Five Players That Juventus Should Sell in The Summer Transfer Market

It finally happened. Much to the dismay of their fans and the delight of their opponents, Juventus were uncrowned after dominating Italian for nine straight years. Although they ended their campaign with two domestic trophies and a spot in next season’s edition in the Champions League, that was simply not enough to satisfy the black and white hemisphere – as Andrea Pirlo would later learn in the hard way. With a new (old) manager and a new (promoted) sporting director, the Bianconeri must work on filling the holes within their squad.

But first, Juventus must sell some of their current players, including the five listed below.

Leonardo Bonucci (Center Back)

First, let’s make it clear that this is an opinion-based article, so we’re just telling it from our own perspective.

The Italian veteran is no longer the same player who was considered to be as one of the best defenders in the world around 2016, and he was relegated to the bench by the end of last season.

With Giorgio Chiellini expected to remain for another year, Leo should be the one to make way for a younger center back

In reality, Federico Cherubini – who took over from Fabio Paratici – is reportedly working on selling Merih Demiral, and therefore, Bonucci is expected to remain at the club (despite some reports linking him with a move towards Tottenham).

Mattia De Sciglio (Fullback)

In 2017, the versatile fullback was reunited with his mentor Massimiliano Allegri at Juventus. But even his former Milan coach wasn’t able to help him fulfilling his early promise.

At the age of 28, the Italian is unlikely to become a pillar at a top European club, and the Old Lady would hope that Lyon would eventually decide to maintain him after a decent loan spell.

Aaron Ramsey (Midfielder)

The Welshman never played for Allegri, and perhaps won’t even have the chance to do so. After two seasons in Turin, it is clear that his best days are well behind him now.

Moreover, the former Arsenal man is one of the highest earners at the club, and the hierarchy would do well to find him a buyer and end this unsuccessful experiment.

Federico Bernardeschi (Winger)

Speaking of players who couldn’t display their best football whilst at Juventus, the Italian international remains a mysterious case.

The former Fiorentina man was a brilliant player during his days in Florence, but has only shown flashes of quality throughout his four seasons in Turin.

Max might opt to keep him, as he did rely on his services in the past, but the 27-year-old is losing value with every underwhelming year he spends at the club, and perhaps it is the right time for the Old Lady to cut her losses on this one.

Cristiano Ronaldo (Forward)

Most probably the toughest decision on the list. The Portuguese superstar remains one of the most prolific strikers in the world, but the question remains whether or not he still has the enthusiasm to embark on another campaign in Turin.

CR7 still has one year left on his contract – which is unlikely to be renewed – and therefore, the club must start building for a future without him.

In the past, Allegri hasn’t been too thrilled on the idea of playing Ronaldo alongside Paulo Dybala in attack, and another season on the bench would complicate the Argentine’s situation even further.

So if Juventus truly plan to build a team around La Joya, then an early divorce with the biggest footballing star in the world is the tough price that they must pay.
