Italian giant, Juventus, is looking to off-load some players to add to spending and team-building activities in the transfer market next summer.
As reported by Italian outlet La Gazzetta Della Sport, the Serie A side will auction three players namely, Douglas Costa, Miralem Pjanic and Paulo Dybala to raise cash for next season.
The name Douglas Costa is at the top of the list to be sold considering the current season. The Brazilian winger rarely played due to injury and his attitude is considered immoral to the opponents and for Juventus also.
He once spat on Sassuolo players and went to Neymar's birthday after his car accident. Reportedly Juventus will sell the player who was brought in from Bayern Munich at a price of around 50 million Euros.
Unlike Douglas Costa, Miralem Pjanic will be sold because he is now considered not to be optimal in every game he played for the Old Lady.
Moreover, Pjanic was targeted by teams from England last season but refused any transfer as he felt like home at Juventus.
But this time it seems that La Vecchia Signora will release him if anyone is ready to pay around 70 million Euros for the holding midfielder.
Paulo Dybala is also in the list since Cristiano Ronaldo's arrival in the city of Turin. His name has always been marginalized from the starting XI.
According to reports, he could be exchanged with Inter Milan for striker Mauro Icardi. However, Juventus may not rule out the possibility of accepting a cash offer for the Argentine player.
Dybala has a release clause of 140 million Euros. So far the names of Liverpool and Chelsea are also in the list who have shown interest in the former Palermo player.
