New Juventus boss Andrea Pirlo will try and offload six players this summer, including Aaron Ramsey, claims a report.

Pirlo was appointed new Juve boss on Saturday after succeeding the sacked Maurizio Sarri. The former Chelsea boss lasted just 12 months in Turin, with Pirlo stepping up from his U23 role just a week after he was appointed.

And, according to the Daily Mirror he is already planning to clear the decks.

Former Arsenal star Ramsey is one of the players not wanted by Pirlo and he is free to find another club.

The attacking midfielder made just 11 Serie A starts last term and he does not fit into Pirlo’s ball-playing style.

The 29-year-old only joined Juve last summer after leaving Arsenal on a free transfer, but he could be heading home already

His wages of £400,000-a-week could well limit his options, and he will have to take a pay cut if he moves on.

United interest?

The former Italy international also wants to offload Gonzalo Higuain, Sami Khedira, Daniele Rugani and Mattia De Sciglio, while Blaise Matuidi is heading for MLS.

Matuidi has had a medical with David Beckham’s Inter Miami and looks set to sign a three-year deal.

The Daily Telegraph last month claimed Juventus were reportedly hoping to broker a swap deal involving Ramsey and Tanguy Ndombele.

Jose Mourinho though wants to keep the £53.8million man, claiming that he will come good.

Ramsey, meanwhile has been linked with Manchester United.

The Daily Mail claimed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was interested in the Wales star earlier in the summer.
