- Juventus players and staff may face the chop at the end of the ongoing season
- That is if they should fail to finish among the top four on the League table
- The likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Ramsey and other may be sold
Entire staff and players of reigning Italian champions Juventus have reportedly been put on trial for the rest of the season and there could be serious consequence should the Old Lady fail to qualify for next season's Champions League.
So far this season in all competitions, Juventus have not been performing well as they recently got bundled out of the prestigious Champions League which has put manager Pirlo under pressure.
Currently, Juventus are occupying fourth position on the League table with 56 points and they are on the same point with Napoli who occupy fifth after the same number of games played.
According to the report on Daily Mail, Andrea Agnelli who is the chairman of Juventus is planning to disband the team at the end of the season if they fail to make the top four.
Despite winning the League title last season, it would be recalled that Maurizio Sarri was sacked just because of his failure in the Champions League competition.
As things stand now in Turin, the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Aaron Ramsey, Adrien Rabiot, Paulo Dybala, Matthijs De Ligt, Alvaro Morata could be sold at the end of the season.
Agnelli fears mistakes are being repeated, the team is not improving, and sees an indifferent attitude in the team's stars that are deemed to be the main problems.
The report added that without the Champions League competition next term, it would be hard for Juventus to pay the wages of some big names at the club.
Gianluigi Buffon and Giorgio Chiellini are already being allowed to move on, saving around £8.5million-per-year.
