Juventus have begun rejuvenating the squad

In the spring we figured out that Juventus Turin footballers’ age is the main reason of the loss in responsible matches of the Champions League. Therefore, Bianconeri during this transfer window have begun conducting policy of rejuvenating the squad.

The indicator of the launched process is the departure of Gianluigi Buffon. The Old Lady’s goalkeeper said goodbye to the supporters at the end of the triumphant season in Serie A and Coppa Italia. According to different information, Buffon may continue his performance in PSG or go to make money to the Far East of the USA. Nevertheless, the work has not ended on that.

Juventus head coach Massimiliano Allegri has stayed in the club to once again build the team, which would win the golden double in a row. For that, the Italian invited Genoa goalkeeper Perin to replace Buffon. The 25-year old goalkeeper made whitewash elven times for the past season, which is a decent statistics for the average from Genoa.

Stephan Lichtsteiner also left the team, having moved to Unai Emery in Arsenal. THe right defender position raised questions, as the Swiss was 33 years old at the moment of his performance for the Old Lady, Barzagli was 36 and the 24-year old De Sciglio was defiantly replaced in the middle of the first half in the second leg of the Champions League with Real.

The offense requires upgrade, as Mandzukic and Higuain do not get any younger and Dybala is constantly of interest for the grandees. Because of that, Juventus bought out Douglas Costa’s contract from Bayern for 40 million Euros to have an opportunity to rotate the squad and also claims Robert Lewandowski. The Pole will be a replacement for Higuain, if the Argentine decides to leave Stadio Allianz. The middle zone has strengthened with Emre Can, who has been intending to move to Turin since January and also Bianconeri are seriously interested in the purchase of Milinkovic-Savic from Lazio. La Gazetta Dello Sport wrote that Juventus has offerd the Eagles 80 million Euros, while the Romans have demanded at least 120.

However, these are trifles against the backdrop of the mechanism of squad rejuvenation, launched by Allegri. Juventus are moving in the right direction, making a castling of experienced players with new ones pointwise. Whereas the clear backbone remains, consisting of Chiellini, Marchisio, Sandro and Pjanic. The titans of the football world are conducting a battle for the players, however, Juventus know better than anyone, how to withhold necessary footballers.
