Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has revealed manager Antonio Conte will have £40 million to spend in January.

Conte was left to find funds himself in the summer after he sold Mirko Vucinic for £13 million but will now be able to reinforce as he wishes in the winter transfer window.

Agnelli has said the money has come from Juve’s positive start to the season, in particular their performance in the UEFA Champions’ League and that he trusts Conte will buy effectively.

“It was disappointing not to have much to spend in the summer but after a solid few months, our financial state has improved dramatically and we can return to the market with full force.

“Conte will have £40 million to spend if he wishes and we trust he will be able to pick out anyone that we need appropriately in order for us to continue to grow.”

The news of Juventus’ cash injection comes just weeks after Agnelli publicised Juventus’ compliance with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play rules, projecting a £100 million profit.

“We have made great strides in recent years and people are now realising that Juventus are coming back to the top.

“Our finances continue to improve, we have an optimum new stadium and people are desperate to pack it out and see us play. It’s with great pleasure that I see us moving onto a new level.”
Great results and Vietto looks an awesome buy. Absolute bargain! Will you be looking at a keeper in january? cos buffon and storari are fairly ancient :P unless you have some youth prospects that is a keeper!
£40m is a lot haha, spend it wisely! :P
patrick1 - Yeah, Vietto looks special. I'm looking at keepers but I don't think we'll see one arrive until next season. Buffon has been great.
Thats brillant, thats unbelievebale!!!!

You manage Juve fantastic! Vietto looks like a monster and i also will buy him for my new Inter try!

Keep it up!!
Piquenbauer - I'd recommend Vietto highly ;)
Great news from mister president!

Juventus’ Player of the Month

Fernando Llorente

Llorente has been pretty decent since his arrival in the summer and finally edged the award over his teammates this month with three crucial goals. He’s a misleading tall striker who has the ability to pass but most importantly, has given us a new dimension to our game when pairing up with the smaller figure of Luciano Vietto.

Conte’s Verdict

This month was tough for us and you can see just how difficult it was for us by how close our results have been in comparison to previous months. The important part was not to lose ground in the Serie A and we didn’t, now leading the league by a staggering 14 point margin. Secondly, it was vitally important that we managed to beat AC Milan, purely for rivalry purposes. It wasn’t an entirely comfortable game as expected but we shun bright in the end. I was disappointed not to have beaten Anderlecht again but they just seemed to want it more. Nevertheless, we are yet to taste defeat this season in all competitions and now can look forward to a hard earned winter break to recharge our batteries. May 2014 bring lots of joy to Juve fans.
Unstoppable in the league :D
