Andrea Pirlo's annual income has been released and the newly appointed manager will earn higher than three of his senior squad members.
The Bianconeri legend took over from Maurizio Sarri shortly after they were booted out of the Champions League by Lyon.
Juve President Andrea Agnelli immediately appointed the former Italy international who was set to handle the U23 side of the club from next season.
And Pirlo's small wage packet that he agreed with the Serie A side have been revealed by Italian news media outlet Gazzetta dello Sport.
The veteran midfielder will take home just £1.6million-per-year which will be higher three out of Juve's 23 senior players.
Merih Demiral(£1.6m), Gianluigi Buffon(£1.3m) and Carlo Pinsoglio(£0.2m) are the three players who would earn lower their new manager.
But Cristiano Ronaldo will continue to be the club's most paid player as the Portuguese star will rake in £28m-per-year.
Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt is next in line with £7.2m while Gonzalo Higuain is third with a salary of £6.7m and Miralem Pjanic is fourth with an annual take home of £6.7m.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Juventus are reportedly ready to offer Arsenal three of their players in a bid to land Alexander Lacazette.
Arsenal are said to be desperate to get Lacazette off their wage bill and Juventus have emerged as potential suitors.
According to Mirror UK citing The Athletic, Juve are looking to bolster their attack this summer, with Andre Pirlo who was recently appointed new manager looking in the way of Lacazette.
Legit.ng had earlier reported that Alvaro Morata could be working together with his former teammate Andrea Pirlo who has now become Juventus coach.
The Atletico Madrid striker and the newly appointed Juve boss played together for just one season during the 2014-15 campaign when they made it through to the Champions League finals but lost to Barcelona.
Morata made a good impression after that season and returned to parent club Real Madrid after his successful two-season loan spell in Turin.
