Juventus are reportedly planning a post-coronavirus clearout but manager Maurizio Sarri is not allowed to touch Cristiano Ronaldo and Matthijs De Ligt.
The Italian division has been put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic, with the league taking a financial hit as clubs are prevented from taking in ticket sales and broadcasting revenue.
Teams will have to drop some stars when the transfer window opens in a bid to recoup money lost during the global crisis.
Tuttosport is reporting that Sarri is already being forced to consider selling players and the likes of Miralem Pjanic, Daniele Rugani and Mattia De Sciglio are among those possibly at risk.
But GoalBall understand Ronaldo, De Ligt and club captain Giorgio Chiellini are safe.
To control costs, Juve announced yesterday they had reached an agreement with their players and coaches to implement a wage cut.
And now Serie A too have followed after they confirmed all clubs have agreed to do the same, taking up to one third of a pay cut.
