I only got to watch the highlights, but it's clear that the side is slowly improving. All the pieces are there, this is abundantly clear. Some time to develop some chemistry with some added confidence, this will be the best side in a decade. And now if Allan switches sides as rumored, that only makes things better.
I agree that we should keep tabs on both Barella and Chiesa like we always should if there's a talented Italian on the horizon. I don't necessarily agree that we don't have space for Chiesa. Look at our set of wingers:
Well, no questions here. However, he also does play a lot as a CF.
He's already over 30yo and he's future may lay as a RB/RWB.
He's good as a winger but can also play SS, CAM or even a mezzala and maybe he's even better fitted for these positions than a WF.
4. D. Costa
Great winger, surely better than Chiesa atm.
To conclude, he could be a 3/4th choice winger next season. Not that bad for a very young footballer in a club like Juve.
Difensori: Cristiano Biraghi (Fiorentina), Leonardo Bonucci (Juventus), Giorgio Chiellini (Juventus), Mattia De Sciglio (Juventus), Emerson Palmieri Dos Santos (Chelsea), Alessandro Florenzi (Roma), Alessio Romagnoli (Milan), Daniele Rugani (Juventus);
Centrocampisti: Nicolò Barella (Cagliari), Roberto Gagliardini (Inter), Frello Filho Jorge Luiz Jorginho (Chelsea), Lorenzo Pellegrini (Roma), Stefano Sensi (Sassuolo), Sandro Tonali (Brescia), Marco Verratti (Paris Saint Germain);
Attaccanti: Domenico Berardi (Sassuolo), Federico Bernardeschi (Juventus), Federico Chiesa (Fiorentina), Vincenzo Grifo (Hoffenheim), Ciro Immobile (Lazio), Lorenzo Insigne (Napoli), Kevin Lasagna (Udinese), Leonardo Pavoletti (Cagliari), Matteo Politano (Inter).
From Mancini: the intention is to play like against Poland, including Bernardeschi if he is fit enough. Giving time for Belotti and El Shaarawy to continue this upswing and get consistency before joining the team. Tonali called up like Zaniolo last time, to see him up close. Similar for Sensi and Grifo.
I don't know anything about Grifo, hadn't heard about him in years. Good to see Sensi there, maybe he doesn't have the top level (too short) but his performances deserve a bit of reward and a trial as Jorginho's back up. Very well deserved for Politano, he should be in the mix, same for Verdi once he comes back from injury.
