Fernando Llorente was a free transfer from Athletic Bilbao in the summer. He was expected to be part of the first-team almost instantly along with summer signing Carlos Tevez. The former Manchester City man was brought to the club for £ 10 million.

Last season, the attack used to be one of the major weaknesses for Juventus. They now have rectified this with the signings of Llorente and Tevez, but it has not been a great start for the former. Tevez has settled almost instantly and has been scoring a lot of goals since the start of the season.


Juventus defender Giorgio Chiellini is regarded as one of the best in the world right now. He is rated in excess of € 25 million by his club, who are trying to fend off the interest from Real Madrid for his services.

After the arrival of Carlo Ancelotti as the manager of Real Madrid, speculation has been mounting that the 28-year-old defender will join the club. Ancelotti is a huge fan of the player after he tried to sign him with his previous clubs like Chelsea and PSG. However, he has so far been unable to lure the Italian away from Turin.


Juventus have made significant inroads when it comes to strengthening the squad in the striking department. The club has managed to bring in the likes of Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente to strengthen the area where we lacked the most last season.

Juventus have had the best midfielders and defenders under Antonio Conte. It was only in the striking department that they lacked and this also has been strengthened following the arrival of these two players. The manager, though, reckons that there is still a lot of work to do within the team in order to make them great.


Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson recently announced his retirement from the sport after more than 40 years in charge of different clubs.

Even though he has managed a couple of Scottish clubs, Ferguson is known for being in charge of United for more than 25 years. There have been comparisons of Juventus manager Antonio Conte with the Scot, but the Italian has straightaway rejected the comparisons by saying that he is only starting in his career. After more than a decade without any success, Conte managed to lead Juventus to successive league titles.


The Italian champions Juventus have managed to complete the signing of the former Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka on a six-month deal from the Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua. The former French international moved to the Chinese league more than a year ago, but he has been unhappy recently.


The Juventus manager Antonio Conte has managed to remarkably overturn the fortunes of the Italian giants, who looked like being available to recover from the match fixing scandal of 2006. They managed to win the title after staying undefeated throughout the whole of last season.


The Juventus general director Giuseppe Marotta has said that he is extremely confident that the team can retain the Italian Serie A title this season due to the fact that they have the winning mentality.
