Juventus Mulling How to Best Utilize Summer Budget

Juventus will soon have the decisive meeting with Thiago Motta to formalize the hiring, but their transfer market strategies have long concurred with the gaffer. He’ll utilize the same scheme he counted on at Bologna, 4-2-3-1, which at times turns into a 4-1-4-1 or a 4-3-3 depending on the formation and the phase of the game, La Stampa informs (via Tuttomercatoweb).

The Old Lady will have about €40M to spend in the summer. The rest will have to come from sales. In that sense, Matias Soulé remains one of the primary candidates to depart. Multiple teams are eyeing him, and he’ll be a pure ‘plusvalenza’ since he cost them peanuts back in the day.

Juventus won’t be able to meet Atalanta’s price tag for Teun Koopmeiners. However, the deal could go through if the counterpart accepted a player in return. Khephren Thuram is the top fallback at the moment.

The Bianconeri are expected to bring in Michele Di Gregorio from Monza. The formula should be a loan with an obligation to buy, which would postpone the disbursement to the next few years. Instead, Bologna are driving a hard bargain for Riccardo Calafiori.

The Old Lady is also eyeing Joshua Zirkzee, which has a €40M release clause. The race goes through the player in this case.

Our Take on Juventus

Their main investment should definitely be in the midfield, more specifically in the Lewis Ferguson role, and unfortunately the Scot isn’t an option. Going after Zirkzee doesn’t make sense if they’ll keep Dusan Vlahovic as rumored.
