Playing Juve for first time. Already a great squad but can anyone suggest players I can buy to improve?

Budget is 3 million as already bought a defender for 15m+
I am in my 3rd season of Juventus and have totally reshaped the squad. The only original players still remaining are Chiellini, Bonucci, Buffon(not used though),and Vidal (absolutely worth keeping). I still have Matri, Simone Pepe, and Luca Marrone, but the three of them have spent the last 2 seasons on loan. (Matri is fairly good and you can use him). Of course a lot of the players I sold are very good but I was able to get good fees. I didn't win anything in the 1st season, but won the league/Italian Cup in the 2nd and made it to the champion's cup final. In the current season I am leading the league and in the Italian Cup semi final.
You can sell Krasic for around 25 mil, he is a solid player but at 28 i think that is a good fee, I was able to get Antonio Valencia as a replacement for 1/3 of the price, and he ended up playing better.
You need a new left back ASAP - Paolo De Ceglie is a joke. I picked up Aly Cissokho and Sime Vrslalkjo (trained to play both sides) and both have been excellent.
Buffon still has one more very good year and about 2-3 decent years left, but I would get a new GK. I got Marc Andre Ter-Stegen (in the 2nd season) and he has been very solid, have led the league in goals conceded since I got him, he is not even 22 yet and I'm sure he will only get better.
Also, you can't get him until the 2nd season, but you co-own Sebastian Giovinco who is one of the best Italian players in the game and is currently averaging about 7.4 as a left winger on my team.
Other players I eventually bought include: Tevez, Sturridge, Gylfi Sigurdsson, Antoine Griezmann, Alberto Paloschi, Javier Mascherano, Ezequiel Munoz, Jack Rodwell, Kyle Walker, Eduardo (Croatian striker). I don't normally reshape my team this much but it has been fun and mostly a success so far with this team.
I couldn't get an offer of more than 16 mil for Krasic and I don't want to sell him for just this, what do you suggest?

Parma won't sell me their 50% of Giovinco to me and have the option to keep him for a whole season, what do I do?

Also I am in Champions League and need 4 home grown players but only have 2 in my first team, who did you keep for this?
Hi, i have also reshaped a lot from the original squad. I sold bought Storari and Manninger and so backup was Branescu were in the 1st season he played about 3 games because of an injury to buffon, he got one or 2 clean sheets and played decent. In defence i sold Motta, Grosso, loaned Sorensen for half a season were he played all games for Vitesse. Bought in Prestia, he is playing with the youth team and Vertonghen. I bought Manolov from PSV because of an long injury to Leicsteiner. While in January i got Romario and Tremoulinas were he played really well instead of De Geglie. (Bought him for about 10mill). Bdw i had a board take over, currently in ended my 1st season and they have gave me about 50mill tranfer budget) In midfield i loaned Marrone to Braga were he made 7assists. I felt tht the mid was a needed strenghting so i bought Vass from Brescia, Verrati one of my best buys were he played regularly with the first team and also made 6 assists. Also bougth Eriksen but i didn't play an attack mid and will probably sell him as i am disapointed with him. In attack i sold a lot of the high earners that included Amuri, Iaqinta and Loca Toni and loaned out Libertazzi. Instead i bought Wilfried but only played in the last month becuase of a 6months injury (he is very injury prone), while i also got Niang, were he plays with the youth team. I got in as well Valencia Joel (but again had about a 2months injury) and Anderson. I january i also bought in Munian for about 15mill. Took some time to adjust but is currently playing really well, playing as lw or fw. Currently i have bought in Ekdal and bought a couple of youngster to boast my youth team who won the youth league. I am currently considering selling Pazienza and Quagliarella. Dissapointed about the fact that i didn't manage to get Giovinco back. Don't sell Krasic not even for 20mill. I was going to sell him for 10m and he started playing really well, scored 13 goals with 9 assists.
albin ekdal is must have player,can bring him for 4-5 mil,and he's great.also kara is good for backup and very cheap,can play couple of postions.
