Juventus can now win Champions League

Published Add your comment

Despite coasting to a fourth Scudetto in succession last season, Juventus have enjoyed a fine transfer window with the signing of Juan Cuadrado the cherry on top of the cake. 

Though the Colombian has struggled for form since signing for Chelsea from Fiorentina in February, his pace and ability is unquestionable and now means Massimiliano Allegri's squad can go one further than last year and win the Champions League. 

Talisman Carlos Tevez may have returned to Argentina with his beloved Boca Juniors but the arrivals of Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic and Sami Khedira coupled with keeping Paul Pogba means they could be the closest rivals to Barcelona on the European stage.

Stellar squad

Despite losing 1-0 to Udinese on the opening day of the new Serie A season, Juventus are still likely to win the title at a canter, having bolstered their attacking options since their defeat to Barcelona back in June. 

Dybala and Mandzukic both netted on their debuts as the Old Lady beat Lazio to win the Italian Super Cup earlier in the month, with the former tipped to become the next Lionel Messi by his former Palermo president Maurizio Zamparini.

Mandzukic was heavily linked with Premier League duo Manchester United and Arsenal, only to ultimately opt for Turin, and if Allegri can handle him better than Diego Simeone did at Atletico Madrid it may be the key to further success. 

Keeping Pogba

A major reason Juventus are now considered as one of the favourites for Europe's top-tier competition is due to how they have managed to keep France midfielder Paul Pogba in Turin. 

The youngster was in brilliant form last term, and was given the number 10 after Tevez's departure in a gesture that has all but ensured he ply his trade at the club for yet another season. 

Chelsea remain in the hunt for him - and are reportedly lining up a sensational £70 million bid to prise him away - yet the fact that the Cuadrado deal has been done separately implies they may have to wait until next year.
