The players at the top of Serie A have been busy this transfer window, with Juventus, Inter Milan and AC Milan all making moves.
Here’s a look at what each of them have been doing.1.
Juventus: Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Andrea Pirlo (Juventus)Zlatan is now the hottest name in the world, and the Ivorian international has already earned himself a place in the top 10 of the most wanted players list.
His move to Juventus is the latest of many, and it’s a huge coup for the Nerazzurri.
He will provide a much-needed boost to their defence, and with Mario Mandzukic and Dani Alves expected to leave this summer, the Italian giants have been looking for a new centre-back to back up Pirlos.
Zlaton Ibrahimovic has scored 15 goals for Juventus this season and his pace, finishing on goal more than any other player, has made him a mainstay of the Bianconeri.
He is also the club’s top scorer, with six goals in five Serie A games, and he will be reunited with PirloS superstar, Zlatans goal-scoring prowess.
He has a lot to prove, as Juventus have failed to qualify for the Champions League this season, but his signing will help cement their place in Serie A and the top-flight.
Juventus are the top side in the league and will be looking to win their first league title in a decade, but their main target will be to win the title back at the Camp Nou.2.
Inter Milan: Leonardo Bonucci (Inter Milan)Bonucci has been a huge success in the Serie A, scoring a whopping 30 goals in 23 games this season.
With only a few months remaining on his contract at the Nerazio, the Neroverse club will look to get him back on a permanent deal.
He’ll be reunited in Milan, and they will need him to take their team back to the top.
His goal-orientated play will suit the Neras new system, and Bonucci will be an important player for the Rossoneri.
He was a key player at Juventus this summer and he’ll be back to help them achieve their goal of returning to Serie A.3.
AC Milan: Alessandro Del Piero (Milan)It may be surprising to see Gianluca Di Marzio leave AC Milan, but he’s done it before.
The Italian club have been linked with the likes of Eden Hazard and Leonardo Bonatti, but the Italian coach was convinced to keep the Italian international at the club for another season.
This will be his first season at Milan, so it will be interesting to see how the Argentine will adapt to the new coach, especially with his past successes.
Del Piero is now a regular starter for the Turin giants, and will likely play an important role in their success this season as well.
He’s a big threat, and is a perfect fit for the new-look Milan.4.
AC Cagliari: Claudio Ranieri (Cagliarini)Ranieri’s departure was a surprise, but it doesn’t mean that Cagloari won’t continue on their current trajectory.
They are still in the Champions league, so the Italian side are aiming to go further in the competition, which means they will be aiming to win back their crown in the coming seasons.
The Serie A title will still belong to them, so they will still have to take care of business in the domestic league.
The new coach will be very proud of his team, but this season is also about the national team, and Caglia is looking to do the right thing for the future of the country.5.
AC Roma: Federico Pellegrini (AC)Pellegrino is the new manager at AC, replacing Andrea Conte, and his aim is to bring the club back to Serie B. They will also be looking for goals from their forwards, as the Neroes will be without Diego Milito, and are relying on Alessandro Nesta and Leonardo Di Maria to provide the attacking impetus.
With a few games left to play, the Giallorossi have already qualified for the Europa League, but that won’t stop them from looking for Champions League football, especially when the league is so difficult to play.
The Italian giants are still looking for players to help the club in the transfer market, and this transfer has done just that.
Peligri’s arrival will be a huge boost for the Gialls side, and their next target will surely be to get back into the Champions Champions League.
