Juventus could look to sell a number of players in the summer, with Miralem Pjanic and Gonzalo Higuain tipped to leave the Serie A club, reports the Daily Mail. The paper said the 30-year-old Bosnian midfielder and 32-year-old striker, who has been on loan at Chelsea, could make way to help the club’s financial situation in light of coronavirus.
