Juventus have already signed Cristiano Ronaldo this summer, but reports claim that they could have one more major addition in them.
The Bianconeri will be aiming for their eighth consecutive Serie A title this season, but after signing the Portuguese superstar and re-signing Leonardo Bonucci, they look primed for a genuine assault on the Champions League.
Given it’s now been over two decades since they last won in Europe, it seems as though they have adopted a ‘win now’ approach and will try to make the most of the window over the next two or three years with Ronaldo still at his best.
According to Calciomercato, via the paper edition of Tuttosport, that strategy could now also lead to another huge name joining the Turin giants with either Paul Pogba or Sergej Milinkovic-Savic tipped to be the subject of a swoop from the Italian champions.
However, if they were to launch a move for either star, it’s added that they would have to sacrifice Miralem Pjanic in order to make it happen so as to give them the financial strength to launch their own big-money pursuit of either reported target.
The Bosnian international has been a fundamental part of Massimiliano Allegri’s plans over the last two years since his move from Roma, and so it’s debatable as to whether it would be smart business to sell him.
Nevertheless, if either Pogba or Milinkovic-Savic are a genuine possibility, it surely has to be an avenue that they explore given both players have star quality and have proven that not only can they deliver in the short-term at a high level, but they’ve got years ahead of them to develop further being 25 and 23 respectively.
Time will tell if a move materialises, but Juventus arguably don’t want to change too much either with the upcoming campaign fast approaching. Given Pogba’s success in his last stint with them though, a possible return could be too good to ignore.
