Previously, Lorenzo Insigne and Domenico Criscito landed in Canada first, even on free transfers after their contracts with their respective teams, Napoli and Genoa, expired on June 30.
Federico Bernardeschi was released by Juventus on the same date after spending five years with the Turin giants.
The Italy international was denied a contract extension because he performed below the expectations set for him when he arrived from Fiorentina in the summer of 2017.
Bernardeschi, who won Euro 2020 with the Italian national team, brightened up his trophy cabinet by winning three Scudetto titles, two Coppa Italias and two Italian Super Cups during his time with the Bianconeri.
However, the 28-year-old could only score 12 goals and 24. to help from 183 appearances in all competitions while playing for The Old Lady. In fact, Bernardeschi arrived in Turin compared to Roberto Baggio, the Italian footballing legend who took a similar path from Fiorentina to Juventus in 1990.
