Juventus president Agnelli prepared to axe SIX senior players this summer

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has been holding a series of meetings this week with players and staff.

After seeing Juve lose the Serie A leadership to Inter Milan on the weekend, Agnelli has taken action and been holding crisis talks all week.

Agnelli has spoken with directors Fabio Paratici and Pavel Nedved, coach Maurizio Sarri and several senior players.

And it's emerged at least six of the squad are now playing for their futures.

Miralem Pjanic, Blaise Matuidi, Federico Bernardeschi, Douglas Costa, Alex Sandro and Gonzalo Higuaín will all be assessed between now and the end of the season. Agnelli and some members staff are convinced none of the six having been performing at their maximum this term.

Juve meet AC Milan tonight in the first-leg of the Coppa Italia semifinal.
