Juventus' Strength In Depth For The Upcoming Season Is Scary

Juventus have strengthened what already is a squad brimming with talent.

Their acquisition of Cristiano Ronaldo from Juventus for £100 million has turned their squad to what some would describe as 'overkill,' their depth absolutely outrageous.

Just take a look at what manager Massimiliano Allegri gets to choose from next season:

The 4-3-1-2 doesn't look legal.

The classic Italian formation of 3-5-2 comes in.

Jaw-dropping.

If you weren't a follower of Serie A, Juventus are the modern day equivalent of Sir Alex Ferguson's rein of Manchester United during the Premier League golden era. Hated by supporters of most other Italian clubs - not least the southern ones - the Turin side have now won the league title seven times in a row. And the end doesn't look in sight.

It must be said, however, that Juventus were almost caught out last season to Napoli. The Naples club came within inches of clinching the title, only falling short in the final few games.

With this in mind, Juve will be looking to bolster their squad to avoid any further hiccups. They would also have the Champions League title in mind, their last win coming in 1996, with five runners-up finishes coming up since then.

But with squad, anything is possible.
