Three Stars To Follow Andre Pirlo Out Of Juventus

Juventus look set to miss out on the Champions League and a major upheaval could follow this summer.

They are set to surrender their nine-year reign in Serie A – with Inter Milan closing on the title.

And things could get even worse with the Old Lady are currently fourth in Serie A and are level on points with third-place Napoli and fifth-place Milan.

Andre Pirlo has already allegedly been informed he could be sacked if he doesn't qualify for the Champions League.

But the boss may not be the only one on his way should Juve fail to reach Europe’s elite competition and the financial bonuses that would bring.

Here are three of the biggest names who could leave should the Italian giants not qualify for the Champions League.


Without the tens of millions raked in via the Champions League, they would reportedly be forced to sell Ronaldo, who costs the Old Lady a gross £1million-a-week in wages, despite having a year left on his contract.


Discussions with the Argentina international are not set to begin until Juventus know whether they finish in the top four or not.

And that new huge salary of £8.7million may not be feasible should they miss out on the riches of Champions League.


Should Pirlo keep his job, he is believed to be planning a major overhaul of his squad and the former Arsenal man is one of those he wants to offload.

Pirlo and the club are desperate to keep him off the wage bill – which will intensify without Champions League football.

Brazilian Alex Sandro, 30; Adrien Rabiot, 25, and Rodrigo Bentancur, 23, are also said to be surplus to requirements with Pirlo plotting for a whole new midfield.
