Juventus Interested in Poaching Milan Director Massara

Juventus are expected to bring in a new executive at the end of the season, either to replace or join current sporting director Federico Cherubin, and Frederic Massara is one of the options in their crosshairs. He has strong ties with coach Massimiliano Allegri, La Gazzetta dello Sport informs.

While the chief isn’t under investigation, the new Bianconeri brass might continue to clean house. They couldn’t afford a void at the position with the January window just around the corner. He and the gaffer will lead the sports area for the next six months. Afterward, their permanence will strictly hinge on the team’s results.

Massara and Allegri played together at Pescara a few years back, and they could reunite at Juventus. After spending time at Palermo, Inter, and Roma, the official has been Paolo Maldini’s right-hand man in the past few seasons. He signed a three-year extension with Milan last summer.

The exec collaborated with Walter Sabatini and is touted to be an excellent scout. He contributed to signing Javier Pastore, Miralem Pjanic, Mike Maignan, and Fikayo Tomori over the years.

Our Take on Juventus and Massara

The fact that a new name pops up almost weekly means that the Old Lady is ways away from deciding whom to hire. Surely Allegri seems to be hustling to have one of his guys at the top. But the new decision-makers will have to deal with the legal troubles first and then decide what to do with Cherubini and the CEO position. The picture will be clearer at that point.
