Serie A Champions Juventus are wasting no time in securing the players they regard as necessary if they are to hold onto their title next season, and to hopefully do better in the Champions League where they were outclassed by the eventual champions Bayern Munich losing by an aggregate score of 4-0.
It is thought that following that defeat the Bianconeri were determined to spend big in order to be able to compete next season bringing in from Atletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente, on a free transfer, and their newest accusation Carlos Tevez from Manchester City for a £12 million fee, which could rise to £15 million should Juventus win Serie A title again, and reach the semi-finals of the Champions League.
Next on their shopping list is another Manchester City player Aleksandar Kolarov who they hope to get for a good price as Manchester City look to reduce their over-inflated wage bill.
The former Lazio fullback spends most of his time on the bench, after having failed to make an impression on the City team, and would welcome a move to a team where he would get more games.
“I am in constant contact with my agent, so we will soon see what happens,” he said in June 2012. “I am very happy here in Manchester but my goal is to play with greater regularity. I said it to [former boss Roberto] Mancini.
“Money has nothing to do with it and I have no problem with wages. It’s simply that I would like to be able to feel more of a regular.”
The 27-year-old Serbian seems like a perfect fit for Juventus where the left-sided fullback could slot in perfectly into their wing-back system.
