Juventus are in need of an overhaul: Who is likely to leave the Bianconeri?

It could be a busy and ruthless summer at Juventus if certain players do not show an upturn in form.

Juventus will likely need to make a serious overhaul of their squad at the end of the 2022/23 as the Bianconeri struggle in both Serie A and the Champions League.

La Vecchia Signora have multiple players that are in the final year of their contracts or have one full season left on their deals.

Corriere dello Sport reports that from now until the end of the season, Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has put head coach Massimiliano Allegri, his coaching staff, and the players under serious examination.

Among the players being closely observed are those who featured in prominent roles in the 2010s, but some of the new signings could also be shown the door after just one season in Turin.

Who is likely to leave Juventus?

It seems that the defence is the department set for the most change. Centre-backs Leonardo Bonucci and Daniele Rugani will not have their contracts renewed as they represent the old guard at Juventus and the Bianconeri want to bring in more players in the centre of defence after signing Federico Gatti and Gleison Bremer recently.

In the full-back roles, Alex Sandro is looking like a shadow of his former self and he has performed erratically on the left flank, while the versatile Juan Cuadrado is not as energetic as he once was, which is why the South American duo will also depart after June 2023.

Argentinian veteran Angel Di Maria could be free to leave at the end of the season as he has disappointed the Juventus hierarchy for several reasons. He was sent off in the shock 1-0 defeat to Monza, has suffered multiple injuries, has been undecided as to whether he will stay in Europe or finish his career in Argentina, and he has used the Bianconeri to get match fitness for the upcoming World Cup in Qatar.

His compatriot Leandro Paredes has joined from Paris Saint-Germain, and although La Vecchia Signora have an obligation to buy the midfielder outright from the French giants, Juve intend to sell him elsewhere. Italian striker Moise Kean is expected to be bought outright from Everton but he too could be immediately sold.

The future of Italian midfielder Manuel Locatelli at Juventus could also be in doubt. After his emergence at Sassuolo and impressive form for Italy at Euro 2020, the 24-year-old has not produced those performances often enough for Juventus.

Who has a future with Juventus?

There are no changes expected to be made in goal before the contract of Wojciech Szczesny expires in June 2024 and Mattia Perin is unlikely to leave as well. In defence, Bremer has the confidence of everybody at the club, and his fellow Brazilian Danilo will remain as he is experienced and remains dependable.

Juventus also view Italian starlet Fabio Miretti and Serbia international Dusan Vlahovic as future pillars of the team while they are also awaiting the return of Italy star Federico Chiesa from a knee injury.
