The Bianconeri will see two of their first-team stars return to action on Sunday.

Paul Pogba and Dusan Vlahovic have regained full fitness ahead of Juventus’ upcoming match against Monza.

Pogba is yet to make his second debut for Juve after his summer move from Manchester United. A knee injury during Juve’s pre-season and subsequent surgery has kept Pogba out of action so far this season.

But Massimiliano Allegri says both he and Vlahovic are fit to play for the Bianconeri.

“They’re fine. They did good [in] training, a good test the other day,” the Juventus manager said.

“Vlahovic’s condition is better than Pogba’s, also just as a physical structure, but Paul in recent days has come ahead.

“If a player is called up, he can play. Of course, they don’t have 60 minutes in their legs, they’ll have 30 at most.”

Weston McKennie is reported to have reached an agreement to with Leeds United in recent days. The USMNT star won’t be available for selection in Juve’s upcoming match.

“There is an agreement between the clubs, then I don’t know if it will go through,” Allegri said.

“He’s a player on the market, so it doesn’t seem right and normal to bring him [for this game].”
