Juventus advised not to bring former midfielder back

July 5, 2021 - 7:30 pm

Former Juventus goalkeeper, Michelangelo Rampulla says he isn’t a fan of returning players and would prefer Juventus doesn’t bring back Miralem Pjanic.

The midfielder left the Bianconeri for Barcelona last summer in exchange for Arthur.

While he was one of the first names on the team sheet at Juve, he has struggled for relevance at Barcelona.

Ronald Koeman seems to prefer other midfield options to him and he has now been tipped to return to Juve.

He enjoyed his best football under the management of Massimiliano Allegri and the boss could sanction his return.

Barcelona wants to cut costs and they are open to allowing him to move to Juve if they can reach an agreement.

However, Rampulla believes players’ returning rarely achieves its purpose and for that reason, Juve would be better of targeting another player instead of bringing him back.

He told Tuttojuve: “I believe very little in returns, only sometimes it has happened that everything went well. Pjanic may not have been sold last year, but it is already over thirty years old and I would say, therefore, to go towards other solutions”.

It remains unclear if the Bianconeri can reach an agreement with Barca over his return considering that they also want to cut costs.

    pjanic was let go because he was bored and didn`t have any enthusiasm on the field, also making mistakes. Misty-eyed nostalgia isa not the way to run a team.

    Juve thinking of bring Pjanic back is a very wrong option. This is one of the reasons juve are always illuminated at an early stage in the champions league. They do not know the right person to buy and to sell.

    Selling Podga, Cancelo, Spinnazola and buying Danilo, Bentannur, Rabiot etc was a vary big mistake.

    My advice as a big Juve fans is;
    Juve should sell:
    Alex Sandro

    Alex Telles
    Paul Pogba OR Sergej Milinković-Savić
    Dani Cavajal

    However this Should be there first 11

    Ronaldo Dybala Chiesa;

    A. Telles Pogba kimmich D.Cavajal;

    Chellinni De-ligt Bonucci
