The Serie A side – who announced a loss of £99m for the first six months of 2020-21 – have reportedly put several players on the market to stump up the funds.

Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo need to raise £85million by the end of June to balance their books
Merih Demiral, Alex Sandro, Adrien Rabiot, Aaron Ramsey, Federico Bernardeschi will all join McKennie in the transfer market this summer as Juventus look to balance their books.
It is believed Juventus will also look to make Mattia De Sciglio’s move to Lyon permanent, while Douglas Costa will return to Turin after a season-long loan spell at Bayern Munich.
Costa is, however, wanted by Gremio, but Brazilian side are unable to meet the demands set by Juventus.
Paulo Dybala is another player who will be highly sought after following the news of Juve’s financial situation.

Dybala has not yet reached an agreement to renew his contract, which is due to expire in June 2022.
Given the demand for Dybala, Juventus may use Argentinean in swap deal to acquire one of their top targets.
Alex Sandro is another player may be offered in a swap deal as Juventus eye-up Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri.
Matthijs de Ligt and Dejan Kulusevski have caught the attention of Premier League giants Manchester United.
However, Kulusevski is among the five players that Juventus are not willing to sell. As a result, the club rejected a transfer approach from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
