Juventus’ wasteful investments – almost half a billion spent with little to show for it

Juventus have spent over €450m net over the last five seasons but have little to show for such hefty investments.

The Bianconeri were keen to close the gap with the top teams in Europe after Massimiliano Allegri guided the team to two Champions League finals in three years and in the summer of 2018 serious investments were made to try and raise the level of the squad. Considering the club’s decline over the last few years, their work has not paid off and now the club are in a tough spot.

Juventus seem unlikely to reach the Round of 16 of the Champions League following their defeat to Maccabi Haifa earlier this week, a painful result in both a sporting and economic sense. 

La Gazzetta dello Sport examined Juventus’ work in the transfer market across the last five seasons, revealing that the team have spent around €455m net in transfer fees, investments that haven’t produced the desired results on the pitch.

  1. Never a big club to begin with on or off the field. To help, the bush leaguers need to send an envoy to Munich and see how a bigger club operates on a daily basis. A trip to the States is another work experience mission to be explored. They can study all different franchises from across the sectors to learn profit margins and economics 101.

  2. At the same time PhD Maccabi, Saint Haifa should be given a ritiro timeout in the okinawa mountains. A visit to a shinto shrine could shed new CALMAAA!!! and breathe renewed life into mountain goat calcio fiesta. Bush league 2.0

  3. Buy italian players very simple they have to many useless foreign players that don’t care and have no heart. Go back to they way they used to be when agnelli senior was in charge. Foreign. Players eventually fade very rare they go all the way.

  4. Oh Lord, is that really you? your sarcasm is lacking is usual wit and intelligence.

    Perhaps Max is coaching your posting now?

  5. @Ace of duds try forming a coherent sentence first and foremost. Also work on basic grammar and punctuation. Proof reading can help you. Your first sentence demonstrates that the village you come from is definitely missing it’s idiot.

  6. Lord Allegri – never a good idea to lecture people on grammar and then immediately make a basic grammatical mistake. You mean “missing its idiot”, no apostrophe. “It’s” = “it is”.

  7. Look you all have made errors. That being said, @Lord still comes out on top for the best posts here at FI and even greater logo.

  8. @ Lord
    I’m sure I’m not the only one, who thinks you and Cypher are the same person.
    So much nonsense and blahblah.

  9. Haha! L.A. with his usual mix of rubbish and over-inflated ego.

    First, he repeats the same worn out drivel that a small part of the community seem to thrive on. Then, he receives some criticism, but realizes that his fragile ego can’t take it and thus proceeds to “retaliate” by trying to find fault with the other person.

    He may not realize it, but he and Allegri have a lot more in common than he’d care to admit.

    The difference is, Allegri is rich while this “Lord Allegri” is an absolute nobody.

  10. zzzzz. My god ^^^ you are a really sad person. At least @LA is creative enough to do the work and come up with a legendary logo design. To create a dedicated name is proof that he has triggered you so hard but you cannot see it.

  11. @Please Ban Lord Allegri, SPOT ON! That troll and Allegri are like twins. They are both toxic and disliked by many people. What an arrogant person and a boring one too. The difference is as you’ve said, Allegri is rich while this “Lord Allegri” is an absolute nobody.

  12. Pintu not a good idea to copy someone’s words literally word for word. Either that or you are using the alias @Please Ban. Inhale and exhale. Agree with @forza triggered for sure.
