footed shot down the middle of the goal. Pjaca added the third on 66 minutes before Portanova stole two late goals in stoppage time. Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo was interviewed by Sky Sport today and discussed the Bianconeri's striker situation following his side's friendly victory over Novara. Juve have been heavily linked with a move for Roma's Edin Dzeko and Barcelona's Luis Suarez, however, they have yet to complete a deal for either. "A striker?
Yes, I need one as soon as possible, but the transfer market is long and there's still time," said Pirlo. Roma's Bosnian striker is said to be the number one priority for Pirlo, but the Giallorossi will only allow him to leave once they secure a deal for Napoli's Arkadiusz Milik, which has yet to happen.
