In Serie A, Juventus do not look like they need any help. They have scored in each of their past 39 matches in the league, per Football Italia, and could even claim 100 points this season. But another battle is happening off the field.
The director of Juventus, Giuseppe Marotta, knows that the biggest clubs are taking notice of his players, and he’s flattered. Success on the field is often the envy of others, and interest is natural. It is a reflection of Juventus, who look likely to win a third straight championship, that Manchester United and Barcelona want their players.
The problem is that Juventus could struggle to keep those stars. The club has admitted that every player has his price.
This is not the time for Juventus to give up. There has to be a project here. Right now, Marotta has built a squad so far superior than any other in Italy, and he has invested in prospects—namely Domenico Berardi, who scored four goals against Milan, and Manolo Gabbiadini, who scored his seventh goal for Sampdoria on Sunday.
Let’s investigate the latest batch of rumours that have implications on the summer ahead for Juventus.
