Inquiry Set to Modify Juventus Transfer Market Approach

The ongoing investigation on the fake plusvalenze will impact the future transfer market strategies of Juventus. The Bianconeri had already ceased using the stratagem in the past window. The pandemic temporarily loosened some financial parameters. It will become the norm in the future, La Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

Their modus operandi shifted once Fabio Paratici was ousted, and Federico Cherubini replaced him. The former right-hand man will be more cautious. New CEO Maurizio Arrivabene will oversee the spending, making sure the deals are sustainable. On top of swaps with bloated evaluation, Juventus will stop chasing after free agents. Despite the savings on fees, those signings often have hefty commissions for agents.

The Old Lady will prioritize investing in youngsters, as they did last summer when they brought in Manuel Locatelli, Moise Kean, and Kaio Jorge. In their latest report, the Juventus brass warned that the probe could have weighty economic consequences. The €400M capital increase might be in jeopardy, at least partially. Ownership pledged €255M, with the rest coming from the market.

According to the newspaper, Juventus plan use €80/85M of it on the transfer market in the next few windows. The money committed to buying out Federico Chiesa and Manuel Locatelli is not part of the tally, nor the income of potential sales. The remainder of the sum will go towards lowering the debts of the club. In the end, the club could plea bargain a sizeable fine and maybe a few penalization points for their violations, Tuttosport suggests.
