Juventus Turin is said to be looking for a new left-back who will replace Alex Sandro by next summer at the latest. Raphael Guerreiro and Juan Bernat are probably on the list.
After an extremely mixed start to the season, rumors about Juventus Turin are increasing. Coach Max Allegri is said to be on the brink, the name Antonio Conte haunts Turin as the desired successor.
In addition, the old lady is associated with some players. Evan N'Dicka is said to be on the Italian record champions' wish list, as is Raphael Guerreiro. The latter could succeed Alex Sandro at Juve.
The 31-year-old Brazilian's contract expires next summer. Those responsible for Juve should no longer be really satisfied with the left-back's performance. After seven Juve years, Sandro's time could end next summer.
Guerreiro is said not to be the only left-back on the list. According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Juve are also interested in ex-Bayern defender Juan Bernat. The Spaniard is only the second choice on the left at PSG behind Nuno Mendes, but still has a contract in Paris until 2025. Accordingly, a fee would be due from Bernat.
Juve had already signed Di Maria and Paredes from Paris this summer. 2023 could follow with Bernat, the third in the group.
Both rumors are not really concrete yet. Tuttosport and Gazzetta dello Sport are also known for being quite speculative and doing name dropping. The fact that Guerreiro in particular could become a candidate at Juve is given by the fact that his contract - as of now - is expiring. It is rather doubtful whether Bernat would be the desired solution for the Bianconeri.
