    A solid 7. Bolstered our attack, better midfield but weakened the defence. Going back to the Swissman as RB is a step back. I do think overall we are a better team than last season. The mercato will look better than it does now at the end of the season once Max figures out how to fix the team, again.
    This is not a democracy. Deal with it.

    8/10 for me. I think Howedes, Matuidi, Berna and Costa are all going to beast. We might concede 2 but score 5. Don't forget Bentacur. That kid has the poise of a champ. $#@! defence let's do offence this time.
    I will wait however long it takes and I know one we will celebrate and be celebrated.

    CL final or not, we are still just Juventus and we cannot compete with the big spenders
    We should be grateful, that although, we are a feeder club, we didn't have to sell any of our stars, we didn't choose to.

    7.5 is balanced, we are not worthy of the 8 because we got De Sciglio, Beppe should have vetooed it, he did fix it with Howedes, but still...
    7 is just too poor after Matuidi and considering that Howedes is a double benefit, should we drop the wingbacks and play a 3 man defense, we didn't just did our job, we further added quality and more tactical options than we needed.
    Opportunity targets like Shick and Strootman/Can didn't arrive, but we must appreciate the thought.
    If only we could handle our loans and sales better...

    6.5 - 7, simply because I'm unsure of MDS and the perhaps enforced sale of Bonucci, the special snowflake. Otherwise it's a pretty normal mercato, strengthened areas we needed.

    4/10

    CM: we added both quality and depth with the signing of matuidi. Bentancur could be the surprise of the summer, might be a colpo alla pogba. However, we could have tried to sign someone with more future potential like tolisso.

    7/10

    Attack: both signing of costa and bernardeschi add much needed depth for the attack. However there lies a huge question mark on if they can deliver.

    Missing on both schick and keita was absolutely stupid. Those were low risk transfers especially looking at the price of keita. Should have been more decisive!

    7/10


    Overall 6/10

    We may not have strengthened our first 11 significantly but have definitely strengthened our squad in general.

    Nice say VVG .....

    Words: Vincent Van Genechten

    An Italian double and a Champions League final. Improving upon last season won’t be easy for Juventus but they assembled the right pieces after a controversial summer.

    The summer of 2017 will forever be remembered as the one when Leonardo Bonucci decided to leave Juventus, just as the summer of 2016 is remembered as the one Paul Pogba left and the summer of 2015 as the one Andrea Pirlo and Arturo Vidal said goodbye. Juve fans aren’t pleased with stars leaving, but once again the Old Lady is stronger.

    The story is fairly simple: stand still in defence, better in midfield and massive improvement in attack. Overall, Juventini will be looking at a deeper squad which is even better equipped for a long and successful season.

    The departure of Bonucci hurts, especially in the short term. But it seems to have left more of an emotional scar than a football one. Many will agree that Leo’s positional play, leadership, playmaking, and defensive IQ are attributes Juventus will miss during the course of the season. However, it’s the quickfire sale to Milan for a fee not deemed high enough that was the talk of town.

    In the end, Juve aren’t significantly worse off defensively. Daniele Rugani was deemed ready to step in Bonucci’s shoes. Meanwhile, German international Benedikt Howedes was brought in on a cheap loan and could well be one of the most underrated new additions in Serie A. Nobody’s really sure how Mattia De Sciglio will perform but, considering his history with Max Allegri, the former Milan defender could be in for a renaissance season.

    Is this too positive? Perhaps. After all, Juve didn’t only lose Bonucci, they also saw Dani Alves moving to Paris Saint-Germain. The Brazilian is another defender with playmaking ability, and a big game performer too. However, Juve rejected huge bids for Alex Sandro and can rely on Alves’ compatriot for forward runs and dangerous crosses. An offensive juggernaut at right-back is less crucial for the Bianconeri, who never really liked Alves’ defensive flaws anyway.

    On top, Juve added a lot of creative skills and pace in attack. Douglas Costa and Federico Bernardeschi have proven over the years to be dangerous. Allegri had to rely on Paulo Dybala’s magnificent mind and feet too often last season, due to Juan Cuadrado’s on/off performances and Mario Mandzukic being forced into a role on the wing.

    Costa and Bernardeschi give Juventus the extra creative boost that they lacked last season, making an Alves-type right-back less of a necessity. Getting Bernardeschi from Fiorentina could be called a major success anyway, a superb piece of mercato dealing by general manager
    ADVERTISEMENT

    Beppe Marotta. The Bianconeri also appear to have found the heir to Gigi Buffon by luring in Wojciech Szczesny, who Buffon called “the best keeper in Serie A last season”.

    Marotta’s been called a genius but a rather large group of Juve fans will point at his failure to buy a world-class midfielder. This summer it was supposed to be Marco Verratti. Then Emre Can, Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Nemanja Matic… The result: Blaise Matuidi. A warrior, strong athlete and experienced midfielder. Far from perfect, but a type of player Juve lacked last season and who’ll help a guy like Miralem Pjanic blossom.

    However, there’s a new midfielder few people really talk about: Rodrigo Bentancur. “A 20-year-old Boca Juniors reject”, some will say. Until you actually watch him play. This kid’s got game. A mini version of Matic. A game changer this season? Probably not, but he’ll add quality depth to a midfield that won nearly every trophy available last season.

    Juventus didn’t only have a very efficient 2017 summer mercato, they also improved their squad after an historic season. Bonucci hurts and a new world class midfielder did not arrive, but overall this team is better equipped to go big once again. In the end, that’s all that matters in football.

    In: Bentancur, Douglas Costa, Szczesny, De Sciglio, Bernardeschi, Matuidi, Howedes

    Out: Dani Alves, Bonucci, Neto, Lemina, Rincon

    Score: B+

    I will be generous and give it a 9/10. The only issue is rb position. That should be fixed in winter mercato.

    Overall an average mercato:

    The good
    Beppe did a good job of buying players for the right price. Costa, Berna, Howedes, szcznicgjdkoc, Matuidi and Bentancur are all quality additions for low proces in todays market.

    Bad
    Selling Alves and buying MDS to replace is going to hurt us. Alves was our best performer in the biggest games last season and we get a total scrub to replace him.
    I dont mind cashing in on BonBon, but for 42 m to Milan is just mindblowing.
    Not getting Schick and partly Keita is a bad mistake. Again the penny pinching tactic went wrong and we lost out.

    We lost 2 WC players and got non in return. After the last season we had I would expect us to at least bring someone high profile but we did not. However we did improve our attack and midfield.

    I must admit, after last years mercato I am a bit disapointet about this one.

    5.5/10

    I guess you didn't get graded at school like this older guy.

    Very simple method going A to F with A being the best and F the worst. C could been seen as average.
