Juventus will be ‘ready to buy’ Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic, transfer expert Nicolò Schira told Max Statman exclusively. Schira also talked about potential candidates for Juve’s midfield, players that could leave Turin, an alternative to Vlahovic, Antonio Rüdiger, Matthijs de Ligt and another fan favourite ex-Juventus player.

Juventus have been linked with some midfield reinforcements: Bruno Guimarães, and more recently, Denis Zakaria. What are the chances that one of them comes to Turin in January?

“Juventus really like Guimarães, but he costs a lot. Lyon ask €40M and that’s why this operation is not affordable at the moment for the Bianconeri. Zakaria is a Juventus target, but not only theirs: the Bianconeri are working to close it as soon as they can.” 

According to Max Allegri, Aaron Ramsey will leave this window, but he’s still here. Will he or anyone else leave?

“Ramsey is going to leave Juventus somehow. Allegri doesn’t want to have him, but Ramsey earns a lot (€7M a year), so Juve are looking for a solution in the Premier League, maybe at Crystal Palace… Arthur and Bentancur are keen to leave too. The first one has already reached an agreement with Arsenal, the second one has received a bid by Aston Villa. One of them could leave immediately.” 

Vlahovic to Juventus is a move that has dominated Italian newspapers and websites the last couple of days. Could it happen during the last week of the transfer window or is the summer more likely?

“Juventus has been the first club to ask info for Vlahovic in October, as I anticipated as first. They offered the striker a contract of €6M per year, plus €1M bonus in the next years. His salary will increase year by year. He could stay in Florence this January, because Fiorentina ask €70M in cash. Only Arsenal have offered this price, but Vlahovic has turned down the Gunners’ bid. In the summer, the price will be less than the actual one, because he won’t renew the contract with la Viola. Juventus will be ready to buy him.” 

Another player that has been named for the striker position is Gianluca Scamacca of Sassuolo. Is there a possibilty that he’ll join Juventus this week? And in the summer?

“The Bianconeri would like to sign Scamacca, who will stay in Sassuolo this January. Inter are in pole postion for the Italian striker in the summer.” 

How about the other Sassuolo stars, Giacomo Raspadori and Davide Frattesi?

“Raspadori is a possible target, Frattesi is between Inter and Roma. The Nerazzuri are confident to sign him, the Giallorossi have 30 percent of the resell. At the moment, Juve have only monitored Frattesi, but no talks opened yet.” 

Chelsea defender Antonio Rüdiger and Paul Pogba are both out of contract this summer and have been linked to Juve. What are the odds that we’ll see them in a Juve shirt next season?

“Rüdiger asks a 4 year contract with €10M per year: Juve can’t afford that. I think he’ll go to Real Madrid if he doesn’t extend his contract with Chelsea. Pogba loves Juve and Turin, but he costs too much for the Italian club. You need to give him €20M per year for 4 years.” 

A few weeks back Mino Raiola said that De Ligt was ready for a new step and that he thought so too. Will he leave anytime soon?

“Eyes on the De Ligt situation: Barcelona, PSG and two big Premier League clubs are watching and thinking about buying him. To sell the defender, Juventus ask at least €80M.”

Exclusive interview with Mirko Di Natale on Milinković-Savić saga, Chiesa and Vlahovic future — incomings, departures and more

Max Statman



In an exclusive interview with Mirko Di Natale, a prominent journalist at Tuttojuve, we had the opportunity to delve into the pressing questions surrounding Juventus.

With the transfer market in full swing, fans are eagerly seeking updates on various players and potential targets.

From the potential involvement of Nicolo Rovella in the Milinković-Savić deal to the uncertain futures of Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa, there is much to discuss.

Additionally, the absence of Parisi from Juventus’ radar and the chances of Nicolo Zaniolo joining the club this summer have also piqued curiosity.

Furthermore, the situations of McKennie, Zakaria, and Arthur, who are reportedly likely to leave, are of great interest.

Lastly, the futures of Leonardo Bonucci, Andrea Cambiaso, and Kenan Yildiz at Juventus are subjects that demand attention.

Let’s delve into these questions and gain insights from Mirko Di Natale, a trusted source in the world of Juventus reporting.

1. Milinković-Savić is a hot topic at the moment, my concern is if Nicolo Rovella is involved in the deal. What’s the actual situation for this saga?

“Milinkovic-Savic is a player that Juve will always like. And he’s one of Allegri’s dreams. I’m working to understand if there will be a meeting next week with Lazio to talk about him. What I can say for sure is that Juventus have already had an agreement with their agent for some time now.”

2. Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa future remains uncertain, what’s the plan for them?

