In the 2022/2023 season Franco Israel will set off on a new journey in his career. After four years in Juventus, the Uruguayan goalkeeper will change the black and white stripes for the green and white hoops of Sporting CP shirt to play in the Portuguese top flight.

Israel leaves Juventus after a journey that saw him display all his talent, stepping up from Under-19 to Under-23. Last season was emblematic, when Franco defended the Bianconeri goal in 39 games, keeping 12 clean sheets, four of which in the extraordinary run in the playoffs. The growth of the keeper was one element of the positive season for the whole group coached by Lamberto Zauli.
Israel departs with the awareness of having matured as a player but also as a person, and is now ready to dive into this new and stimulating adventure.
