The month of June is coming to an end in a matter of days.

So, what does that mean? The construction of Juventus’ roster for next season will only continue to happen, continue to see transfer rumors come from every direction and with a bit of skepticism no matter what and continue to remind us of just what kind of financial hardships the club is currently under.

But there is still being business done. And as of yet, there’s more incoming than outgoing — which, in a way, is both good and bad depending on what player we’re talking about.

On this week’s episode of The Old Lady Speaks Podcast, we discuss:

  • Max Allegri appears set to turn down even MORE money from the Saudis. Like, A LOT of money from the Saudis. The kind of €30 million a season kind of money.
  • Actual transfer happenings: Juventus are closing in on a deal for Lille and USMNT wide man Timothy Weah, who will arrive in Turin for a price of around €12 million.
  • More transfer happenings: Juventus could see one of their best players from the 2022-23 season, midfielder Adrien Rabiot, stay around a little while longer. It was reported that they are to have the best contract offer on the table — a one-year deal worth €7 million net — after it was widely expected the Frenchman was going to leave on a free transfer this season.
  • A tangent of sorts: This whole Saudi thing is nuts, right?
  • (Yeah, it’s pretty nuts no matter who they end up signing.)
  • Arek Milik is now officially a Juventus player after he was signed outright from Marseille.
  • Twitter questions — including a couple about Juventus’ potential midfield and howe we got into rooting for this club in the first place.
