Juventus will finish the season with their current management, but further changes are expected to come in the summer, and Exor president John Elkann will try to bring back Giuseppe Marotta. The Bianconeri turned to two business executives after Andrea Agnelli stepped down, naming Gianluca Ferrero the president and Maurizio Scanavino the general manager. Instead, Federico Cherubini and Massimiliano Allegri are helming the sports area.
As per La Repubblica, the Old Lady is keen on reuniting with the Inter chief. His departures led to all sorts of troubles. He’s under contract with the Nerazzurri until 2025. He re-upped before the start of the current season. The veteran quickly rubbished the buzz linking him to a return to Turin before Maurizio Arrivabene’s arrival last year. He had suggested in a past interview that he’d work in sports politics once he was done in Milan.
Marotta wouldn’t necessarily supplant the two officials recently appointed by Juventus, as he would join in a different role. He could technically co-exist with Cherubini too. However, the sporting director will likely be let go at the end of the season too, TuttoSport informs. He’s one of the few front office members that isn’t under investigation. Though, the new brass might cut ties with everybody that had connections with Agnelli to start anew.
The Bianconeri also have Napoli’s Cristiano Giuntoli, Lazio’s Igli Tare, and former Torino and Roma Gianluca Petrachi on their radar for the position. They won’t enlist a legend right away in their new board of directors, but they could bring one in later on. Alessandro Del Piero, Giorgio Chiellini, and Claudio Marchisio are the likeliest candidates.
