With the sudden departure of Antonio Conte, it seemed that the transfer plans for Juventus could undergo radical changes. However since Conte has been replaced by Max Allegri the club seems to be pursuing the same targets. One of these is Alvaro Morata. There were rumors that Morata no longer wanted to come to Juve once Conte resigned, but those proved to be unfounded and newer reports of Allegri giving his arrival the approval soon surfaced.
Now, multiple reports from both GianlucaDiMarzio.com and La Gazzetta dello Sport have stated that the deal is more or less done. Di Marzio said the clubs exchanged “official e-mails” and were more or less there, while Gazetta said straight in their headline “it’s done” (e’ fatta.)
According to la Gazzetta, Morata has also given his approval for the transfer. The fee is reportedly 18 million euros, with Real Madrid owning a 36 million euro buyback clause.
While the coaching change may have put Juve in a state of flux, the Morata transfer could serve as a re-assurance to the fans that the Juventus project is still going forward as normal, albeit with Allegri and not Conte.
Tomorrow should be the official announcement, so stay posted to JuveFC.com for that news.
Well, welcome to Juve Morata!
Evra will follow next. Pastore, Jovetic are both on Allegri’s wish list
Lets make the best out of that then. Big name means we sell shirts and he might bring some experience to our future LB
No one buys left back shirts. Let alone an Evra shirt.
Not a fan either, but ppl buy anything with a big name on it
goodbye Antonio Conte , Goodbye Sanchez, Goodbye Iturbe , Goodbye Scudetto 2014/2015 , Goodbye Champions League , I hope that one day we will say Goodbye to B.Marotta too. Marotta is destroying 3 beautiful years by signing Max Allegri.
And maybe a Goodbye Agnelli
looking back at this management, they started off terrible. then agnelli picked conte to be the new manager and there was a lot of uncertainty of how he would perform. things went how they did. what baffles me is why they wouldn’t go for someone similar? someone who has the grinta, someone who wants the team to fight for every ball and give their all. even worse, why did they kick out alessio and carrera? if nothing more, they could have helped allegri since they know the team and have that juve passion and desire to win.
The only good part in this vid: A fit Pepe running 😀
He lools freaken weird wearing shorts
He looks like a freaking emu walking around its like he cant believe they picked him
haha He and Tevez are like, “WTF is this fool saying?”
He’s already wearing his annoying face…
Maybe a stupid question, but who is the guy wearing the mask?
I think with Conte gone Lichtsteiner wont be so winded all the time lol.
I think that’s just Lichtsteiner, he was the same at the WC with Switzerland :p
Apparently the board offered allegri pereyra and he accepted it. Fuck. More average players. If padoin and pepe aren’t sold and we get pereyra, we’re done for
Oh god. Pereyra offers nothing, why is it that only fans see this and not the people who actually need to see it.
Padoin and Pepe indeed need to go, good thing is that Quags is gone though. At least they sold some dead wood. Pray they don’t bring De Ceglie back too
In my opinion, Juve should focus on Criscito now. He’s Italian, a pretty good winger (exactly what we need), desperate to leave Russia and go backto Italy and willing to take a paycut in order to do that.
Even Marotta should see this as a great option
I really dont know about Criscito…
But I guess that it wouldn’t be so bad to get him back.
Not my top transfer target, but taking everything in consideration, I think it would be a killer move to get him. Fits right into the JuvItalia philosophy and he’s really desperate to return to Serie A to get called up for the Squadra again, he’s practically begging Milan to go for real for him.
I’d totally hijack that deal
By the way, is there any news on Osvaldo and De Ceglie? I want neither at the club next season
Osvaldo is already out. Remember he was only on loan. Inter is his next probable destination.
Yeah I know, I meant at as: I hope we don’t use the option to buy him 😛
Im sure that ship has sailed… Plus the asshole lied about renting a jack sparrow costume.
Hhahahaha what an ass :DD
Ahh.. But no we have not bought him. Thankfully!! 😀
Yeah indeed, that would have been too much to handle, we’ve had enough shit for the rest of the season already xD
Inter…. He’s gonna score in the Derby d’Italia for sure..
Now reading Allegri wants Wesley Sneijder.. Oh god no.
Why is that a bad thing? Wes is a great player.
I dont want a 30+ former merda player to play all our games when we have midfielders enough to play in the centre already
He’s had his best years. His best year was 2010. Carrying Inter to the CL trophy and Holland to the World Cup final. We are now 4 and when the season starts almost 5 years further and he’s over his top. He showed that at this world cup, despite growing into the tournament and starting our comeback against Mexico, he didn’t show he can still be of use to us.
