Juventus is preparing to face a crucial transfer market amid economic and institutional difficulties. The Italian club will be forced to clean up its squad, with the aim of balancing its finances and complying with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations. The club considers four exits: Bonucci, Arthur, McKennie and Zakaria.
In the last season, Juventus have faced financial and legal problems related to the investigations by Plusvalenza and Prisma, which have led to possible violations of UEFA’s financial rules. To overcome this situation, the club’s board of directors intends to reach a plea agreement with the governing body of European football, which will imply the exclusion of Juventus from the next edition of the Conference League in exchange for not appealing to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).

These circumstances will force Juventus to approach the transfer market differently, focusing on economic aspects and the need to return to the Champions League. Therefore, the main focus will be the restructuring of the workforce.
According to Fabrizio Romano, four players already know that they must look for new teams for next season: Bonucci, Arthur, McKennie and Zakaria. These footballers are on the discard list and are looking for new destinations.
Arthur could be the first to find a new team. According to reports in Italy, the Brazilian midfielder is close to reaching an agreement with Fiorentina. After a season at Liverpool on loan, where he had difficulties due to injuries and a lack of continuity, Arthur seeks to recover sensations and have more playing minutes to demonstrate his talent.
Bonucci, the historic Italian defender, will also have to leave Juventus despite having a year left on his contract. The club has informed him that he must look for a new destination. For their part, Zakaria, who was on loan at Chelsea, and McKennie, who played for Leeds, will also have to find new teams, preferably through transfers.
Juventus faces a summer of change and adjustment, where the priority will be to balance finances and prepare for a return to the Champions League. The next few days will be decisive in defining the future of these players and determining how Juventus will approach the transfer market in search of the necessary reinforcements to achieve their goals.
