5. Retain the core
If you brush the Adrien Rabiot’s and Alex Sandro’s of Juventus aside, what manifests is a sparkling young core laden with talent.
Perpetual short-term thinking amid the club’s glorious reign of Calcio supremacy eventually left Allegri, Sarri and even Pirlo with unbalanced, ageing squads. Essentially, horrid mismanagement at the top culminated in Juve’s recent mess and the necessity to rebuild.
However, steps have been taken in the transfer market since 2019 to develop a younger, fresher and hungrier squad. The transfer policy has been altered for the greater good with Matthijs de Ligt, Federico Chiesa, Manuel Locatelli and Weston McKennie all joining the club in recent years.
Alongside Dybala, this young core is imperative to Allegri’s second project, however long that lasts, and the club must do everything they can to retain all of their prized young assets this year.
Tying down Dybala to a long-term extension is an early priority. Then, in the summer, you can expect the Bianconeri to come under immense pressure from Mino Raiola regarding the services of De Ligt. Alongside signing a new number nine, keeping hold of the Dutch destroyer should be Juve’s priority.
