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.

Douglas Costa is an enigma. You never really know what to expect of the Brazilian on the pitch and more recently, he’s unpredictable off the pitch too.

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.

Pjanic: 'Allegri joker, Roma inexplicable'

Miralem Pjanic discussed his rapport with ex-Juventus Coach Max Allegri and “cannot explain” how Roma treated Daniele De Rossi, Francesco Totti and Radja Nainggolan.

The Bosnia international spoke to Vanity Fair about his life, career and relationships, including with former Juve Coach Allegri.

“I have a great rapport with Allegri and we speak often. He just wants to reflect a little on his next step and once he’s made a decision, he’ll have no problem finding a big club.

Cuadrado: 'Juve quicker with Sarri'

Juan Cuadrado admits Juventus “must play more with the ball and move it around much quicker” under Maurizio Sarri after defeat to Atletico Madrid.

The Bianconeri had 27 attempts, although only six were on target, and dominated possession, but were still beaten 2-1 in the International Champions Cup game.

“I am happy with what we did today, as it’s intense work and we are getting better every day,” Cuadrado told Sportitalia.

Juve's Joya short-lived

Paulo Dybala arrived in a blaze of glory and certainly had some highlights, but Elio Salerno feels La Joya never quite delivered on his Juventus promise.

Rewind to June 4, 2015 where a baby-faced Paulo Dybala was in the process of completing his dream move to Italian champions Juventus from mid-table Serie A side Palermo. The transfer fee was sizeable for the then 21-year-old Argentine starlet, €32m payable over four years with potential for a further €8m in bonuses to be included.

What if Pogba had stayed at Juve?

Paul Pogba could’ve become the world’s top midfielder and guided Juventus to the Champions League if he’d stayed, argues Anthony Barbagallo.

While Juve continues to make star signings and acquire the game’s starlets, it seems as though Maurizio Sarri’s squad still needs one more colossal purchase in the midfield area. Securing Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey on free transfers seem to be savvy signings on paper, but is it enough for the Bianconeri to go all the way in Europe?

VIDEO: Sarri's new Juventus

Maurizio Sarri held his first Juventus training session today and there were already very clear differences from Max Allegri’s approach.

The former Napoli and Chelsea boss is known for his possession football and quick passing game, and it is that transformation in philosophy that Juve said they were looking for in hiring him.

Fans noticed that in the clip released by the Juventus Twitter account, Sarri and his staff were telling the players to pass the ball faster, take fewer touches and move it around between them.
