More than €50m has been spent by Milan in the transfer window and the Italian giants have a number of big names that they hope will help them win the Champions League this season.
Ahead of the Serie A derby on Wednesday, we take a look at what Juventus defender Sergio Candrevas has to offer, as well as what the Bianconeri have done in the past few months to improve their chances of securing a spot in the final of the competition.
Juventus’ transfer targetsCandreva is one of the biggest names to come out of Serie A in recent years and it has been a busy few months for the Biancocelesti with the club selling their stars and bringing in new players to help them climb the table.
The 22-year-old has been part of a number, while on the wing he has been the man that has been bringing the best out of his teammates and he is a man that should be given a big contract in the future.
“I am very proud to be joining Juventus.
It’s a big challenge for me and I know the challenge will be even bigger next season,” Candrevia said.”
Juventus is a very important club for me.
I have already spoken to the coach about my new team and the players.
I know what it means to be part of the first-team and what it will mean to be playing in the Champions and that I am one of them.”
Juventus are hoping to improve on the Champions Cup final defeat they suffered in 2014 and are aiming to finish on top of the table with a top-four finish in their sights.
Candrevia will be joined by Lazio striker Mario Balotelli and Napoli midfielder Leonardo Bonucci, who will both be loaned to the Biancoli this summer.
The former is now at Fiorentina, while the latter joined Milan from Udinese earlier this month.
Juventus were in pole position to secure a place in the last 16, but a lack of quality and competition in the top flight led to the club being relegated from Serie A.
Candrea was part of Juve’s Champions League squad and the defender was named in the Italian squad for the Europa League last season and also has experience at the highest level in Spain.
The 26-year old is also set to be a big factor in the next generation of Juvi, having signed a new contract with the Bianchi in June.
The signing of Candrevi will make the club a powerhouse on the pitch this season and they look set to go all out for the final spot in Serie A, although the prospect of missing out on the competition’s last trophy remains.
