Despite the financial implications of the coronavirus pandemic, speculation persists that Juventus wish to make some major additions before the end of the summer transfer window.
Although he is due to turn 34 years of age at the beginning of 2021, Luis Suarez is said to be on the radar of the Italian giants after newly-appointed Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman informed the Uruguayan that he does not feature in his plans.
While that naturally throws up the possibility of a star-studded partnership with Cristiano Ronaldo, Andrea Pirlo must take other factors into consideration when deciding on his preferred starting XI.
With that in mind, Sports Mole takes a look at how the Serie A champions could line up at the beginning of the upcoming campaign.
All things considered, Pirlo may be against using two veterans in a team which he wishes to develop over a number of years, but Suarez would naturally slot in down the middle of the attack should he arrive in Turin.
Given the personnel in the dressing room, Pirlo has the option of using a diamond formation in midfield, with three defensive-minded players combining with Aaron Ramsey in a more creative role behind Ronaldo and Suarez.
Should Pirlo take that approach, Ramsey would almost certainly find himself dropping down to the substitutes' bench with preference given to cover in defensive areas.
