Juventus transfer news: How Serie A champions could line-up next season with Paul Pogba, Matthijs de Ligt, and Aaron Ramsey

Maurizio Sarri’s squad at Juventus is already shaping up for the new season with two impressive free transfer signings and more on the horizon.

Sarri left Chelsea last month after just a season in charge to take the job and move back to Italy.

Matthijs de Ligt is thought to have chosen Juventus as his next club

Juve had already signed a pre-contract agreement with Aaron Ramsey and he was officially unveiled last week.

The Turin-based side also won the race for the signature of Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The France international had been frozen out of the first team squad in his homeland because of his intention to leave once his contract expired.

A number of other top clubs were after his signature, including Liverpool and Manchester United, but he chose to go to Italy.

Gonzalo Higuain has also returned to the club after an unsuccessful loan spell with Chelsea.

It remains to be seen if he will get another chance at Juventus but he has a good relationship with Sarri, who coached him at Napoli and brought him to Chelsea.

The Serie A side are also the favourites to sign Matthijs De Ligt this summer with some reports suggesting the Netherlands defender has chosen Juve.

Wantaway Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has also been heavily linked with a return to Turin.

Here at we have taken a look at how Juve could line-up next season.


This is a formation that Sarri favoured at Chelsea with a back-four and a defensive midfielder, likely Rabiot, just in front.

Ramsey could partner Pogba in front of Rabiot to provide the creativity for the forwards.

In attack, the manager could deploy a front three of Cristiano Ronaldo, Higuain and Paulo Dybala, depending on who remains at the club.

How Maurizio Sarri’s side could look next season


In this set up, it would be very similar to the 4-3-3 but with Ramsey and Pogba providing more width.

That would mean Cristiano Ronaldo pushed into a No.10 role in order to accommodate the two strikers, in this instance they would be Dybala and Higuain.

The main task for Sarri is how to accommodate all his front men as most prefer to play through the middle rather than out wide.

Paulo Dybala has been sidelined at the club because the signing of Ronaldo has seen him pushed out wide.

The Portugal international has been used both out wide and through the middle last season but it will be a question of where to play him under Sarri.
