De Sciglio Next in Line to Get Extension from Juventus

After Mattia Perin, Mattia De Sciglio will be the next Juventus player to get an extension from Juventus. His current contract with the team expires in June. The parties are putting the finishing touches on a deal that will run through 2025, reports.

The fullback stayed in Turin last summer after a season on loan to Olympique Lyonnais, thanks to the return of Massimiliano Allegri. He has featured regularly on either defensive flank, tallying 27 total appearances. He originally joined the Bianconeri in a €12M move from Milan in 2017. The 29-year-old has played in 89 matches with the Old Lady, scoring once and providing 4 assists.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the parties met in Nyon last week to iron out the details. De Sciglio will see his wages decrease from €3M to €1.8-2M following the extension, but he will get a multi-year contract. The coach was a major proponent of him re-upping.

Juventus have sorted the future of almost their players on expiring contracts. Federico Bernardeschi is the only one still in limbo. According to the Italian outlet, the winger would not mind staying, but the club has not tendered a real offer at this stage. He cut ties with Mino Raiola, who was negotiating a lower annual rate with the management at the beginning of the season.

It remains to be seen whether it will happen. The officials elected not to make a formal proposal to Paulo Dybala in a similar situation. Considering his salary, the Italian attacker has better chances to wind up at Milan or Inter than in other Serie A sides. However, he would not mind transferring abroad if he had to leave. In particular, he has set his sight on the Premier League and the London clubs.
