Jonathan Zebina is a competent 23 year old (I think) center/left back who plays with Cagliari and consequently is a target within reach.
The question is whether we wil get him OR Bruno Cirillo from Reggina (starter with the Italian U-21) who's also a central defender- OR both.
If Moggi goes for the last solution that can be interpreted as a sign that Juve is aiming for at least 1 MAJOR purchase, as it was always a priority to get a top-defender this off-season. Getting two more talented central defenders takes us up to 6 centerbacks with Birindellia and Mirkovic to spare, and certainly that would do (although we would still be missing the Cannavaro like signing).
These two defenders is relatively cheap so it frees us to get other priorities.
It's going to be exciting to see the outcome.
Only one additional point here: Note how Juventus will try to keep the squad as Italian as it is now this off season. We might get a few "stranieri" but a few will leave as well, while the Italian contingent will grow, because we need a bigger squad for CL.
We are at the midway stage and the difference with Inter is minimal (2 points). At the beginning of the season I have predicted a close race with Napoli, as I thought they were the most stable squad while there were alot of changes at Inter and Juve, how wrong was I.
Anyway, looking into the...
It is HT with the score 2-0, too bad for Demiral's injury as well as Zaniolo's.
We need to exploit the spaces left by Roma to score the 3rd and kill the match, conceding a goal will leave us on the edge.
Ramsey needs to do more, if he remains quiet I guess Sarri will replace him with Costa...
I really think we should have a new thread. It is a new day. If people disagree, just merge.
Just to get the ball rolling, here are my preferences, I think.
Needs: Nothing major, unless we sell/let go current stars. I am assuming that Pirlo leaves and Tevez stays. I am also assuming that Pogba...
Great to see the attacking trio start again, Demiral also starting! Can't be that excited with Danilo though.
Samp have both Quag and Gabbiadini on the bench, while Audero starts in goal.
For those interested in the history of our club, I've written this article about the Palla D'Oro Moet et Chandon.
It was a "challenge" competition sponsored by the famous French champagne house, and was variously contested by Juve, Inter and Torino amongst others. It became known for its...
