The problem with Pjanic

With Barcelona, Manchester United and PSG queuing up for Miralem Pjanic, Livio Caferoglu explains why Juventus aren’t doing more to keep the midfielder.

“If you ask my opinion, I’d like to see Miralem Pjanic touch the ball 150 times per game,” Juventus boss Maurizio Sarri famously declared at his official unveiling 11 months ago, resisting a possible reunion with Chelsea and Napoli protégé Jorginho. Eleven months later, however, and the Bosnian is facing an existential crisis in Turin. Despite his struggles adapting to ‘Sarriball’, Pjanic has no shortage of suitors and Juve don’t seem to mind.

Benatia: 'Betrayed by Allegri'

Former Juventus defender Medhi Benatia ‘felt betrayed’ by Max Allegri and saw ‘something strange’ in the Champions League exit to Real Madrid.

The 33-year-old Morocco international is currently playing for Al Duhail in Qatar after leaving the Bianconeri in January 2019, but he is still bitter about the way things ended.

Spalletti and Nainggolan for Newcastle?

Luciano Spalletti is the latest candidate for the Newcastle United job and it’s reported he could bring Radja Nainggolan with him to St James’ Park.

The Premier League club is in the midst of a takeover by a Saudi-backed consortium, replacing current owner Mike Ashley, and it’s believed the new investors will spend big from the start.

That includes bringing in a top coach, but while Max Allegri and Mauricio Pochettino have been mentioned so far, the latest option is Spalletti.

“I am more inclined towards the senior squads to youth ones,” Pirlo told Il Nuovo Calcio Instagram account.

Dybala the jewel in Juve's crown

Less than a year after Paulo Dybala appeared on his way out of Juventus, Adam Summerton believes ‘La Joya’ is now fundamental to the club’s future success. 

Former Palermo owner Maurizio Zamparini knows a thing or two about shopping – much of his personal wealth was built up owning, amongst other things, a chain of department stores. So I guess we shouldn’t be too surprised that he picked up a real bargain back in 2012, investing a club-record €8m in 18-year-old Argentine forward, Paulo Dybala.
