Allegri’s Juventus taking shape: How will the team line up next season?

July 14, 2022 - 11:15 pm

Despite a host of arrivals and departures, Juventus still have some business to conduct on the transfer market for the rest of the summer.

Yet, Max Allegri’s team is already beginning to take shape, especially following the signings of Paul Pogba and Angel Di Maria.

As we all know, the Italian manager tends to tweak his formation and could change tactical lineups throughout the course of the campaign.

Nevertheless, the former Milan and Cagliari has a 4-3-3 formation in mind, and la Gazzetta dello Sport (via ilBianconero) already has a projected lineup.

The source believes that once Federico Chiesa recovers from his ACL injury, he will take the left wing with Angel Di Maria on the opposite flank. Needless to say, Dusan Vlahovic will spearhead the formation.

However, the situation remains slightly uncertain in the middle of the park. The report expects Paul Pogba to play on the left of a three-man midfield and Manuel Locatelli on the right side, suggesting that a new deep-lying playmaker will join the club this summer.

But if the management fails to add a new Regista, then Locatelli would serve in the deeper role, while one of Adrien Rabiot and Denis Zakaria acts as a box-to-box midfielder.

    To hell with rabiot, we’re fine with either of McKennie, zakaria or our young lads period. Allegri and his inability to develop youngsters is killing our beloved club

      Amen to that!
      Rabiot and Allegri should get hands and leave.

      1000% he still thinks it`s two points for a win. The new players will defy him and get us wins despite his stone age tactics, but someone like italiano would have us as serious contenders by now.

    rabiot LOL
    when you have fagioli, miretti. ranocchia and rovella. you choose rabbiot??? LOL shocking horror.
    at this point allegri should be banned. he is the problem because he never learned throughout so many season that rabiot guys produced nothing but painful lost.
    also his dream signing of Zakaria offered nothing when a 18yo rookie can play better than him.
    wasting such a money for young player phobia coach is ridiculous.

    I think a 41212 would suit the squad best. Therefore the front 3 wouldnt be predictable and if an attacker is unavailabe they could be replaced by an attacking midfielder eg. Miretti or Fagioli. This lineup would allow us to utilize the full potiential of the midfielders and prevent us from throwing out talent.

    Conclusion: Pogba/Zakaria LCM, Locatelli/Fagioli CM/CDM, Mckennie/Rovella RCM, Di Maria/ Kaio Jorge RW/SS or Miretti/ Fagioli CAM, Chiesa/ Kaio Jorge LW/SS or Miretti/ Fagioli CAM and Vlahovic/ Kaio Jorge ST.

    As for the defense…may God help us.

    I pray to God that Rovella, Fagioli and Miretti will make life extremely difficult for Allegri. If our National team coach is selecting these players why hell not Allegri. He is the only person who needs to improve. I wish we had Italiano as our coach. We are sick and tired of Allegri damaging our highly sort out youth players.
