As a Juventus supporter, the club is turning what was a great off-season into a questionable one. Love the signings of De Ligt, Ramsey and Rabiot, but now they are in panic mode trying to off-load pieces. Also, trying to appease Ronaldo with every move. I didn't want Lukaku and glad that move didn't happen...but now it seems like Dybala might be going to Spurs (they will win the PL if that happens). I am sure that money will be used for Icardi or Lukaku anyway now. I would personally prefer Icardi with all his baggage. I am not sold on Sarri-Ball with this team and think by the time they mesh, it will be too late and Inter will win the league, ending Juve's 8 year run.

Wouldn’t Dybala to Spurs be a push if Erikson is leaving to ManU?

In short, no. I think Pochettino can take him and them to the next level.

I think Spurs could definitely push Liverpool for second if not the title if they got Dybala . It's one of the reasons I haven't made my EPL picks in the other thread yet. Can't place Spurs with all the rumored transfer activity that still may or may not come off.

Especially with Eriksen staying, but the Dybala situation has been a disaster with this contract nonsense. Would have been a great move for both.

Watched the Napoli Barcelona match and the Napoli attack looks very dangerous. Carlo has them In sync again. Back-line improved. The only question mark I'd have is defensively in the midfield. They will be right up there with Juve and Inter. 123 may be a tossup.

Ribery to Fiorentina Official



Lozano taking his medical today with Napoli
An attack of Chiesa, Boateng & Ribery could be very successful. Rocco Commisso making the fans happy there.

Chucky Lozano is a good pick up for Napoli. If they find a way to bring Icardi in or any decent poacher they'd be scary with the creative talent they have.

James Rodriguez and Icardi are still very much in the cards and a hot topic/rumor currently for Napoli. A lot of serie a teams made a lot of moves this summer. its gonna be a great season

Should see Napoli and Inter stronger in CL too. If they get decent group draws we could potentially see multiple Italian teams making it pretty far including Juve.

Good start from Inter. I want to see Lukaku score at least 20 league goals just to rub in to Man U :D

Chiellini torn ACL. Could very well be end of his career. Time for Matthijs De Ligt to take the reins.

Damnit. At work last I checked it was 2-0 Juve. Sorry to see they still pulled it off . Hope their vulnerable in the defense now, maybe?
