Allegri to Face Increased Pressure to Win Next Season

Massimiliano Allegri has been very influential in the transfer market decisions since returning to Juventus. The hierarchy decided to back him again despite two trophy-less seasons in a row. Things won’t change with Cristiano Giuntoli at the helm despite the chatter preceding his arrival.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Bianconeri management will keep listening to the coach’s input. However, he’ll be under pressure to win the title in the upcoming season. The Old Lady settled their off-the-pitch problems and finished restructuring their front office. All eyes will be on the pitch.

Allegri has two years on his contract with Juventus. A divorce will be a lot less expensive next year. The coach wanted experienced players last summer. The execs signed Paul Pogba, Angel Di Maria, and Leandro Paredes, but the performances remained lackadaisical.

The gaffer is the biggest sponsor of swapping out Romelu Lukaku for Dusan Vlahovic, but there are also meaningful economic reasons at stake. Other than a €40M difference in their respective price tags, the Belgian would cost €30M less than the ex-Fiorentina star salary-wise in the next triennium thanks to fiscal advantages for foreigners moving to Italy.

Our Take on Juventus and Allegri

They didn’t pull the trigger mostly to avoid having two expensive managers on their payroll. It’ll naturally be a make-or-break season for him.
