Dybala False 9 for Juventus

Juventus use Paulo Dybala as a False 9 flanked by Federico Bernardeschi and Douglas Costa in their final pre-season friendly against Triestina.

The game is a dress rehearsal for next weekend’s Serie A opener with Parma and is played at the Stadio Nereo Rocco.

Cristiano Ronaldo is not involved, as he is still training separately due to muscular issues, while even Coach Maurizio Sarri hasn’t made the trip after a nasty bout of flu.

Sarri can free Douglas Costa

Maurizio Sarri’s arrival can finally free Douglas Costa to show just what he can do at Juventus, argues Kaustubh Pandey.

Dzeko changes everything on the market

Edin Dzeko’s surprise contract extension with Roma has a big knock-on effect for Inter, Napoli, Juventus, PSG, Mauro Icardi, Paulo Dybala and Gonzalo Higuain.

Dzeko had clearly been, along with Romelu Lukaku, the first name on Antonio Conte’s wish-list when he took over at Inter this summer.

His decision to commit himself to the Giallorossi until June 2022 effectively ruins the domino effect of strikers that had been expected to take place.

Chiellini: Icardi 'fantasy football'

Giorgio Chiellini claims the idea of Mauro Icardi at Juventus is ‘fantasy football’ but assures Paulo Dybala does not need any special treatment. “He’s a big boy.”

Paratici: 'Dybala interest and discussions'

Juventus director Fabio Paratici confirmed Paulo Dybala “interest and discussions,” but not that Daniele Rugani and Mario Mandzukic exits were imminent.

Coach Maurizio Sarri made the situation clear in a Press conference when complaining it was “embarrassing” that he had to cut six players from the current group for their Champions League squad.

While Matthijs de Ligt, Merih Demiral, Gianluigi Buffon and Danilo have come in, only Joao Cancelo, Leonardo Spinazzola and Moise Kean have left.

Dybala still has much to give Juventus

Juventus need to think twice before letting a talent like Paulo Dybala leave, as Anthony Barbagallo insists La Joya can shine for Maurizio Sarri.

The recent sales of Italian starlet Moise Kean and Portugal international Joao Cancelo suggests that Juve is heading in entirely the wrong direction. Selling young talents and keeping aged players like Sami Khedira and Gonzalo Higuain means there is no future project in the works over at Turin. However, the bigger picture here is that the Bianconeri are slowly losing their identity.
