The Italian Serie A has not been spared the dire financial circumstances of the rest of the country. Once able to bring in the very best in the world, Italian clubs are now selling off their best players and trimming their wage bills to make ends meet.
Juventus, who can reap the financial benefits of their club-owned stadium, are in a better situation that the rest of the league, but the Italian financial crisis has hit them too. Many of the moves that have transformed the team in the Antonio Conte era have been Bosmans (Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba, Fernando Llorente) or absurdly cheap transfers that turned golden (Andrea Barzagli).
Club director Giuseppe Marotta has also done a good job investing in young talent, both in Italy and abroad. The team has several players with great potential out on loan to gain the experience they will need to eventually break into Juve's first team.
How have those players developed this season? Let's look at some of the best of the bunch and see what they've done with their loan clubs this season.
