  1. Juventus are always Juventus.” Juve was the only club in Italy that could keep him in Italy. The rest of the league should be kissing Juve’s backside after bringing in the likes of Ronaldo to raise the profile of the league and for keeping gems like Vlahovic in Italy.

  2. @frankie u have said it all…say no more bro! JUVE 4 LIFE!!! FORZA JUVENTUS!!! & Welcome home Vlahovic we are juventus!

  3. I thought Juve was struggling for money and running at a loss and thats why they needed the Super league?

    Where did this money come from?

  4. @Gee Juve had a capital investment from their parent company which covered their losses plus gave a little bit of a piggy bank for these types of signings. By all means the books aren’t great and we will see some big changes with expiring contracts not being renewed or at a lesser value. I also expect some sales and if Ramsey doesn’t leave a buy out which while it will be a loss, it would be less then paying him the length of his contract.

  5. I am happy to see Vlahovic come, but as I am being realistic, expectations have to be looked at in a sensible manner. This addition will not make any difference for us short term as there is no midfield. Remember when we had CR7. All the goals were burdened on one man. Vlahovic is going to be asked to do the same thing, but he and nobody is CR7. Only prime Messi could reach those heights and more. Unless the midfield changes and we get new full backs, nothing will change.
