Zakaria came first, then McKennie, then Locatelli, and now Arthur. The Juventus midfield continues to leak, and owing to poor luck, wear, and, eventually, preparation blunders, Massimiliano Allegri is finding himself with a middle department of the field that he did not already consider very first level, but at a slower pace and with continual emergence. Despite the fact that the Tuscan coach has been in office for over a year, the department that still needs investment is the central one.
It should be noted that Locatelli was added in August, Ramsey and Bentancur departed Continassa in January, and Zakaria took their place. So the Juventus administration has already done something to assist Allegri, but the thought of a top shot in the department remains alive in the minds of the transfer market men in the run-up to next summer. Pogba has long been a fan favourite, but his pay is tough to sustain despite the growth decree. Jorginho has been suggested and would happily come, but negotiating with Chelsea now is not simple given the company’s circumstances. Gravenberch has almost disappeared with Bayern, who has progressed much with Ajax, and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, whose pay is within reach, will have to cope with a difficult nut like Lotito. Other candidates are Youri Tielemans and Davide Frattesi.
However, while looking at today’s Juve squad, it is apparent that a very high-level shot is certainly necessary since the entire department must develop experience and personality. However, a single shot will not be enough, in order to contend for titles and triumphs, an extra starter must be added to this team, alternating with the possible line of Locatelli and Zakaria. A low-cost midfielder with a confident performance. Pogba was a reserve behind Vidal, Pirlo, and Marchisio in Allegri’s first season at Juventus, but he was pulled to zero from Manchester United.
