1/5 The new season brings an overhaul to the squad, with Mario Balotelli set to return from injury.
The Italian international was already part of the Italy squad for the 2015 World Cup in Russia and is looking to put pen to paper on a new deal.
However, he has admitted that he is looking forward to being back in action this summer and his future in Italy remains uncertain.
“I’m really happy to be back playing again,” he told Corriere dello Sport.
“In this country you have to be ready for the future and this is why I’m back.
I want to give the team a chance.”
The Italian is currently sidelined by a knee injury that has forced him to miss the last two games of the season, but will be back at full fitness once he returns.
The 28-year-old has scored 19 goals in the past two seasons and has started in the Premier League and Champions League.
2/5 Antonio Conte has managed to turn around one of the worst-performing clubs in the country, with the Blues back in the top half of the table.
The club have not lost since the 2014-15 season, when they finished 11th in the table and were knocked out of the Champions League by the holders Real Madrid.
Conte’s side currently sit fifth in the league, with 13 points from 11 games.
Concretely, they are one point behind leaders Juventus, who have 13 points.
3/5 Former Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has scored 23 goals in 26 games for the Reds this season, which is the best total of his career.
The 30-year old has been instrumental in the Reds’ resurgence under new boss Roberto Martinez and will be looking to improve upon that total in his second season in charge.
“It’s been a tough season, especially with injuries,” Rooney told Sky Sports.
“But I know how to win a derby and to help the team.
I know that I can do that.
I don’t know if I can play 100 times, but I will do my best.”
4/5 Injuries to Diego Costa, Gareth Bale and Paul Pogba have left the Portuguese coach under pressure.
However the defender has been impressive in recent weeks, with three assists in three games and scoring the winner in a 1-1 draw with Real Madrid at the Bernabeu.
He is currently recovering from a groin injury sustained in January and has played every minute of the Europa League tie with Olympiacos.
5/5 Mario Balotelli has joined Juventus from AC Milan and is likely to start the new campaign as one of Juventus’ most promising young talents.
The 26-year adidas player has scored 11 goals in all competitions this season and has a total of 26 Serie A goals.
The Bianconeri are one of Italy’s top three sides in Serie A, but have not managed to secure Champions League football this season.
1/10 There is a new face in the Italian squad.
It’s hard to tell whether this will be Mario Balotti or Mauro Icardi.
Both players are on the fringes of Italian football, and in the case of Balotini, he will be making his debut for the first time.
However he is certainly in the side and is already showing glimpses of his talent.
The 25-year’s former side-striker has been a mainstay at Juventus for the last few years and has become a key player in the Juventus attack.
The centre-back has scored nine goals this season for the Biancones, and he was also instrumental in their 2-1 victory over Real Madrid in the Champions Cup last season.
2 /10 The Biancocelesti are without their star striker, with Marco Borriello set to leave the club.
The Argentine is a free agent and will now be out of contract at the end of the current campaign.
Borriella is currently a regular in the Serie A side and has scored five goals in 14 appearances this season with one assist.
3 /5 The Juventus side will be without two of their key players.
Mario Balotazzi is out for at least three weeks with a hamstring injury and Mauro Amor is suffering from a calf strain.
Despite this, the side are expected to be in the Europa Leagues and will look to strengthen their defence.
The 23-year was instrumental in Juventus’ 3-0 win over Bayern Munich in the first leg of the competition.
4/10 The Milan striker is likely the most exciting of the new arrivals.
The 33-year of Italian has scored 14 goals in 28 league games this season – the most goals ever scored by an Italian player.
The striker was one of Serie A’s top strikers before being loaned to AC Milan in 2013 and has since scored 23 league goals.
5 /5 Another new face will be Andrea Pirlo, who joined the Biancozones from Sampdoria in 2013.
The 27-year is currently playing
