The Juventus squad for the first preseason training camp is set to feature two new faces and two players who have been linked with a move to the Bianconeri.
Juventus is currently looking to add some quality to its squad, especially in the attacking midfield area, and while it is unlikely to bring in some of its big name players, the squad could see a few more players come through its ranks.
The club’s first preseason session is scheduled to take place in the city of Verona, on July 18, with a training camp later in the summer.
Juventus has confirmed that it will be holding a pre-season friendly against Fiorentina, on August 9, at the Guglielmino Stadium.
The Juventus vs Fiorenina match will be played at 8:00 pm on August 10.
The team is set for a couple of weeks, but it will start training at 6:00 am on August 12, which is when the squad will be expected to train.
The team will then head out for a prelude training session with Fiorengina on August 18.
The Juventus squad will have two new players, with Andrea Barzagli and Giuseppe Rossi likely to be the first pair of players to be brought in, and Andrea Barcelo, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Giuseppo Mestre and Davide Santon are likely to feature in the other pair.
The squad is also expected to include new signing Gianluccio Guarin and Alessandro Florenzi.
A big surprise for the team will be the return of Andrea Pirlo.
Pirli has been the mainstay of Juventus for a few seasons now, having signed a new contract in January 2018, and he has been one of the most important players of the Juventus side.
He has scored three goals in 20 games in the Serie A season, and has provided an alternative outlet for the injured Andrea Pescara, who has struggled for minutes this season.
The coach is expected to take a similar approach to how he did last year with the Italian national team, in the same way that he did with his squad in the Confederations Cup and the Euros, with Pirla returning to the squad and playing regularly.
The Italian team is also set to face off against one of its biggest rivals, Italy’s Serie A champions, Inter Milan.
Inter will be in action for the second time this season, against Fiorespor in the first leg of the Champions League semi-final.
The two teams are tied in the points standings at the top of the table, with Inter sitting third.
The Juventus side is set up to face one of Italy’s most consistent sides, Inter, on the final day of the campaign.
With Inter, Juve will have to face the team which had been beaten by the Italian champions Juventus on the opening day of a new campaign.
Juventus is in the middle of a tough season, with just two wins in the last seven matches.
Juve have not won at home in the Champions Leagues, having conceded a total of 12 goals in all competitions, the most by any team in Europe.
Juve are also coming off a disastrous World Cup in Brazil.
Despite a late win over Peru, the Italian team lost to Chile, and it was their second straight defeat in Brazil, with the defeat in the Copa Libertadores against Brazil.
Juves are currently seventh in the table in Serie A, with only the second-placed Napoli coming within a game of them.
The Bianconeria are in a tricky situation, having played two home games in a row, and two away matches.
With only one win in seven games, it is unclear how they will cope in the coming weeks.
Juventus are currently third in Serie B, with third place having been achieved just last season.
The club will play host to Sassuolo on Saturday, August 11.
