Squad needs a major overhaul. We have so many useless players it's depressing to see.
Imo we are stacked when it comes to GKs and CBs and should be good enough in offense.
Midfield is a black hole and a total joke for a club of our calibre. I don't see any of our currents mids as suitable being a starter for Juve. Pjanić and Benta would be good enough as subs. Next to midfield are fullbacks where we have a total of 1 competent player out of 4 required.

Ronaldo and Dybala cannot play together as a striking partnership in a cohesive, balanced unit. They play the same position. Neither is a winger, neither is a #9, neither is an attacking midfielder. They're both SS at this point and need a true #9 with them and a formation with 2 up front. We have zero threats in the box when both of them spend 70% of their time around it. Zidane was spot on with how he used CR. Maybe look at that instead of inventing and ruining his last 2-3 years.

CR is not going anywhere. Even if he wanted to nobody can afford him right now. And giving Dybala that big fat 20m gross contract is a death sentence with CR also here for the next few years.

Haaland was a missed opportunity we'll regret for years. There's no great up and coming STs other than him. Osimhen looks kinda decent I guess but he needs to show more.

Paratici had the right mindset of cashing in on Dybala and then improving other parts of the team, he just fucked up with Lukaku being the chosen one.

If we could sell Dybala, Matuidi, Higuain, Khedira, Costa, Pjanić, Rabiot, Berna and then get Tonali, Aouar, Partey, Boga and Havertz for that money it's a no-brainer.

Find a cheap #9 to partner CR and run for him and make space for him like MM did - Cavani, Belotti, Benzema, Diego Costa etc. - then in 2 years when he leaves throw everything at Haaland.

Danilo-MDL-Demiral-Sandro
Partey-Tonali-Bentancur
Havertz-Aouar
Haaland​

Complete 180 to the depressing, old and slow team we have now. Hopefully by then some new fullbacks will come through, at least a RB.

Paratici has been focusing on younger players: Pellegrini, De Ligt, Demiral, Kulusevski and Romero. I hope he’ll continue to do so.

Unlike last year we need to be successful in offloading players. Enough with the high salaries and players who don’t have a future here.

I’d say sell Khedira, Rabiot, Bernardeschi, De Sciglio, Perin and perhaps Costa and Higuaín, depending on the offers (if we receive them).

The Pjanic/Arthur swap is still on (at least this is wat Italian media is saying) I’d gladly accept it.

We all know the interesting names: Tonali, Castrovilli, Aouar, Zaniolo, Pogba. Honestly I don’t care who, as long as at least one of them arrives.

For several times Ive been reading that it’s most likely that Mandragora will be bought back - but it’s unsure if he will be used for a swap with another player. I’d keep him. He and Matuidi as DM’s. In this case we have Arthur, X and Mandragora as new midfielders.

If we receive an offer for Rugani in my opinion he can leave, replace him with Fillipo Romagna from Sassuolo as low cost option as our 5th central defender. We have Romero, I’m not sure if he stays, we payed a lot for a 5th choice in that case.

We need to find a new 9. It’s to difficult to make Ronaldo and Dybala coexist together, someone with the profile of Cavani would be great. I’m not saying Cavani, but he should be taken in consideration if Higuaín leaves and we are looking for a low cost option.

Tactically we should go back to 4-2-3-1. Imo it gives us the best change of getting the best out of Ronaldo and Dybala. The right winger will be very important, he has to run his ass of to compensate Ronaldo, Dybala and the striker. This is where Kulusevski comes in. As a wingers he on average runs more then most CM’s in the Serie A. It’s the same as Mandzukic did in 2017.

X
Ronaldo - Dybala - Kulusevski
X - Bentancur
Sandro - Chiello/Bonucci - De Ligt - Cuadrado
Szczesny​

Buffon, Pinsoglio, Pellegrini, Danilo, Demiral, Rugani/X, Matuidi, Mandragora, Ramsey, Costa, X.

We could in fact use another striker, but I’m not sure if it’s realistic. I’m trying to keep it low cost. The U23 will enter their 3th season, we should expect a few prospects making their way into the first team.

I'm expecting this

Danilo DL Bon Sandro

Aouar Benta Ramsey

Dybala
Milik Ronaldo




DS Demiral Chiello Pellegrini

Tonali Mandragora Castrovilli/Matuidi ( Castrovilli could be replaced byPellegrini, Locatelli)

Zaniolo Kean? Kulu


Something along those lines, I threw Kean in there because I could see us swapping him for Rabiot
But that starting midfield might be a bit light, we will see.

I don't think it's a bad team at all, I do think we need a proper CF to act as foil for Ronaldo and Dybala
If we want to play another CF on top of Ronaldo and Dybala, then we need 3 dynamite box-to-box midfielders with endless stamina to make that work.

Bentancur could work in that role I think, so could Ramsey if he can stay fit, but who else?

Pjanic? Dead man walking
Khedira? Even more dead than Pjanic
Matuidi? Exquisite ball control
Rabiot? Slow and lazy and he's not even old

The best B2B options available would be Pogba, SMS, and Partey. I wouldn't even be mad with Locatelli.

He's my pessimistic but realistic prediction:

nskJuGm.png


Raul Jimenez is bought with Bernardeschi and Rugani going the other way
Montiel is bought from River Plate as an exchange deal with Higuain
Matuidi is sold to Lyon with Aouar coming the other way
Arthur-Pjanic trade deal
Rabiot, Danilo, De Sciglio, and Romero are sold for plusvalenza
Locatelli and Allan in as midfield reinforcements
I couldn't think of a good backup striker

That's actually not too bad for a pessimistic prediction - the midfield is a lot younger and oozes potential, but will they click and realize that potential? The defense looks great, on paper. The midfield, especially with the addition of Allan for experience is indeed upgraded (that shouldn't be hard to do, considering how crap our midfield already is). The attack enjoys a minor tweak, but I'm not sure if Wolves will accept Raguni and Burnturdeski.
