Juventus are set to finalize and announce two contract renewals in short order. They have reached an agreement with Nicolò Fagioli and Manuel Locatelli. Both midfielders will sign five-year deals, extending their stay until 2028, Goal’s Romeo Agresti informs.
Locatelli currently makes €3M and will likely enjoy the same raise as Fagioli, SportMediaset informs. The Azzurri staple often voiced his affinity to the team. He turned down the chance to transfer abroad last summer.
The Bianconeri recently touched up the contract of Federico Gatti. They plot to do the same with Daniele Rugani and Wojciech Szczesny. Instead, the discussions with Dusan Vlahovic and Federico Chiesa will likely take more time given the sums involved and their complexity, Agresti adds. The agent of Adrien Rabiot publicly postponed the negotiation, even though the expiration date is 2024.
After Locatelli and Fagioli, the next one to put pen to paper on a new Juventus contract should be Gleison Bremer. He joined the club two summers ago. While almost no player will get their wages reduced, the renewals will still help the team’s finances. The yearly costs on the balance sheets will get lower thanks to more long-term amortizations.
