Juventus have reportedly put up five players for sale as Andrea Pirlo gets ready to revamp his squad in the summer. The Italian would like to overhaul the Bianconeri's squad, and would need to get rid of a few players in order to do so.

According to the Daily Mail, Juventus are ready to part ways with Paulo Dybala, Aaron Ramsey, Alex Sandro, Adrien Rabiot and Rodrigo Bentancur in the summer in order to raise funds to sign new players.

The major decision to overhaul the squad was reportedly taken because of Juventus' capitulation this season. The Bianconeri are third in Serie A, ten points behind Inter Milan at the top of the table. The only silverware that Juventus look likely to win this season is the Coppa Italia.
