Juventus January Plan Only Minorly Affected by Shake-Up

Juventus sporting director Federico Cherubini and coach Massimiliano Allegri were unaware of the earthquake that would rock Juventus Monday night. They won’t be impacted by it in the short term. The overhaul stemming from the resignation of Andrea Agnelli and the board of directors will be limited to the corporate portion of the club.

According to Sky, the duo held the rumored meeting to define the transfer market strategy earlier in the afternoon. Then, they had dinner with the president, Pavel Nedved, and Maurizio Arrivabene to discuss what happened.

Juventus won’t be able to make splashy moves anytime soon. The team will have to self-finance until things are settled. They will be able to spend only after selling. Weston McKennie is the most likely candidate to depart. His price tag and suitor could increase thanks to the World Cup.

The Bianconeri are seeking a wing-back that could possibly join on loan with option to buy. If they don’t find one, they might terminate Andrea Cambiaso’s loan spell at Bologna early. He’s left-footed, but he can play on either flank. Or they will adapt their current players to the role to occasionally rest Juan Cuadrado.

Our Take on the Juventus Move in January

The resignations truly came out of the blue if not even the sports side of the team was in the know. It shouldn’t change things much, though. It was already pretty clear that the Bianconeri would be bargain-hunting in the next window.

As for their need on the flanks, Mattia De Sciglio is coming back from injury, and they can explore using Federico Chiesa in such position for a few matches before eventually making a late cheap addition or bringing back their youngster.
