    Great piece of business by the team, bought for 10million, sold for 20. Given the recent acquisitions and the money spent, the team has also sold well. I think this is a blueprint for a successful Mercato, at worst we spend 10-15 million more than we sell. This is pocket change honestly, great work Beppe! Now bring on Cancelo!!

      Bonucci for 41m is nowhere near a blueprint mate. But except this deal we have one of the best mercato ever.

        I think everyone is over Bonnucis sale, while we could’ve gotten another 25 million for him it’s still not a bad deal by all means. I actually think Caldara has a higher potential cap than Leo, it somewhat weakened us but the gameplay is going to be different. For once Juventus actually have good wingers and will no longer rely on gameplay to build up from the CB’s. Besides it’s all downhill at his age anyway.

            caldara, rugani or their potential cap, doesnt matter much as long as 30years old benatia will start the game and juve still hunting on a new foreign CB.
            juventus have forgoten that the last UCL they won it with only 3 foreign players in their skuad.
            if you talking about grinta to play 90minutes + 15×2 and penalty shootout you cant ask that with the foreign players but yet we kept bringing the players who want to play for money just like juve 2008s the merchenary club

            i see your point.You can ask MANU fans about mercenary club lol, they keep spending like fucks but last time they didnt even make 1/16 lol. I dont know how much you know about Juve but if you dont know , we bought and already own a lot of talented italians-Caldara, Orsolini, Mandragora, Rugani, Kean, Bernardeschi, Romagna, so not as bad as you think.
