Juve’s plans for next season revealed: Allegri out, Felipe Anderson in

Juventus have begun planning for next season, Fabrizio Romano reveals. The club has already decided to part ways with Massimiliano Allegri at the end of the current campaign and is on the verge of securing its first signing for next season. Lazio’s winger, Felipe Anderson, is said to be very close to joining the Turin-based outfit in July. The Brazilian’s contract with Lazio expires in the summer, and Juve have acted quickly by already offering him a formal proposal.

Juventus are currently 3rd in the Serie A standings on 62 points, 20 behind leaders Inter. Allegri began his 2nd stint with the team in the summer of 2021, replacing Andrea Pirlo. Allegri has failed to win any trophies in his 2nd spell, highly contrasting to the 5 Serie A titles and 4 Coppa Italia triumphs he masterminded during his 1st spell at Juve between 2014 and 2019.

Felipe Anderson, who will turn 31 years of age next week, is nearing the end of his 2nd period with the Eagles from Rome. Lazio is the first European team in Anderson’s professional career, joining them from Santos in July of 2013. After 5 successful seasons, Anderson was bought by West Ham for €38 million, but he did not last long in the English Premier League. After 2 seasons, the Brazilian winger moved on loan to Porto in 2020. In the summer of 2021, Felipe Anderson returned to Lazio. During the current 2023/24 campaign, he has played 43 matches in all competitions, scoring 3 goals and providing 7 assists.