[quads id=1]

“Chiesa and Vlahovic weren’t happy with last season. There are many rumors around them, but neither of them – today – officially communicated to the club their intention to leave Juventus. For Juventus, they are two very important players, but if both or one of them ask to leave and there’s a big offer, then negotiations can start. On the contrary, they’ll stay in Torino.”

3. Juventus are missing out on Parisi and what are other Juventus targets this transfer market?

“Parisi is on standby, Juve spoke about him with Empoli but there have been no more meetings. Juventus are still on Parisi, the answer is yes. But many clubs want Parisi, not just Juve. Juventus are thinking about transfers, then they will think about signings.”

4. Nicolo Zaniolo is still a Juventus target? What’s the chances for him arriving this summer?

“Zaniolo, as he himself said, would like to go to Juventus. There are no negotiations with Galatasaray, there has been some contact to talk about other players as well.”

5. What’s the current situation on McKennie, Zakaria and Arthur who have reportedly likely to leave?

“The situation is very clear, they are three players who are no longer part of Juventus’ plans. Zakaria is very close to West Ham, there is optimism to close this deal well. Many clubs like McKennie, but so does Arthur there are no negotiations yet. With one difference: some good offers may come for McKennie, for Arthur it will be more difficult for me. Pastorello will have to do a great job.”

6. Then finally, what about Leonardo Bonucci, Andrea Cambiaso and Kenan Yildiz future at Juventus?

“Bonucci wants to stay at Juve, but he earns a lot. I’m following the possibility of his possible farewell, but nothing concrete yet today. Cambiaso will start retiring, there are some requests from him for a loan (Bologna). Juve will evaluate his situation in the coming weeks. Yildiz will remain, he is non-transferable.”

Exclusive interview with Fabiana Della Valle on Juventus punishments, Vlahovic’s future, Rabiot and Di Maria latest plus more




Max Statman and Forza Juventus’s Max Aimé-Thierry sit down with La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Fabiana Della Valle, one of the most reliable journalists when it comes to Juventus, to talk about the Bianconeri.

Fabiana Della Valle said that Juventus are confident that the penalty of 15 points will be removed, and confirmed that Dusan Vlahovic is among the players who could leave Juventus in the summer if it doesn’t make the top four in Serie A.

She also said that it’s too early to talk about Massimiliano Allegri’s future, while Juventus hope to sell Denins Zakaria next summer, plus more as found below:

What do you think of Juventus’ punishment? Your personal opinion.

I am amazed that such a strong sanction has been reached and I am curious to read the reasons. In general, I think it would be fairer to punish the club with fines and bans on managers without penalizing the players and fans.

What are the sensations within Juventus after the club’s punishment?

There is the conviction of having suffered an injustice but also the confidence of being able to overturn the sentence.

Something about Allegri’s future after reports of possible contract terminations or renewals?

I think it’s too early to talk about it. He’s solid right now, but a lot will depend on how the Juventus season ends.

Which big names do you think could leave Juventus in the summer, especially if they fail to make the top four?

Rabiot for sure, which is expiring, Cuadrado and Alex Sandro will not renew. Without Champions Dusan Vlahovic could be tempted by the Premier.

Latest updates on Adrien Rabiot’s contract extension and other possible departures..

It will be hard to keep him, especially now. Juve may have a chance if there are no big offers for him. I believe that Di Maria will return to Argentina at the end of the season and that Paredes will not be redeemed.

Will Arek Milik be a regular Juventus player in the summer?

In his case, the redemption is a bargain (€7 million) and I think Juventus will keep him, also because they are doing very well.

Denis Zakaria had some good performances at Chelsea. What are the chances that they will trigger the release clause?

The possibilities are there and Juventus are hoping for it because a sale will be inevitable in June.

No contact between Juventus and Luis Enrique




There’s no contact between Juventus and coach Luis Enrique, Max Statman was told by transfer expert Nicolò Schira. The Spanish coach left his position at the Spanish National Team this morning after a disappointing World Cup exit against Morocco.

Massimiliano Allegri’s return to Juventus hasn’t been a big success yet. The Bianconeri started the season poorly and even crashed out of the Champions League in a group with PSG, Benfica and Maccabi Haifa. Before the World Cup break, Juventus climbed the league table and managed to secure 3rd place after a run of good results. Still, Allegri’ spot wasn’t the most secure one in the world.

Many Juventus supporters opted for replacing the Italian coach with Luis Enrique. The ex-Barcelona coach announced that he would be leaving the Spanish National Team on Thursday morning, but there’s no signs of Enrique joining Juventus, Nicolò Schira said. According to him, Enrique is in contact with Atletico Madrid to become Diego Simeone’s successor.
