Having won three successive Italian titles, this summer has been a tumultuous one for Serie A giants Juventus, the Turin side still in shock from the abrupt resignation of Antonio Conte.
The Bianconeri looked to quickly steady the ship, almost immediately bringing in former Milan boss Massimilano Allegri.
It remains to be seen how Conte’s exit has affected the Old Lady’s transfer policy, but director general Beppe Marotta has already presented a number of new arrivals. Among them was the capture of Patrice Evra, the French international joining the club late last month.
According to Juve’s official website, the 33-year-old has moved from Manchester United for a fee of £1.2 million, to be paid in two separate instalments. The deal also includes an additional payment of £300,000 should La Madama qualify for the 2015-16 Champions League.
Over the following pages is a look at what Evra brings to Juventus, and why his transfer is a perfect fit for the Bianconeri.
