Juventus close in on a free transfer for Donnarumma

A report from Corriere Torino suggests that Juventus are closing in on the potential free transfer of AC Milan goalkeeper Gigio Donnarumma. However, the Old Ladies will need to let go of Wojciech Szczesny for the deal to materialize. Donnarumma's future at AC Milan appears uncertain as his contract talks have not been going smoothly and have been a talking point in Italy for a while. This is because Mino Raiola has made demands that the Rossoneri are not willing to meet. Meanwhile, this is a plus for the Old Ladies as they can get to replace Szczesny with the 22-year-old towering shot-stopper and this will be a major step in the right direction, and more so it will be long-term.

The Juve job is seemingly too big for Andrea Pirlo

Andrea Pirlo was undoubtedly successful with Juventus in his time as a player but the same can't be said of his ongoing managerial spell at the club. It is all but confirmed that the Old Ladies won't be Serie A champions this year. Therefore, the quest for a 10th consecutive scudetto win is gone out the window. Should the Turin giants have stayed put with Maurizio Sarri? Maybe they should have, as they are about to fall short of Sarri's record which eventually resulted in his sack.
