Juventus has been eliminated early from the Champions League, for the third year in a row, an indication that the cycle has really came to an end.
The Bianconeri started a new project last summer, with the goal of rejuvenating the squad and they’ve already started planning to continue the rebuild process this summer.
But after the disappointing Champions League exit, who proved to be worthy of staying at Juve, and who will leave?
Pirlo will surely stay and continue his work calmly, as confirmed by him.
Andrea Agnelli believes in the Italian manager and will continue to back him up, as reported by multiple sources.
As Juventus continues to rebuild, it’s sure that Chiesa and De Ligt will be the players to build around: 2 youngsters who have proven to be very important for the team, with strong personalities, they’ve always showed up when it mattered.
Other players like McKennie and Szczęsny will be part of the project, as reported by journalist Fabrizio Romano.
Players bought last summer like Arthur and Kulusevski should also stay.
In the other hand, some “veterans” like Cuadrado, Bonucci, Buffon will be important to lead the team.
Whether Ronaldo will leave or not remains hard to predict right now, but the Portuguese star will discuss his future with the club soon, according to Fabrizio Romano.
Even if he chooses to leave, finding a club that will be ready to pay his big wages + a transfer fee might not be easy this summer, considering the Covid-19 effects on the transfer market.
Ramsey can leave Juventus if a suitable offer arrives, as he struggled to prove himself, mainly due to his usual physical problems.
Chiellini will probably retire at the end of this season according to La Gazzetta Dello Sport, while Buffon hasn’t made his mind yet.
Other reports mentioned that one of Cristiano Ronaldo, Morata and Dybala will leave Juve this summer, with Dybala having not renewed his contract with the club yet, as he barely played this season due to injury.
Bernardeschi is expected to leave the club, while Demiral might also be sold if an important offer arrives.
Juventus’ biggest problem has been the same for many years now: the midfield.
The Bianconeri are expected to sign 2 midfilders with names like Locatelli, Pogba, Aouar being their main targets.
Juve will also have to sign fullbacks as they struggled in that position this season.
A backup striker is also to be expected.
Other arrivals will depend on the departures and the club’s capability to offload the “unwanted” players.
According to Tuttosport, Fabio Paratici and Pavel Nedved are expected to stay, Fabio is expected to renew his contract with the club soon, as the president Andrea Agnelli still trusts him.
