Technical-tactical and economic, it is always about balance. It is the principle that is inspiring Juventus’ strategies for the attack and the two aspects coincide, pushing towards what it seems, and in absolute terms, a lowering of the level of objectives, but certainly not of ambitions. Mauro Icardi and Gabriel Jesus, the hottest names until Easter, have been overtaken by Arkadiusz Milik and Raul Jimenez and there is no doubt that the Argentine of Inter on loan at Paris Saint-Germain and the Brazilian of Manchester City have something more than Polish than Naples and the Mexican del Wolverhampton.

The Juventus club would not be able to argue and would have to choose another path for the post Ronaldo. But to find it, he will still have time until 2022: the year in which, for example, in addition to the CR7 contract with the Juventus Kylian’s will also expire Mbappe with the Paris Saint-Germain…
