Juventus president Agnelli driving clearout to save €25m-a-year in wages

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli is driving a clearout ahead of the summer market.

The coronavirus crisis in Italy has hit Juve's finances, particularly around wages, and Agnelli has already introduced a new salary ceiling.

AS says several senior players are being made available, with Miralem Pjanic, Gonzalo Higuaín and Adrien Rabiot all up for sale, while Mattia de Sciglio is now in talks with Barcelona.

Should Juve clear all four players off their books it will save €25m-a-year from their wage bill.

That will be a lift for Juve, which has already seen their players waive four months' wages to help the club through the suspension.
