The transfer window of Juventus promises to be eventful

    What’s next after this ad

    After a catastrophic start to the season which saw Juventus eliminated from the Champions League in the wake of a campaign unworthy of their rank and expectations, the Bianconeri managed to save the pots by being transferred to the Europa League and by securing a third place in Serie A just before the international break linked to the World Cup in Qatar. A very meager consolation when you know the objectives that the Old Lady had this year.

    Especially since the sporting shortcomings were accompanied by serious legal problems culminating in the resignation of Andrea Agnelli and the entire Juventus board of directors with him. The Bianconeri leaders must therefore play on several fronts at the end of the year to bring the Old Lady back to the heights she loves so much. And to succeed in this bet, the winter transfer window which begins in a few days seems to be the ideal time to breathe new life into it.

    Players at the end of their cycle

    For Juventus, the restructuring is total with a board of directors which will surely be made up of great professionals from the economy and law, but unfamiliar with the world of sport. It is therefore Massimiliano Allegri who will have even more of a say, also and above all because the owners know that the footballing skills of the Italian coach correspond to those of the Old Lady and to his current financial pragmatism as well as his lucidity in his requests according to the possibilities of expenditure of the Turin club. In his ideal list for the next transfer window, there are therefore players of international level, compatible with the project and the bianconero DNA, but who will inevitably also see some farewells and sacrifices.

    Juventus can expect a hectic transfer window knowing that several executives are at the end of their careers and should not extend their adventure with the Piedmont club. One of the most emblematic is none other than Juan Cuadrado. The will of the Old Lady would be to find an alternative for him from January, if there are opportunities on the market of course, in order to anticipate his departure at the end of the season. Indeed, the Colombian has been a pillar of the Turin club and Massimiliano Allegri since his arrival but at almost 35 years old, he should leave Juve at the end of his contract (June 30, 2023), unless the situation turns around.

    Another veteran of Juventus concerned by this end of cycle, Alex Sandro. Except surprise, the Brazilian side should follow the same trajectory while the Turin staff is already looking for a replacement. The 31-year-old was also a strongman in Massimiliano Allegri’s side but between declining performance and age-related limitations, he too is set to be released in July. It is therefore urgent to anticipate these next departures as well as possible. Especially if we add to this the departures of players who have recently arrived such as Leandro Paredes who should also no longer wear the bianconere colors next summer even if the Argentinian still has a little time to try to change his management’s mind. .

    The revival is taking place

    Massimilano Allegri understood for a long time that the main building site was in midfield. First, because the risk of losing one of his trusted men is high. Adrien Rabiot and his mother Véronique are currently exploring possible avenues for the 27-year-old Frenchman after an excellent World Cup and as his contract expires next June with the Turin club. If it were up to Juventus and its coach, the French international would stay in Piedmont for several more years, but that does not seem to be on the agenda for the main concerned knowing that proposals are coming on the table. from the Premier League or the big Spanish clubs, against which Juve will find it difficult to fight with millions to keep their player.

    Another player likely to pack his bags, Weston McKennie could leave for new horizons in January. Even if Massimiliano Allegri appreciates the American, he would be ready to let him go to obtain a profile like that of Alexis Mac Allister, from Brighton, freshly crowned world champion with Argentina. The Argentine midfielder has many admirers in Europe, as well as in the Premier League, and should therefore not make old bones on the side of Brighton. While the Italian coach was definitely impressed by the Argentinian’s performance in Qatar, Juventus would like to position themselves on the player but the competition looks tough.

    This is why the name of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic has been on the lips of Bianconeri leaders lately. Massimiliano Allegri’s longtime favorite is yet to extend his contract with Lazio (which expires in 2024). Another hoped-for reinforcement, Diogo Dalot could be targeted by Juventus scouts as Manchester United exercised their unilateral option to extend their one-year contract (until 2024 as well) with other Red Devils executives. The Portuguese is appreciated by the Italian coach of the Old Lady, more than Rick Karsdorp in any case, whose name was mentioned recently in the context of an exchange with Mattia De Sciglio.

    Juventus rely on Arkadiusz Milik

    Juventus bosses are also expected to look into the case of several players in the team who are liked internally. This is particularly the case of Danilo, considered as the possible future captain bianconero according to the Gazetta dello Sport. The Brazilian could also be extended soon. Arkadiusz Milik is also in the small papers of Massimiliano Allegri and the Old Lady would consider exercising her right of redemption valued at 7 million euros while the player is on loan from Olympique de Marseille.
