Juventus Update: May 2017

May was a month full of joy and satisfaction for Juventus.

Starting with the victory against AS Monaco in the Champions League semi-finals, Juve then beat Lazio in the Coppa Italia final, thanks to goals from Leonardo Bonucci and Dani Alves.

At the Juventus Stadium, which will be named the "Allianz Stadium" from July due to a sponsorship deal, we celebrated the sixth consecutive league, the thirty-fifth of Juventus' history. After these victories we had a dream to crown: the Treble.

And so we came to the Champions League final, played on Saturday 3 June against Real Madrid, but it ended in the worst of the ways.

After a good first half from Juve, with Cristiano Ronaldo's opener cancelled out by a wonderful Mario Mandzukic goal, the second half was one-way traffic as Real put three more past the Bianconeri for a 4-1 defeat.

We must thank our team who fought til the end and made it a legendary season.

Other good news came in the form of Mandzukic renewing his contract until 2020 and also head coach Massimiliano Allegri also committing to the club for three more years,

Alves, however, has reportedly given Juve an ultimatum in wanting a new deal until 2019, so this will need to be monitored.

With the Italian national team Claudio Marchisio has suffered another injury, which does not seem to be serious, but will be checked.

Now the transfer season begins and Juve will have to be careful to not lose their most valuable players such as Leonardo Bonucci, Paulo Dybala and Alex Sandro, who many teams want.

Meanwhile, we have already found an agreement with Sampdoria for Patrick Schick, a young, strong striker, for £25m.

As second goalkeeper for next year, Juve is said to be interested in Arsenal's Wojciech Szczesny, who was on loan at Roma, to whom we have already offered £4m a year.

Perhaps next season will be Gianluigi Buffon's last and next year he will try to win what he didn't win this year. For next season we must to have a competitive team to get back stronger than before!

I honestly don't feel the Champions League final can take anything a way from Juventus, I am very proud of them and delighted for their fans (especially those I know). Two teams in great form met in the final and sadly Real Madrid was just unstoppable. I don't agree with the fault people express on social media to Buffon - he's still a great keeper.

Just pleased things are continuing for them.
