Sarri to revitalise Juventus plans

Maurizio Sarri’s plans for Juventus include building the team around Daniele Rugani, Miralem Pjanic, Federico Bernardeschi and Gonzalo Higuain.

Many players reportedly had felt marginalised and stifled by Max Allegri’s tactics and selection choices, but with a new Coach coming in, they have the chance to impress on the pitch again.

According to Tuttosport, Juve will look to rebuild their midfield with Paul Pogba their number one transfer target, while Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic the alternative.

Juventus should pursue Manolas

With an ageing backline, Juventus should target Roma’s Kostas Manolas to resolve the club’s crippled centre-back positions, writes Anthony Barbagallo.

Juventus fans were conscious of the Bianconeri’s midfield problems going into the 2018-19 campaign, but little did they know that their side’s defence would be so disjointed throughout the season. The Italian giant, priding itself on impeccable defending, has never looked so wounded in the backline, especially in the centre-back positions.

With a significant player overhaul expected for the Old Lady this summer, swooping in on Roma’s star centre-back Kostas Manolas could prove to be an intelligent reinforcement for Juve’s defensive crisis.

Rugani agent: 'Risky at Juventus'

Daniele Rugani’s agent claims “it might’ve been easier for him to play regularly at Milan, but he decided to stay at Juventus and risks lacking consistency.”

The defender has long been considered one of the future figures of the Nazionale, but while Alessio Romagnoli is captain at Milan, Rugani struggles to make an impact in Turin.

“A player must never rest on his laurels and Daniele certainly does not,” agent Davide Torchia told Radio Marte.

Old Lady needs rejuvenating

Juventus have put all their focus on to Cristiano Ronaldo, neglecting the weak defence and midfield, argues Emmet Gates.

We’re fast approaching a quarter-century since Juventus last won the Champions League. The latest failure coming from a young, bold and at times a simply irrepressible Ajax side that thoroughly dominated The Old Lady over two legs. To put the wait into some sort of perspective, when Gianluca Vialli hoisted ‘Ol Big Ears high into the Roman sky in May 1996, five of the Ajax starting XI from the second leg weren’t even born.

Agent: 'Rugani deserves Juventus'

Daniele Rugani’s agent believes the defender is worthy of his place at Juventus. “You’re not at this club by chance.”

Rugani recently signed a new contract with Juve and stood in for the injured Giorgio Chiellini during the Bianconeri’s 1-1 draw with Ajax on Wednesday.

“Daniele’s performance was largely satisfactory, as were everyone else’s,” Davide Torchia told Tuttojuve.com.

“Concern about aerial battles is normal when one of the best defenders in the world like Chiellini is missing.
