Juventus confirm 11 players for next year

Posted on 11/02/2010


Juventus have apparently confirmed the 11 players they aren’t prepared to sell in the summer. As for the rest, they can leave.

The Bianconeri have already started the re-building process after a terrible season. They currently lie seventh in Serie A and have nothing to play for other than the Europa League and qualification for next year’s Champions League.

A lot of attention has fallen on the competency of the board in recent months, but vice-general manager Roberto Bettega is said to be already working on the composition of next year’s squad, which promises to be radically different from the existing one.

La Gazzetta dello Sport understands Mauro Camoranesi and David Trezeguet will be leaving Turin. They are both 32 and have one year left on their current deals, so it’s the last chance for the Bianconeri to cash in on their talents.

Juventus are also said to be reluctant to give Fabio Cannavaro the option of playing another year while Fabio Grosso is expected to be in the departures lounge, together with Tiago and Molinaro who left the club on loan in January.

Martin Caceres and even Antonio Candreva are also apparently in limbo as the board is unsure whether they in fact deserve a permanent place in Turin.