High wages too, no?
Most likely. Not to mention they say he’ll cost 20million too. Insanity
High wages and a spoiled wife that will want everything with a discount.
He wont come. Please no!
I doubt it. After the CL they won he had a terrible experience with Inter. I doubt he’s gonna take another Italian club. And not to mention we should stand above these kinda players. The Drogba deal didn’t happen either.
Grosso has confirmed that Coman was brought in for the first team.
Thats cool, I like the amount of youth we have now
Where would he play in Allegri’s system, assuming it’s 4-3-1-2? I always thought he was a winger
He can play CAM
Now that I think of it, I feel allegri taking over won’t necessarily be a bad thing. Obviously he is not conte, but imagine how motivated he must be to prove his worth as a coach. Besides his 4-3-1-2 formation is tactically sound. It would also allow all of marchisio, vidal,pirlo and pogba to start. Especially if we convert pogba to a trequarista where i think he could really succeed. He is also great at integrating youth players into the team. Look at what he did with El Sha, de sciglio, and niang. This could mean decent playing time for coman, marrone, and others. Guys, its not like we got rid of all our players, they can still get the results. If we manage to keep pogba and vidal, WE WILL WIN THE SCUDETTO hands down. Roma and may be strong but they dont have the depth to compete in seria a, cl and the coppa
But will we have enough depth…
I think we have enough depth, but not enough quality. No real game winners
I prefer Vidal as a trequartista. The final third is his territory. I feel Pogba will be anonymous higher up the pitch. His opening up and overall movement off the ball is utter sh*t imo. Better to have him closer to the defender where he can have more space and be that extra option when teams decide to tightly mark Pirlo. Plus hes great at winning the ball back, but lazy to drop back and cover space. This way he wont have to drop back too far.
Im still very pessimistic about Allegri. I read that at his last year with Milan, Balo was screaming and yelling at players while Allegri was sitting back not knowing what to do. His preferred formations arent bad at all, but hes a pussy and mediocre coach at best and its completely up to the players whether Turin will be seeing some trophies this year.
As long as it isn’t Marchisio I’m happy about it, he’s far better in his usual position
Vidal would be killer in the treq role, like he is on the NT!
But I actually could see Pogba thrive in that position as well. He can take shots from distance easier that way and his skill on the ball would be good so that he can distribute the ball to the other players when Pirlo is further back in the field.
It’s a win-win with those two guys. Hope they’ll stay!!
But Vidal tackles too well to play that high up, in front of the defense he offers so much protection
Allegri lacks the vision and tactics, whatever we will accomplish will be due to the leftovers of the Conte mentality
it is not about how this shit must be motivated but how he will motivate the players cos he doesnt play but they do, i hope he get sacked by january and Nedved steps over
Actually Roma is starting to look like a pretty solid team!
With Keita and Cole they’ll have great routine and experience (in Champions League too). And with the young ace Salih Ucan they signed along with Emanuelson and Sanabria back from loan they are more of a threat than last year.
It looks like Benatia is staying put too.
Roma have plenty of depth after the signing they’ve made
Yea and they arent done. Rumors linking them to Shaqiri now.
I always liked shaqiri more than iturbe
Well they could end up with both.
Damn if they end up with both… What. A. Team.
(And their manager isn’t half bad either!)
I sort of hope they get him (or us) to help Serie A in the champions league
I really dont mind either… I know we arent getting him anytime soon.
Not nearly as much as us
but they have a great coach
He turned niang to shit. Marchisio is not suited to the trequartista role. 4-3-1-2 is just a more attack minded 3-5-2. Still has the same issues on wing play
I mean in terms of giving Niang first team opportunities. And marchisio shouldn’t be playing in trequarista role in the first place
Gazzetta says that Pereyra would come on loan with an option to buy next summer for 12M.
At least if he comes we wont waste our money.
Read it too. A whole season should be enough to show he ain’t good enough
Or show that he is worth it (if that happens).
He might be another Estigarribia. In and do his thing and then out again
Or that ofcourse, but I don’t really expect it 😛
Meeh, me neither… But I wish him the best if he comes.
Anyone heard the rumors that we want to send Isla to Fiorentina in Exchange for Savic?
That wouldn’t be bad. I really like that Savic guy!
Other rumors (shortly before Conte left) said that Juve are interested in Dória. A huge Brazilian talent dubbed to be the next Thiago Silva.
Havent heard about it, but do we really need another CB? Ogbonna hardly played already and we have Marrone back who also plays CB
Yea we do. Barzagli and Chiello are usually injured. Plus i dont wanna see Marrone at cb anymore, let him play cm… And the reason for him playing cb i feel was because of his passing.
