Last Summer, it was quite obvious that Fabio Paratici failed to address Juve’s needs. Signings such as Danilo didn’t help. Hopefully, this summer Paratici gets his redemption. So, here are the reasons why Fabio Paratici needs to rebound this summer. Be sure to enjoy!

 

1. To Satisfy Fans

A lot of fans tend not to be experts. However, the power of fans shouldn’t be dismissed. A good portion of the time, clubs such as Juve, make marketing decisions to cater to fans. That’s one of the reasons why they’re successful. But, fans may boycott the club if they don’t make great player-personnel decisions. It was quite obvious that Paratici made a few blunders, last summer. In my opinion as a fan, the biggest blunder was selling Joao Cancelo and not adequately replacing him. Now, I don’t know what happens at training and in the locker room, but Paratici should’ve found a better replacement. It seemed as though, signing Danilo was done out of panic. Also, not addressing Juve’s Central Midfield probably didn’t help fan opinion. This summer, Paratici will need to come back strong if he wants fans to be satisfied.

 

 2. To Help Juve’s Chances of Winning the Champions League

We don’t know what’ll happen with the Champions League this season. However, because Paratici didn’t address Juve’s biggest needs adequately last summer, I didn’t think Juve was a serious Champions League contender this season. In my opinion, it’s obvious which areas Juve needs to address this summer. A previous article of mine talks about one of them. Here is the article. I’d argue Juve’s biggest need to become a serious Champions League contender, is their central midfield. Since 2017, Juve has lacked a top central midfielder. For Paratici to redeem himself, he’ll need to look into signing a top central midfielder. I know that’s not a simple signing. But, to be a serious contender for the Champions League, that’s a must! Another position on the squad, Paratici needs to seriously address this summer is at right-back. Since Lichtsteiner left, Juve has lacked a right-back that can defend well and influence the attack at the same time. Anyways, for Paratici to rebound in July and August, he needs to make signings that’ll give Juve a great chance at winning the Champions League.

Paratici will definitely have a massive challenge trying to address Juve’s needs while adapting to the possibly unusual Summer Transfer Window this year. Thank you for reading this article on why Fabio Paratici needs to rebound this summer.

AC Milan’s Needs in the Summer Transfer Window

Coming into the season, AC Milan had high hopes. However, it hasn’t turned out well for them, so far. This summer may revive the hopes of the club and fans. So, here is an article on AC Milan’s needs in the Summer Transfer Window.

 

A Leader On The Field

When Zlatan Ibrahimovic came back to Milan in January, I pointed out in this article, that one of the reasons he’d help AC Milan is his leadership qualities. Obviously, he’s brought a ton of leadership to the squad so far this season. However, there’s a good chance he won’t re-sign with the Rossoneri in the summer. Therefore, I think that AC Milan will need to look elsewhere to find a proven leader on the field, considering how young a lot of their players are. It’s tough to say who AC Milan should go for in the summer.  This would be difficult, but I would suggest that AC Milan should go for Thiago Silva in the Summer. His contract expires on June 30th. Also, he has proven to be a leader on PSG and the Brazilian National squad.  Hence, why he was named PSG’s captain some seasons ago.

 

A Right-Back

AC Milan definitely needs to address their backline in the summer. I’m sure a lot of fans would agree with that assessment. One position that I think needs to be addressed is at right-back. It’s no secret that Andrea Conti is injury-prone and unfortunately, that doesn’t make him a reliable right-back. Also, I personally believe that Davide Calabria is a good backup right-back. However, I don’t think he’s good enough to be playing the minutes he has. The question is, who can AC Milan sign to address this need. It’s tough to say because it’s very difficult to find a top right-back and at a cheap price. Also, consider some clubs have the better financial muscle and they need a right-back as well.

 

A Centre-Back

When AC Milan bought Mateo Musacchio in 2017, there were many reasons to be excited. Indeed, he was a standout player for Villareal and they thought that maybe Romagnoli would finally get the help he deserved. However, signing him has been a disaster, to say the least.  Romagnoli has had to carry even more of the weight of the backline on his shoulders. Leo Duarte has been a decent partner for Romagnoli. However, I don’t believe he’s been good enough to not sign another centre-back in the summer. However, if AC Milan is somehow able to sign Thiago Silva in the summer, I believe he’ll address two of these issues. I’ll repeat it again, just in case AC Milan’s Upper-Management hasn’t seen it before. Please, try your best to sign Thiago Silva in the summer!

 

An Attacking-Oriented Central Midfielder

I definitely consider signing an attacking-oriented central midfielder a need for AC Milan. However, I think that other needs should be addressed first before this one. Notably, their backline. However, this is still a need, nonetheless.  It seems as though they are fine at the defensive midfield position, as they have Franck Kessie and Bennacer. Both have shown that they’re capable of being starters in that position for AC Milan, at least in my view. However, they lack central midfielders that can orchestrate attacking plays. Bonaventura is awesome, however, he tends to get injuries. I have nothing against his play on the field. But, I think that AC Milan should consider signing a more reliable midfielder with a similar playing style as him.

Indeed, it’s apparent from this article that AC Milan has a bunch of needs heading into the Summer Transfer Window. However, it may not be easy to address all these issues so fast.

Napoli’s Biggest Needs in the Summer Transfer Window

Napoli’s fans and players will definitely want to forget that this season happened, altogether. However, maybe this season was good because it highlighted lingering Napoli has had for some seasons. So, here are Napoli’s biggest needs in the Summer Transfer Window!

The Right-wing Position

Jose Callejon was once an effective player for Napoli. However, it’s been obvious for a while, that isn’t the case anymore. He’s definitely past his prime and Napoli should get rid of him or buy a right-winger to take his place. Now, of course, there’s Hirving Lozano who Napoli bought in the Summer of 2019. But, he hasn’t gotten a lot of playing time over the course of this season and hasn’t proven he can be a consistent starter, yet. Napoli should at least keep him though, as he still has tons of potential. It’s pretty clear to me that Napoli has lacked a substantial attacking threat down the right side of the field and it’s something they need to address in the summer.

The Left-back Position

Faouzi Ghoulam has definitely proven he’s more than capable of being a starter for Napoli. Unfortunately, his flaw is that he’s injury-prone. Now, I’m not trying to say Napoli should sell him, but they should at least buy a left-back that can at least compete for a starting place with him. Mario Rui has warranted a lot of criticism, in my opinion. He’s not the worst at contributing on the offensive end. However, defensively, he definitely leaves himself exposed multiple times over the course of each match. Therefore, I believe Napoli should look to sell him in the summer. Especially, if they’ve already bought another left-back.

Conclusion

Whichever needs you believe that Napoli has to address in the Summer Transfer Window, one thing is clear. That’s the fact that Napoli needs to improve next season, as this season they’ve performed way below expectations.
