With only two wins after seven games and currently sitting in eighth-place in Serie A, Juventus Turin appears to be in serious jeopardy. Finishing in fourth position for two consecutive seasons in the Italian top flight, the Italian club faces fiscal issues in addition to its lack of success on the field.
The most recent financial report, which was issued on Friday, predicted a 253.4 million euro deficit in 2021–2022. The highest point ever recorded. The club is left without many options, but cutting down on the club’s spendings. And this will be accomplished by lowering the club’s payroll.
Three players whose contracts will expire in June of next year have already been set to leave Juve. According to Corriere dello Sport they are Cuadrado, Sandro. And Rabiot are the three men who will be let go to reduce the wage bill.
First on the list is 31-year-old full-back Alex Sandro. According to the Italian publication, the Brazilian. Who is being paid 6 million euros a year, will not be offered an extension. Juan Cuadrado is developing the same situation . When the Colombian winger played a certain amount of games last season, his contract was automatically renewed for this year. Juve attempted to negotiate his pay down but were unsuccessful.
Last but not least, Adrien Rabiot is reported to leave Juventus Turin. The Bianconeri would save a tonne of money if the French midfielder left because his projected annual pay is €7 million net. The former Parisian’s financial demands put the Italian club’s transfer agreement with Manchester United, which was anticipated to cost 17 million euros, on hold this summer. He will essentially leave next summer free as a result.
