The latest from Juventus, Juventus’ new players
- by admin
The Bianconeri have signed eight new players to their first-team squad, bringing the total to 14, which is down from the previous season’s 17. They are: Fabio Borini, Federico Marchetti, Dario Franceschini, Eduardo Sanches, Gianluca Di Marzio, Giuseppe Bellotti, Antonio Cassano, Andrea Pasqualini and Lorenzo D’Ambrosio.
D’Ambrozzo has been named in the squad, while Cassano is the only new signing.
Borini is set to take up the captaincy in place of Sergio Marchionne, who has been handed the role of holding midfielder.
Firmly established in Serie A, Borini has made nine appearances in all competitions for the Giallorossi, and has scored seven goals.
He has made just one appearance for Juventus since joining the club in January 2017, as the Bianconeros struggled to get off the mark, winning just three of their 14 league games.
Cassano was also signed by the Biancos from Inter, and was on the bench in their 3-0 defeat to Roma in the Serie A Cup.
“I am happy to be here, and I am very happy to take the captain’s role,” the midfielder told Sport Italia.
While Marchionnas has been sidelined for a number of months with a knee injury, Cassano and Borini are both confident that the new recruits will have a big impact in the team.
“It’s a new challenge for me,” Borini said.
“The team has to do well in the cup, so I want to make sure that we’re ready for the next game.”
Cassanos signing, a huge boost to Juve ahead of the next season Focusing on goals and goalscorersJuventus are looking to be competitive in the next few years, with their current squad boasting eight goals in the current Serie A campaign.
But they are looking for a bit more, as they are set to make a bid for the European Cup.
Juventus are also in the market for some new faces, and they are hoping to bring in two more players from the Serie B ranks.
Milan and Manchester United have both been linked with the Biancozzaro’s squad, with the latter being linked with a move for the former.
United have been linked to a number players this summer, with former Manchester United striker David de Gea reportedly attracting interest from the Premier League side.
However, the Bucas are unlikely to sell their talisman, as they are keen to add players from abroad.
One of the new signings is Domenico Mancini, a talented player who has made only three appearances for Juventus this season.
The 26-year-old is a centre-back who played at the heart of Juventus defence for many years, and is known for his pace and strength.
Mancini also has a wealth of experience, having won three Serie A titles, as well as the Coppa Italia in 2014.
On the back of the new signings, Juve’s goal tally has dropped to 14 goals, while their goals per game average has risen from 0.93 to 1.04.
Juventus will have to start winning games if they are to make the Champions League, and a return to Serie A would surely help them.
