The Daily Express reports that the 39 year old Turin chief said the Blues are guilty of financial doping, and they they are only at the top of the world game due to a “false economy”.
“At this moment there are four clubs who are beyond compare in terms of revenue: Real Madrid, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Barcelona,” he said.
“They are followed by PSG and Manchester City, who, however, operate on a system of financial doping. If we take those two clubs out of the table, Juventus rise to eighth place [in overall club worth].”
“My objective is to reach fifth position in three or four years.”
Juve are currently top of Serie A, eleven points clear of second placed Roma.
