The coronavirus or COVID-19 pandemic has led to a complete lockdown in the world of football with all the major leagues in the world currently suspended, with clubs asking their players to self-isolate and follow individual training regimes at home.
Many clubs are set to be affected financially by the outbreak, which could lead to the top teams forced to sell some of their top stars and high earners in order to to recoup money lost during the global crisis.
According to the Sun, Juventus could be one of the clubs forced to sell their stars with manager, Maurizio Sarri being told to let go of some players with the likes of Miralem Pjanic, Daniele Rugani and Mattia De Sciglio named as among those possibly at risk.
However, it is understood that star striker, Cristiano Ronaldo, Matthijs de Ligt and club skipper, Giorgio Chiellini are among those who are safe and will not be sold at any price in the summer.
It will be interesting to see how this situation pans out considering that there is no fixed date as to when the summer transfer window will start considering that all the major leagues in the world are currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic – with it still being uncertain as to whether the current season will resume in the near future.
