Are Juve already in a better position to land the next scudetto?

June 26, 2022 - 9:10 am

Juventus have lost some key players already this summer, whilst Paul Pogba’s return is believed to be all-but done, but I would argue that we are already in a better position to win the Italian division this season than in the last.

I don’t think we need luck on Spinsify to be topping the table this season with the way our squad is at present, knowing that both Pogba and Chiesa will be fit and ready to go in August.

Giorgio Chiellini will be a big loss in the dressing room, but his fitness levels have been wavering for a number of years and the injuries have been on the increase too. While I won’t downplay his impact for us last season or even moreso in any of the previous years, but it was time to allow him to go.

Paulo Dybala is another who will be missed, but he is also one who struggles to remain fit on the long-term. He was a truly special player, but Federico Chiesa returning from injury will have a bigger impact on our ability to win games, and the addition of Pogba is going to be a massive boost for us.

I believe the Frenchman will be the making of our side. He knows how to unlock a defence with the pass, and with Vlahovic and Chiesa making those runs to feed off of him, the sky is very much the limit for this side. We have other stars in our side who will thrive also, with the likes of Denis Zakaria and Manuel Locatelli likely to up their game alongside the World Cup winner.

The Serbian striker did enough to warrant his monster move from Fiorentina, and it seems glaringly obvious to me that his talents will be unleashed after a full pre-season with his teammates where they can learn to play off each other and build into one cohesive unit.

Of course, there will be further incomings and outgoings this summer, but I believe adding Pogba and allowing the others to leave already leaves us in a better place overall, and am excited to see how far this team can go in the league, as well as in the Champions League.

The two Milan sides are the obvious danger, and despite the fact that we finished fourth last term, the bookmakers already make us and Inter as the favourites to lift the scudetto last term, and I agree that we will be the main two come the end of the season.

Do any of you still have reservations about our credentials ahead of the new campaign?

    Our side might be on its verge to becoming a special one for the next season, it still needs to make some severe changes. I would like to see both Arthur and Rabiot leaving this summer that might lead to additions like Paredes, Di Maria, and Kostic. Personally, I love the idea of uniting Kostic and Vlahovic on a club level. Moreover, Juve will definitely need not one, but two center-backs. The likes of Kolibaly and Milenkovic are the most eyecathing ones. Also, it should be noted that it is possible to lose another key man, De Light. Although he was going to become more important in the upcoming year, he did never justify his price tag.

    Ins: Pogba (already done), Kostic, Paredes, Cambiaso, Koulibaly, Milenkovic

    Outs: De Ligt, Arthur, Rabiot, Sandro, Kean

    No, not yet.
    But there is a big hope for a good transfer window.
    The big worry right now is the status of defense department. If De ligt leaves and you don’t have the right replacements you can’t say that they are in a better position for scudetto.
    And there is a real question mark on Pogba and Chiesa fitness next year.
    So let’s see the inforcements first then decide whether it is a good squad or not.

    We are far from being favorites. The team has too many holes, especially if De Ligt chooses to leave. Our selection of LBs is pathetic, an absolute joke – Serie B level tbh. We’re going to need one, if not two more CBs. We’re very thin in attack as well, so we need Kostic and Di Maria to join (Zaniolo too). Arturd, Fagiot, and Glassmsey should be kicked to the curb – useless turds unworthy of the shirt.
