Top 5 free transfers Juventus have picked up

Top 5 free transfers Juventus have picked up

Juventus are at it again, working their magic in the free agent market to snap up Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey.

The deal isn’t done yet and the Welsh international is said to still be considering his options with his contract up at the end of the season at the Emirates Stadium.

However, the Welsh international is said to be leaning heavily towards a move to Turin, and if he does decide on the Old Lady, he’ll join a healthy list of players who have enjoyed a successful spell with the Serie A champions after signing on a free.

Juventus have a healthy record of succeeding with free agents and here are our picks of their best pieces of free business in recent years.

Kingsley Coman

Kingsley Coman gets onto this list, but admittedly through financial reasons, rather than footballing ones.

Coman started his career with French giants PSG, becoming the youngest player to represent the club at 16 years, eight months and four days. However, he failed to win a new contract after featuring just three times in the league.

That proved to be to the benefit of Juventus, who snapped up Coman on a five-year deal. He only spent one of those years in Turin, before being loaned out for two years to Bayern Munich for a €7 million fee.

He impressed Pep Guardiola so much during that time, making 44 appearances, that Bayern opted to sign him permanently at the end of the two-year loan spell.

Bayern paid €21 million to activate their option to buy fee on Coman, taking Juventus’ earnings up to €28 million on the player they signed for free from PSG.

Coman has since enjoyed a relatively successful time at Bayern Munich, but he has only made 25 league appearances since joining permanently in 2017. Juventus will feel they made the right decision, especially given the money they earned on the player.

Dani Alves

Dani Alves spent just one season in Turin, but he proved to be a fantastic signing for Juventus.

They snapped him on a free signing from Spanish giants Barcelona following his hugely successful eight-year spell in Catalonia.

Alves didn’t quite have the legs for Barcelona’s demanding style at that point, but he proved he had enough in the tank to remain one of the world’s best full-back.

He played 19 times in the league for Juventus during the 2016/17 season, adding plenty more appearances in the cup and Champions League.

He netted seven goals in all competitions, helping Juventus to a memorable double-winning season.

Alves also played a pivotal role in the Turin club’s run to the Champions League final, earning him a spot on the FIFPRO XI for the seventh time in his terrific career.

At the end of his contract and following defeat in the Champions League final, Alves departed for French giants PSG.

Paul Pogba

This man makes the list for both performance and financial reasons. He joined Juventus in 2012 after refusing a new contract with Manchester United.

He went on to make 124 league appearances, scoring 28 goals over four years in Turin, winning four Serie A titles, two Coppa Italia titles and two Supercoppa Italiana titles.

During that time, he also established himself as a regular France international, going on to win the world cup in 2018 after he had left Italy.

He scored a plethora of incredible goals during his time in white and black, and that’s what caught the eye of Manchester United.

The Old Trafford giants ended up re-signing Pogba for a mouth-watering £89.3 million, a world-record fee at the time, resulting in a monumental profit for Juventus.

Pogba proved to be a successful free agent signing on all front for Juventus.

Sami Khedira

The world-cup winning midfielder signed for Juventus on a free from Real Madrid in the summer of 2015 and he has enjoyed success in Turin.

As ever with Khedira, injuries have restricted him, and he has only made 83 league appearances in his three years at the club, but he has managed 20 league goals in that time.

He’s also managed three titles, one for each year he has spent with the club, winning three Coppa Italia titles along the way.

The 31-year-old is nearing the end of his career, but his influence will remain huge in the dressing room. Khedira is as good off the pitch as he is on it.

He’s a born winner and he’ll retire as one of the most successful German players. He has won at least one league title in each country in which he has played club football, he’s won a Champions League, a World Cup and plenty of domestic cups.

Signing Khedira on a free was a no-brainer for Juventus and they continue to benefit from that great piece of business.

Andrea Pirlo

We had to save the best until last. Andrea Pirlo, his name almost tells the story. A legend of the game.Pirlo signed for Juventus in 2011, following 10 years with Serie A rivals AC Milan, where he won two Champions League titles, two Serie A titles and two Super Cups, among other honours.

The world-cup winning Italy international went on to stick around for four years at Juventus, making 119 league appearances.

He won a Serie A title in all four of his seasons with the club, also winning a Coppa Italia and two Supercoppa Italiana titles.

He also picked up a number of individual awards, winning the Serie A Player of the Year in three of those four seasons, making the Serie A Team of the Season in all four.

International and club team-mate Gianluigi Buffon described Pirlo as the “signing of the century” for Juventus, and he wasn’t far wrong.

Pirlo is a genius of the game and Juventus could only win by snapping him up for free. He didn’t disappoint in his four seasons with the Old Lady.
