According to reports in Italy, there could be significant changes at Juventus from next season: with a new President and a new sporting director.
The Old Lady will miss out on their tenth Scudetto in a row and are fighting for a top-four finish.
There are growing reports suggesting Andrea Pirlo will leave Juventus at the end of the campaign, regardless of their final placement.
Massimiliano Allegri was spotted in Turin yesterday and he is regarded as the leading candidate to replace the former midfielder in the Juventus dug-out from next season.
As per La Gazzetta dello Sport, former Juventus defender Andrea Barzagli could join Allegri’s staff.
However, Pirlo is not the only one who could pay a high price for Juventus’ poor results this term.
Exor CEO John Elkann visited Juventus’ training centre on Wednesday and had a meeting with Andrea Agnelli, Fabio Paratici and Pavel Nedved.
Agnelli, one of the principal architect of the collapsed Super League, could be removed from his role and according to several reports Alessandro Nasi is in pole position to become the Old Lady’s Chairman from next season.
Paratici and Nedved will see their contracts expire in June and their future is in doubt.
Allegri’s return to the Allianz Stadium see both directors leave as they pushed Agnelli to sack the coach in 2019 and the Tuscan tactician is not on good terms with neither of them.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Napoli sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli is one of the candidates to replace Paratici, while other outlets claim David Trezeguet could return to the club with Alessandro Del Piero.
La Gazzetta dello Sport reports the return of Inter CEO Beppe Marotta is also on the cards if Agnelli leaves Juventus.
The Old Lady’s possible revolution will also concern some players.
The future of Cristiano Ronaldo remains up in the air and the Portuguese star has reportedly tasked his agent Jorge Mendes with the job of finding a new club for 2021-22.
Meantime, Paulo Dybala’s future remains uncertain as the Argentinean hasn’t reached an agreement to extend his contract expiring in 2022.
