Coach Andrea Pirlo has a lot to do next season as Juventus head coach. And the first thing is to find support for Cristiano Ronaldo in the attack. Meanwhile, Andrea Pirlo has saved the Serie A champions, when he only received a salary of 1.6 million pounds/season, nearly 20 times lower than superstar Cristiano Ronaldo.
JUVENTUS SCRAMBLED THE TRANSFER MARKET TO FIND SOMEONE TO SUPPORT RONALDO
Juventus had just been eliminated in the 1/8 round of the Champions League against Lyon and it was a drop of water that caused Maurizio Sarri to lose his job. Coach Andrea Pirlo was quickly appointed and he also hastily prepared a transfer plan for the Old Lady. The focus of this plan is to force rejuvenation. In addition, due to the effects of the Covid-19 epidemic, Juventus could not spend too much money. They need to carefully monitor their goals and be decisive in negotiations to get the people they need.
But the first task is to sell off stars that are no longer relevant or do not contribute much. The backbone of Juventus next season will be Ronaldo, Dybala, De Ligt, Demiral, and Bentancur. Plus two new recruits, Kulusevski and Arthur, will also be secured. Juventus are chasing Chiesa and Zaniolo, Coach Andrea Pirlo need a quality winger. They also need a good midfielder to share Ronaldo’s scoring burden. The target insight is Atalanta’s Duvan Zapata, Wolves’ Raul Jimenez, Napoli’s Arkadiusz Milik, and Atletico Madrid’s Alvaro Morata.
But according to the latest information, Coach Andrea Pirlo are looking to use Douglas Costa in exchange for Arsenal’s Alexandre Lacazette. In midfield, in addition to Kulusevski and Arthur, Juventus will need others. Sandro Tonali is a gem that needs to “steal” immediately but is facing fierce competition from Inter. Manuel Locatelli of Sassuolo and Isco of Real Madrid are also quality options.
In terms of defense, Bonucci, De Light, and Demiral will still be the main pillars. Chiellini will be an effective backup, but the Old Lady still needs an extra piece. It could be Cristian Romero, who was just loaned out at Genoa last season. The final question is whether to continue to play Juan Cuadrado at right-back or return him to the position of the winger. On the opposite flank, Alex Sandro is in decline and in need of an alternative. It could be Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri or recall Luca Pellegrini after a season on loan in Cagliari.
Coach Andrea Pirlo ‘s SALARY AT JUVENTUS
While Europe’s top clubs often consider their coaches to be financially equal to the club’s star players, or even higher, at this moment Juventus is not following that trend. Sources close to the Turin team said that the new coach Pirlo is said to have signed a contract that only three Juventus players receive lower salaries than him.
Specifically, the Gazzetta Dello Sports newspaper published the data on the salary of Coach Andrea Pirlo is only 1.6 million pounds/year. Although this is a large sum of money, it becomes negligible when compared to the salary amount Juventus pays for the top stars of the team.
Ronaldo receives a salary of up to 28 million pounds/year
Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo is regularly pocketing £ 28 million a year, making him the highest-paid player in the team’s history and one of the two highest-paid stars on the planet (along with Lionel Messi). Before that, Juventus shocked the football world this week, after it was revealed that Coach Andrea Pirlo was the replacement for the sacked Maurizio Sarri – although the Italian football legend has never taken over the role of the team coach before.