Savic would be a good signing, right? Or am I the only one liking him.. haha
I think an isla-savic swap would be good, though a straight up swap isn’t usually seen
Never seen him play or read anything on him… But if i remembered correctly, it was Conte who didnt want him… Hmm
Ogbonna is on his way. Probably in a deal with Lazio to bring Candreva to Juve.
But I think that Barzagli is past his prime and need to go too sometime soon. I bet that we will use Caceres as a backup rightback and CB if needed.
So in reality we only have Chiellini, Bonucci and Barzagli.
Marrone should play midfield and midfield only. He’s not a defender and that showed clearly when he was used as a CB by Conte.
Im curious to see how Bonucci does in a four man backline. Hes been covered by Barzagli and Chiellini since Conte s arrival. I hope he doesnt revert to the form of the days of Del Neri
Yeah me too.. But somehow I think thay he have matured and learned so much from those two. I think he is a much more solid defender than he was 3 years ago. He just needs to be careful with his runs into the midfield to pass the ball.
If he does return to that form, he’ll be a guaranteed starter. Allegri will make sure of that
Yeah I don’t think Barzagli will last much longer either, but if Ogbonna indeed leaves it sounds like a good trade. I also prefer Marrone in CM but yeah, he was played as CB 😛
I saw Ogbonna + 23m to bring in Candreva. Not official though
What, that would be far too much. 23mill alone is already too much
I think they said Lazio has him valued around 35m which is pretty damn high
Lazio management just as drunk as ours if they think anyone will pay that for Candreva. He’s good but not that good
Well Lazio are in no rush to sell their players, so they could afford to price him around there
They can, but nobody will pay it :p
it would be total stupid, candreva has no way such a price.
That’s waay to much. I thought it would be something like 10-15M + Ogbonna…
Even that is really much, Ogbonna was 15mill, Ogbonna and max +5mill and thats stretching it already
Worst. Deal. Ever.
Hearing rumours that madrid would need to sell isco and di maria to fund a move for james rodriguez, if this is true juve should definitely go for him as he would be perfect in the trequarista role
Lol we’d all love it but do you really think the management would spend for a player like isco? No they’d much rather get players like pereyra
The sad truth
Di Maria?? Yea not gonna happen.
Lol none of the players you mentioned would want Juve
Im sure they would… But there is a f*ck eyed douche in the way of it all.
But we wouldn’t be able to afford their wages
I’d love either one but we have the beast pereyra instead. A hamster probably
Isn’t di maria off to PSG for 60mil?
Looks like we’ve signed Pereyra… More average garbage
What did this guy actually do that makes Juve like him so much..
he has an exotic footballers name?
Maybe he proposed a co-ownership to start with
omg not them deals again haha
I suppose he would be a good sub, but for no more than 12m euros
We already have a crap sub named Padoin, we don’t need another 😛
If they want to throw away 12mill, I’ll give them my bank account number
to be fair to Pereyra, he’s much better than Padoin
He’s not even worth 10mil. We could get shaqiri for 20mil
so apparently udinese want 20mil for pereyra. we’re sending them sorenson and two more youth players and then we’ll take pereyra on loan with a forced buy out of 12mil. WTF?!?!?
Who are the others????
Link to this. Please
Marotta needs to get shot, like now.
Do you think that rusty scissor of yours can handle 2 people? Allegri is first and then Marotta. It’s gonna be hard breaking through his eye though…
What..the actual fuck is this
Ive read its not forced, its optional, but we pay 1.5m for the loan.
I’ve been seeing a lot of Juve “fans” comment so negative about the change and yet they don’t remember they were as negative when Conte was appointed. Allegri will do just fine. He has a very competent team. Milan failure is due to bad decisions on the executives part (transfers). However, they made the best decision on appointing Inzaghi, which I see will bring Milan back to the top. Inzaghi is an innovative coach. It is good to see more italian teams becoming stronger as it will raise the italian league presence in europe and ultimately bring back the prestige the league once had.
But our Executives are doing just as wrong at the moment as Milan’s did.
Marco – It was inevitable that Conte was going to leave us one day. He is not a Ferguson or even Lippi type of coach. He is more of come, get the job done and leave coach. He had said he never ruled out managing other top teams in europe when there was a lot of speculation a year ago if he was staying or leaving. I do think he is a great coach due to his ability to bring success. I see him as a coach hungry for success but not in building a legacy at one club. For instance, I do see him coaching Real Madrid in the future.
The thing is there is still so much Conte couldve done with this club.
