Although the 26-year-old defender failed to make his debut for the Old Lady, the club made good money out of his sale, with the player currently occupying the eighth spot on the list.

Caldara is currently on loan at Atalanta, his third spell at the club, having started his career with La Deas.

#7 Filippo Inzaghi – €36.15m to AC Milan in 2001

In at number seven is Italian legend Flippo Inzhagi, who conquered Europe during his playing days with his exploits in front of goal.

Inzaghi moved to AC Milan in the summer of 2001 after plying his trade in Turin for four seasons, appearing in more than 160 matches and winning multiple accolades in the process.

But Inzaghi’s best years came in the famous red and black stripes of AC Milan as he tore apart defences for fun, guiding the Rossoneri to two Serie A titles and two UEFA Champions League crowns among other honours.

#6 Arturo Vidal – €39.25m to Bayern Munich in 2015

The current Barcelona midfield warrior, Arturo Vidal made a name for himself while playing for the Old Lady during the start of the previous decade. Vidal joined Juve from Bundesliga outfit Bayer Leverkusen for €10.5 million in 2011 and slowly cemented his place in the club’s starting XI.

The Chilean international made 171 appearances across all competitions during his four-year spell at Juventus, helping the club achieve newer heights with his combusting style of play.

The midfielder was a crucial part of one of the most successful Juventus teams ever, before being shifted out to Bayern Munich in 2015 for €39.25 million.

#5 Leonardo Bonucci – €42m to AC Milan in 2017

Italy international Leonardo Bonucchi moved to AC Milan in 2017 for €42 million after serving seven long years for the Old Lady.

However, after spending a single season at Milan, Bonucci returned to Juventus for his second spell at the Turin-based club in a swap deal involving Mattia Caldara in 2018.

The 33-year-old defender has been one of the main reasons behind Juve’s domestic dominance in the last decade or so.

#4 Miralem Pjanic – €60m+5m in variables to Barcelona in 2020

Bosnian midfielder Miralem Pjanic is all set to join Barcelona after the season concludes in a swap deal involving Brazilan international Arthur Melo.

Known for his speed, offensive attributes, and dribbling skills, Cancelo belongs to the next generations of full-backs, who can contribute to both sides of the field.

Cancelo made 34 appearances during his single-year-stay at Juventus and became the world’s most expensive right-back after making his move to the Etihad from Juventus.

#2 Zinedine Zidane – €77.5m to Real Madrid in 2001

Widely regarded as one of the best in history, Zinedine Zidane moved to Real Madrid in 2001 for €77.5 million after dishing out several stand-out performances for both Juventus and France.

Zidane was named the Serie A Foreign Footballer of the Year in his first-ever season with Juventus, after winning the 1996-97 Serie A title and the 1996 Intercontinental Cup in his debut campaign in Italy.

The French legend turned out on 212 matches for the Old Lady across all competitions, scoring 31 goals in the process. The present Real Madrid boss was also the recipient of the 1998 Ballon d’Or after guiding France to their first World Cup triumph.

#1 Paul Pogba – €105m to Manchester United in 2016

French international Paul Pogba occupies the top spot in the list of most expensive departures in Juventus’ history.
