Allegri Influence Likely to Impact Future of Two Juventus Fringe Players

For lack of buyers and depth purposes, Juventus decided to keep Mattia De Sciglio and Federico Bernardeschi on the roster in the summer. It was an unusual choice for the club since they are on expiring contracts. They have quickly proven to be valuable players thanks to the rotations and the trust of Massimiliano Allegri.

Their cases are not as dramatic and pressing as Frack Kessié, Lorenzo Insigne and Marcelo Brozovic, but they could get an extension too now. The fullback first joined Juventus on a precise indication by the coach, who had managed him at Milan. He fell out of favor with Maurizio Sarri and was loaned out to Olympique Lyonnais in the past campaign.

The defender currently earns €3M per year. He would be more than content to re-up if Juventus offered him around the same figure, Alfredo Pedullà reports. The fact that Allegri is poised for a long-term spell makes it a real possibility.

Bernardeschi has had a seesawing stint with the Bianconeri. He too benefitted from the return of the coach, who gave him a more consistent role. The winger has a €4M salary, and it is unlikely that the front office will offer him as much this time around. But he is way more likely to get a new deal than in the recent past. The management has yet to formally start the negotiation with his agent Mino Raiola. There is optimism they will come to terms quickly if they want to keep him, Tuttosport reports.
