5 Most Regretted Player Transfers of the Last Decade

Over the years, Juventus supporters have been accustomed to the ‘if the player asks to leave, he can leave’ mantra when it comes to outgoing transfers. Here, we take a look at some sales of players that Juventus could have likely used at this point in the season.

5) Joao Cancelo to Manchester City (2019/2020 season)

Rumoured to be sold for tactical and attitude problems, Joao Cancelo could have filled Juventus's gap in currently needing a versatile, attacking full back. In Pirlo’s 3-4-1-2, Cancelo could have perhaps been more impactful in matches than Alex Sandro and Juan Cuadrado - especially in the attacking third. With the balance that Juve shows in the defensive phase, the Portuguese would be a great fit.

4) Ciro Immobile to Torino (2013/2014 season)

Sold for lack of experience and having no space for him to play, one could only imagine how beautiful it would be to see Immobile running the channels, playing alongside Ronaldo. At the time, Immobile was only a slightly above average striker. During this season, Carlos Tevez and Llorente were the preferred striking force, therefore it was right for him to move. What stings for Juventus fans is that for the last few years, he has been dominating Serie A.

3) Moise Kean to Everton (2019-2020 season)

Sold for his attitude? The jury is still out on this one. Currently, Kean seems to be in good form - scoring loads of goals for a very good PSG team, continuing his found form at Juve. If one were to take away the year at Everton, it would not be hard to see that this young man is budding star. He’s a young Italian with immense potential, something Juventus typically have an eye for - Kean could've gained valuable experience with this Juventus side.

2) Kingsley Coman to Bayern Munich (2015-2016 season)

Coman was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Being a young, explosive, dynamic player - I have a feeling that he would fit right in with Chiesa and Kulusevski, bringing excitement and productivity to Juventus' play. The Frenchmen could have been so lethal, leading the Old Lady's counter attacks. He can play across all attacking positions, and would have been sure to thrive under Andrea Pirlo.

1) Paul Pogba to Manchester United (2016-2017 season)

With Paul Pogba's move to Manchester United, he went from one of the best midfields in the world, to a bang average one for quite some time. As he is now slowly finding his form once again, Paul can still dominate games whenever he pleases, and has a very rare skill set of power and class. I'm sure it would not be an unpopular notion if Juventini can one day bring PogBACK!
