The 5 Juventus Stars Set To Leave After Champions League Exit

Juventus could miss out on Champions League football next season following their 3-0 defeat at home to AC Milan on Sunday.

Andrea Pirlo has endured a miserable debut campaign in the hot-seat, winning just 20 out of 35 matches in Serie A this term.

So if the Old Lady fail to secure a place in the Champions League next season, which players could head for the Turin exit this summer?

Cristiano Ronaldo

Talk of a potential departure for the Portuguese superstar was already rife before their place in the top four became under serious threat.

It is difficult to envisage him sticking around and playing Europa League football next season, meaning a move back to Real Madrid or Manchester United could come to fruition.

Matthijs de Ligt

Should the Italian giants miss out on qualification, De Ligt could push for a summer departure amid reported interest from Barcelona and Chelsea.

Paulo Dybala

The Argentina international, with a year remaining on his contract, has long been linked with a move away from Juve, and failure to qualify for the Champions League may force them to cash in on him and raise funds this summer.

Alex Sandro

Another Juve ace whose future has been the subject of speculation for many a year, Sandro has been attracting attention from a host of clubs and could push for a transfer if Champions League football is not on the cards next term.

Dejan Kulusevski

With his contract not due to expire until 2025 it will be more difficult to prise him away from Turin this summer.

Nevertheless, with Manchester United reportedly eyeing up a potential move, failure to qualify for the Champions League could turn Kulusevski's head.
