Italian club Juventus have been linked with big amount moves for Bayern Munich’s Mario Mandzukic or Liverpool’s Luis Suarez during the transfer window early next year. The Bianconeri are expecting to add on their striking choices with Mirko Vucinic awaited to leave at the seasons end and they are also keeping a close eye on 2 of the biggest footballers in Europe.
After pursuing Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente for a long time, Juventus finally managed to sign the striker in the summer on a free transfer from the Spanish club. He agreed to move to the Italian club back in January itself.
However, the move to the Italian champions has not been a smooth transition for the Spaniard, who has struggled to hold down a first-team spot at the club. He has also failed to score a league goal up until the weekend’s match against Hellas Verona. In the match against Hellas Verona, Llorente finally scored his first goal for Juventus.
Juventus have strengthened their attack substantially by bringing in the likes of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente during the summer transfer window. Juventus manager Antonio Conte acknowledged that the strikeforce of the team needed to be strengthened substantially in order to challenge for the Champions League title.
Llorente arrived on a free transfer, while Carlos Tevez was a £ 10 million signing from Manchester city. Juventus already have one of the strongest midfield in Europe due to the presence of players like Andrea Pirlo and Vidal.
Juventus will be going into the new season as the champions, and they will be looking to repeat the feat for a third successive campaign. They could be one of the few teams who have managed to win the Italian Serie A title thrice in succession.
Aside from going for the league title, Antonio Conte has said that he also wants the club to do well in the Champions league as well. Recently, Juventus were announced as the biggest winners of the Champions League campaign last season because they collected more than £ 55 million in prize money.
Juventus manager Antonio Conte has said that he would one day like to manage in the Premier league. The Italian has led Juventus to back-to-back league titles and he is one of the revered managers in world football right now. The success that Juventus have achieved in recent years has been coming back to the club after almost a decade.
Despite having a lead in the Italian Serie A table, the champions Juventus have not been at their best in recent weeks. This has allowed their rivals like Napoli and Inter Milan to close the gap at the top of the table.
Juventus have managed just two wins in the last five matches, which has allowed Napoli to come level on points with them. It was only a few weeks ago that Napoli were 10 points behind Juventus. The title seemed only a few months away from the cusp of the current champions, but this poor form has put the title race firmly back on.
The former Italian national team manager Marcelo Lippi has praised the Juventus manager Antonio Conte by saying that he expects the current Italian champions to remain top of the table at the end of this season as well.
The former Bayern Munich and Inter Milan defender Lucio has said that he is extremely keen on leaving the Italian club Juventus either in January or in the summer after falling down the pecking order. Lucio joined the Italian champions in the summer from Inter Milan, with whom he spent three successful years.
Juventus has defeated Siena in a Serie A match played at Stadio Comunale Artemio Franchi on Tuesday. Juventus won the match by a close margin of 2-1. This was the sixth victory for Juventus in the ongoing Serie A League.
Juventus is currently at no. 1 in the Serie A points table with 19 points in 7 matches. Out of the 7 matches that Juventus has played in the Serie A in the current season, it has won 6 and the remaining 1 ended in a draw.
The Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo has said that the club does not only want to succeed in the Champions League this season and are looking to do well in all competitions. Juventus managed to lift the league title for the first time in nine seasons.
They even went unbeaten throughout the season, which was also a record for the current format of the Italian Serie A. As a result, many are predicting that the club will be focusing only on doing well in the Champions League this season, as they have spent a long time waiting to play in this competition.
