Max Allegri is reportedly ready to reshuffle Juventus after Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, making Federico Chiesa a striker in the 4-4-2 formation or adopt a 3-5-2.
The Bianconeri inevitably have to change following the exit of their top scorer, as CR7 contributed 36 goals in 44 competitive games last season, 29 of them in 33 Serie A appearances.
It is difficult for Allegri to perform too many tactical experiments during the break for international duty, as he has very few first choice players in training right now.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, the coach is tempted to move Juve to a 4-4-2 formation, but not with Alvaro Morata as one of the strikers.
Instead, the plan would be a more rapid, free-moving pair upfront of Dybala and Chiesa.
Morata can then be considered an alternative to break down more defensive teams and bypass the midfield with a long Leonardo Bonucci ball over the top.
There is another option, as outlined by La Gazzetta dello Sport, which is to bring back the three-man defence with Matthijs de Ligt, Giorgio Chiellini and Bonucci.
That can allow Chiesa to play in his usual role on the flank and cutting inside to shoot, with Dejan Kulusevski or Juan Cuadrado on the other side.
