We've been taking too many sideways or backwards steps in the midfield for too long, if Pjanic is to be sold it can't be for someone just "good", or someone with potential like Tonali. That isn't making a concerted effort to win the CL, which is what the signing of Ronaldo, and to a lesser extent Higuain and De Ligt, was all about. We could have used the money spent on Ronaldo and Higuain to guarantee further long-term investment by signing four or five talents, if we were thinking about just dominating Serie A and looking to win the CL in 5 year's time.

Current Juve have our own version of "Zidanes y Pavones", which is essentially "Ronaldos e freebies", because we obviously can't even develop a Pavon at this club.
And that's a huge red flag because our Pavones came here free but with huge salaries so accountability wise aren't expensive but make them really hard to get rid of

About Arthur. That guy so far have showed a 100% lolzilian behavior so he's a total gamble so if he comes, it has to be cheap

I say go for Aouar over Tonali if the price difference is only 5 million Euros.

Both Aouar and Van De Beek would be solid acquisitions - young players with lots of quality and CL experience as well.
Aouar?! Honestly I have never been too impressed by him. He is a good player but I havent seen anything extraordinary from him so between him and Tonali - Even though Aouar is currently the better player Id go for Tonali as he is younger and his style is more to my liking.
Van De Beek is better than both but honestly I`d splash on Pogba and only take a look if we still have funds and how to use those funds.
Meunir should be our priority for RB as even though I like Cuadrado he isnt exactly the natural RB

Aouar is only 21 years old (soon to be 22) and Tonali is 20. The gap isn't that huge. Tonali has 0 experience outside Serie A. I'm not saying no to Tonali, but between him and Aouar, I'd go for the latter.

Ideally, I want Pogba, but I don't know how plausible that is.

So you are the type of guy that needs to make someone smaller in order to feel comfortable..
Sorry to disappoint you but I am just not that impressed by Aouar and while everyone all over the world were fapping about Coutinho I said the exact same thing....

I know the age gap is almost non existent but still Tonali has played in Serie A and is younger while I see more overall potential in Tonali even though Aouar is currently the better player.

That was not my intention, so my bad if you took it this way. However it surprises me you have seen that many games of him to have a clear cut opinion on him. I myself only know him by reputation

@Raphaël would know more about Aouar

Nothing new, but it is clear that the club will seek to sell the most bankable players this summer: Depay (2021), Dembele, Aouar because of the non-qualification in CL and the covid.

Football stopped in France. Presidents argue and insult each other, between those who have pushed to a standstill and those who want to resume. Mediapart, an often well-informed news site leaked a league document on the clubs' catastrophic financial health. According to this documents some clubs have huge losses with risk of bankruptcy: - 206.3 M (PSG or Monaco), -127 M (Marseille), -59 M (Lyon), - 54 M (Bordeaux).

Sandro is underappreciated by too many fans
I think the under appreciation thing is coming from our management..
He is the best LB in the world and is one of few full backs who are good in defending and attacking.
When we have trouble going forward he is one of the few players who perform and links up very well with Ronaldo
