I've been watching Juventus in recent months and loving their play, In particular, I've loved Madzukic's new role on the left wing. I've been wondering how to best recreate his role. Instead of the 352 they have become famous for, this has been Juve's 11 lately. I have been using Mario in 2 different roles so far and haven't had the effect I've wanted yet. First as an inside forward told to hold the ball up and sit narrow. He has the positional sense I want but doesn't use his physicality to best opponents also his dribbling leaves much to be desired. The Second is, as a wide target man, told to sit narrow and to cross less often ( Mandzukic rarely crosses in games instead Alex Sandro provides the crosses from the left side). This uses his physicality, but I find he is often on the periphery of games and doesn't have much influence. I'm interested to hear how you guys would approach deploying a player like Mandzukic in fm 17.
I'm not familiar with Juventus and I'm a bit worried with this squad. I have 3 old fullbacks in Alves, Forest Gump and Evra. At least Gump and Evra seem likely to retire soon. One of them I can replace I guess with DR Lirola 2* player and with big potential but I'm not sure what to do for the other 2. Actually it seems Sandro, Asamoah and De Ceglie are good enough for DL. Both Evra and Gump seem to be worth peanuts but they clear some wage and their contracts run out next year. Tho Gump's might be worth renewing as he is only 32 and his fitness is good. Alves is 33 and out in 2 but he has even better fitness. I see Real's Danilo is listed for ~8m says my scout. Could be more. there is very good central mid depth ( tho I have marchisio and another guy injured 3-4 months). The striker options are good too. Buffon is also very old. I got Marricchi and loanee Saro with some >3.5* PA but they are way too raw now and Saro costs 1mil to buy this year. His backup Neto is average. I doubt I can buy Donnaruma this window. Perin seems to be like 20m. Do I buy Benatia out of his loan? it's 17m. His value is much better so maybe it's worth to do and resell later? Gonna kill my budget. I do have good CB depth and dont particularly care to play 3CB formations primarily. Another loanee is Cuadrado who is 9.7m to buy. Do I buy because it seems I lack quality players on the wings? he's also nonEU but cheap. Coman is off to Bayern as loan. I'd be surprised if Bayern don't buy him. I dont seem to have any other midfielders with great PA. Actually the u18 u20 teams are mostly average. Why does nonEU rule still matter if a player is mine for 2 years already? like Alex Sandro. I checked my youth squads and there are A LOT of loan players that might be too much for me to handle, Should I sell the <3 star ones? Any particular ones to keep? even as backups to fill homegrown rules. Seriously, wtf is this hording? 15 GK in u20 !!!!!!! Any particular easy to buy youngsters I should buy? especially italians. I'm not familiar with this year's players. my budget is like 24m euros with 77k/w left so what transfers should I make? This is little money unless I sell some big names.
