No champions, no parties. That goes for the counts, but probably not for Adrien Rabiot. Massimiliano Allegri’s protégé is increasingly inclined to dismiss Manchester United’s advances for the second straight season. So much so that Juventus are growing optimistic about the outgoing Frenchman’s 12-month contract extension, with Continassa hoping to secure the signing by the end of the week. A real hit. Especially if you consider that the exclusion from the premier division of the 2023-24 cup, which is due to the penalty (-10 points) in the league imposed by sports justice for the fictitious capital gains trend, Juventus around eighty million euros will cost missed UEFA prizes (about 70 million on average over the last 11 seasons, peaking at 110 million in the 2016/17 season) and whopping stadium receipts. Very high bill: over the past decade, a quarter (25%) of the Juventus club’s revenue has depended on the Champions League. For all these reasons, as already emerged from the first negotiations of the Juventus managers, the Signora market will be a self-financing market. Selling for at least 100 million, significantly reducing wage costs and refreshing Allegri’s team by buying players with human costs and viable wages. The replacement of Arkadiusz Milik from Marseille and the first goal (Timothy Weah from Lille) go in that direction. One of the few exceptions, as mentioned in midfield. Rabiot is reported in detail. But should, for one reason or another, something go wrong in the last corner, the Bianconeri will attack Sergej Milinkovic Savic, whose contract at Lazio expires in 2024.
In the meantime, the lady’s salary has already been reduced by around thirty million gross due to the departure at the end of the contract for Angel Di Maria and Juan Cuadrado and the non-replacement of Leandro Paredes, who has returned to PSG. Awaiting some necessary sacrifices in the name of the budget – from Vlahovic to Chiesa but also watch out for Bremer (Tottenham press) – Juventus are now focused on cutting costs by ‘cutting’ layoffs. From Alex Sandro, who is especially hoped for in Arabia, through Arthur, followed by Roberto De Zerbis Brighton. After Tottenham’s 30m for Kulusevski, the Bianconeri are hoping to raise around fortym with the sales of Zakaria (West Ham in pole) and McKennie (Galatasaray in pressing), returning from Premier League loans to Chelsea and Leeds.