Conte said if the rest of management werent as serious as he was, he would leave… Look what happened:
He leaves and Juve are again linked to Pereyrra and Savic, two of whom(or at least one)Conte rejected.
Yeah I agree with you on Conte. We all knew that he wasn’t going to stick around forever. But I dont believe that he resigned just suddently like that. He was fired and his face tells that too in the goodbye message.
The sudden departure left us all with more anger than sadness and understanding.
But now I’m thinking that by selling Vidal and Pogba (which they probably will) is like Milan selling Ibra and Silva. Not to mention the retarded aquisitions like Evra and Pereyra. And in that fashion the Executives are just as bad.
Yes, I think those names do not increase the quality of our defensive department. The only reason why I may think the management would want Evra is if they want to add depth with an experience player. However, I don’t see that worthwhile at this time.The executives intentions will be revealed in how well they handle the pressure regarding Pogba and Vidal. I don’t see Vidal leaving the club, because he loves the team, it depends wether the club still has him in their plans or not. I am disappointed with the decision not to acquire Berardi. He has the potential of a worldclass forward. I can see it in his touch the making of a great finisher.
Between Pogba and Vidal, I’d cash in on Pogba now. 70-80M.
IF, (big IF) Marotta gets his head out of his ass, then we could re-invest in some serious players.
20M Ricardo Rodriguez = left back covered.
20M Xherdan Shaqiri = wing/trequartista role covered
And then 25-30M for Benatia (unrealistic, but my dream cb to join Juve).
And keep Giovinco, because I believe he will shine on the wing in a potential 4-3-3. = Money saved.
And after all this there would still be money to put into players like Evra, Morata, Berardi (other half), etc.
Come on Juve! Hire me to handle the money!!
There were was far less negativity when Conte was appointed as coach, far less. Just because we bash the incompetent management and clown of a coach they hired doesnt mean we dont love the club with all our heart.
Who was negative about the Conte appointment? Conte was unproven, Allegri has already shown he’s a ad coach.
I’d very much prefer Inzaghi over Allegri
When we signed Conte, it was our last resort. No coach wanted to be at Juve simply because we looked terrible. Now, on the other hand, Juve is one of the best projects in Europe with some of the best players. We should have done better appointing a coach because I’m sure many world class coaches would’ve wanted to come.
No. There was uncertainty because he was unproven but being a club legend and someone with the juve spirit people were willing to give him a chance. Allegri has proved to be shit, someone who gives up easily, plays defensive, and poor man management.
r u crazy or just so stupid?
Your response holds no merit.Instead of insulting, you should explain yourself.
LOL 35m euros for Candreva hahahahahahahahahahahaa
Hahaha that’s the most overpriced bullshit ever. If Isco, a 22 year old who’s bettter than Candreva in his role, is 30m how the fuck is Candreva 35m?
ask Lotito lol
OFFICIAL: Juventus have signed Carlos Blanco – 18 year old, former Barca prospect, very talented from what i’ve read – surprisingly good crosser of the ball for one so young – Full story https://www.juvefc.com/official-juventus-sign-carlos-blanco/
For the Primavera I assume?
PLEASE GET US ISCO!!!! PLEASE MAROTTA GET US ISCO!!!!!!!!!!!
And that would be our solution to a treq.
Looking at Roma, they’re in a much worse financial situation than us yet they’re making signings worthy of a big club. What the fuck is Marotta doing? Pereyra for fucks sake???? If it’s a loan I’m fine with it but anything like the reported 20m and Marotta will be recognized as the worst director for me.
Yeah we really need a new director.
Isco would seriously be a great option for us. He’s young and from what I’ve seen is one of the best in his role. It’s a shame Madrid are pushing him out of the squad. He deserves better. With their signing of Kroos and maybe Rodriguez he won’t get any playing time and I’m sure they will offload him for a good price. His value has probably gone down from the 30m they bought him for after he got little to no playing time last season. I’d say he’s worth a max of 25m and if we could get him it would be perfect for Allegri’s system.
I reaaaaally doubt that he’s within our reach….
We all know Marotta. If there’s another bidder, he’s out! And both Milan and Liverpool are pursuing him.
Every Madrid player deserve better. Even the stars except for Ronaldo get pushed out of the squad when they start to like some other guy. I’m honestly suprised Benzema is still #1 there.
It’s really sad. Players like Modric, Di Maria, Isco, Khedira, Alonso, and Kroos shouldn’t be fighting for a spot. Imagine if all these players were spread out in different clubs across Europe? It would make everything way more competitive. I mean, Madrid have like 11 top of the line midfielders and only use like 5 of them.
