Juventus Are Kings Of The Transfer Window With £30 Million Net Spend

Juventus have retained their transfer window crown after another extremely productive summer.

In terms of business, The Old Lady have brought in a mixture of experience and youth without spending a great deal of cash.

The recent arrival of Matthijs De Ligt for £67.5 million is their biggest purchase of the summer but they have certainly balanced the books in the meantime.

Leonardo Spinazzola joined Italian rivals AS Roma in a reported £26.3 million deal, while Emil Audero, Stefano Sturaro and Mattia Perin have departed for a combined £46.2 million.

Juve have brought in a number of quality free transfers too, just like they have on so many occasions down the years.

Gianluigi Buffon, Aaron Ramsey and Adrien Rabiot have all arrived in Turin with no transfer fee involved, not to mention the clever signing of Brazilian teenager Wesley on a free transfer from Flamengo.

Since 2009, the club have signed Fabio Cannavaro, Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba and Kingsley Coman on a free - which is quite frankly ridiculous.

Merih Demiral, Cristian Romero and Luca Pellegrini have also been brought in to give the Serie A champions further options in defensive areas.

Juventus manager Maurizio Sarri will have a real selection headache in the coming months.

I mean, just check out their squad depth and tell me they won't challenge for every trophy known to man this season.

As well as having strong defensive options this season, Sarri will have Federico Bernardeschi, Juan Cuadrado, Douglas Costa, Paulo Dybala, Mario Mandzukic and in Moise Kean in their attacking ranks.

Even the returning Gonzalo Higuain has the potential to play a part in his plans.

Do you think Juventus will challenge for the Champions League this season?
