Juventus continue to be the dominant force in Italian football.

Juventus manager Massimilliano Allegri claims that his club can’t compete with the financial muscle of some of Europe’s top clubs.
Despite being linked with the likes of Toni Kroos and Radamel Falcao, Juve failed to make any major signings this summer, with their only main purchase being the signing of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid for £16 million.
Although he is happy with the strength of his current squad, Allegri claims that Juventus aren’t in the market for the world’s best players because they can’t compete with the likes of Madrid and Manchester United financially.
“I had an agreement with the club that we would only strengthen the team with players who could really add something,” Allegri was quoted by Goal.
“We eventually didn’t sign anyone else, but that wasn’t because we didn’t want to strengthen. It’s because there are big clubs out there with a different budget than Juventus.
“It’s enough to look at what clubs like Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United have done this summer.
“It would not have added anything if we’d signed players we wouldn’t have used. I am convinced that we already have a good squad to do well in the Champions League.”
Although Allegri couldn’t sign any real superstars this summer, Juve are still one of the favourites to win the Champions League and are still the biggest footballing power in Italy. Allegri’s side began their defence of Serie A with a 1-0 win over Chievo at the weekend.
