How Danilo is the key to Juventus attempt to sign a new left-back

August 29, 2022 - 6:30 pm

Juventus allowed Luca Pellegrini to leave the club on loan to Eintracht Frankfurt weeks ago.

The youngster had been the club’s main rival to Alex Sandro for the left-back spot.

His departure means the Brazilian no longer has competition for a place in the Bianconeri team.

However, it makes little sense for Juve to have just one left-back for the entire campaign.

A report on Calciomercato reveals that the Bianconeri considers Danilo one player that can fill in that position.

However, it is not the only spot the former Manchester City player can play.

It claims he can also play in midfield and central defence, meaning Max Allegri now has an option for each of those positions.

However, the Juve gaffer could decide to use him predominantly as a centre-back.

In this case, they might be forced to sign a new left-back, even though Mattia De Sciglio can also fill in at that spot.

Juve FC Says

We need to have a solid squad in place before this transfer window closes because it would be a very long season.

Ideally, every spot on our team should have at least two players. Danilo’s versatility means he can play in several positions, but if there are too many injuries, he would still not cover more than one spot per game.

    We 100% need a new left back!
    Danilo and De Sciglio are best on the right side.
    End of discussion.

    We need a LB or another CB ASAP.

    LB should have been a priority months ago. We leak goals on the left every game with Sandro and at times De Sciglio there. Pellegrini should not have been allowed to go out on loan. #AllegriOut

      How do know that it was Juve’s choice. Sometimes the player asks for the loan if they know they won’t get enough playing time. We need to get the full story before we always jump to conclusions.

    They don’t need a left back. They need to play with what they have. 3-4-3 and 3-5-2 formation. Allegri is too stuck in his ways. All these stupid coaches are stuck in their ways. You make due with what you have. You don’t try to fit a square peg in a circular hole or vice versa.

      These formations would eleviate the defensive issues caused by Sandro on the left flank. Play kostic as a wing back on the left when 3-5-2. And when you use Sandro at least the defense won’t matter as much because you have the three CB’s. And they don’t need an extra CB because they can use Danilo.
