Juve’s fullback regrets: Four transfer targets that went elsewhere

September 18, 2022 - 11:59 pm

Despite the team’s shaky start to the campaign, Federico Cherubini and company did well to bolster Max Allegri’s squad during the summer transfer market.

But while the management was able to fill the majority of holes within the team, the fullback department remained unaddressed, with the only new arrival being Andrea Cambiaso, who didn’t even remain for the campaign.

Therefore, the manager only has four fullbacks at his disposal, including the struggling Alex Sandro and his unconvincing alternative Mattia De Sciglio.

However, ilBianconero points out to the fact that Juventus missed the boat on four impressive fullbacks who would have surely added some strength to the declining department.

First on the list in Nahuel Molina. The right-back was reportedly close to signing for Juventus, but Atletico Madrid eventually won the race by offering Udinese the services of Nehuen Perez.

The Bianconeri were also tracking another Udinese wingback in Destiny Udogie. But since the Zebrette were adamant on maintaining the youngster’s services for another campaign, Fabio Paratici came forward with the right formula, securing a deal that would see the teenager joining Tottenham next season.

Juventus were also interested in the services of Germany international David Raum, but he eventually left Hoffenheim to sign for RB Leipzig.

Finally, Owen Wijndal was one of the Raiola/Pimenta clients who the Old Lady was keeping tabs on. But at the end of day, the exciting Dutch fullback sealed a switch to Ajax.

    Complete incompetence by Juve’s management. The full back positions, especially LB, have been a sore point for Juve for 3 years now, yet there has been no interest in bolstering those areas. And I won’t even mention letting Cancelo and Spinazzola leave the club! Utter incompetence.

    The best players are expensive and with the wage freeze, Juve will never be able to afford those who offer quality on the pitch…it’s a reality…certainly efforts have been made but these are not big enough to field a strong team.

    Very true Cancello was and is still a star and even Demiral is doing quite well.
    It’s a pity to see Juve in this situation. It’s the deepest they can go !!

    It is the other way around. These players are lucky not to join this crap team with their clown coach. More prospect inside Juve’s current team will also realize this and will try to salvage their career. Allegri not deserve their talents.
