Juventus Face Race Against Clock for Valladolid Prodigy

Juventus set sights on Ivan Fresneda a few weeks ago, and the timing will be crucial for their chase to be successful. The youngster has turned heads this season and is in the crosshairs of several clubs.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Newcastle, Arsenal, and Borussia Dortmund are rivaling the Bianconeri to capture the youngster. Real Valladolid want the suitors to activate his €30M release clause to get him in January, TuttoSport informs. The sum will grow in the summer.

Juventus inquired about further options on top of Fresneda to fill the opening, such as Joakim Maehle, Emil Holm, and Rick Karsdorp. Atalanta demand a robust sum and guarantees the fullback would be bought out. Instead, they could take a flier on the other two, signing them on loan. But it could happen only late in the window.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Massimiliano Allegri favors Diogo Dalot over the alternatives. However, Manchester United just activated their option to extend his contract until 2024. Their only chance to slim chance to get him is tied to the fact that there could be a fall-out of Cristiano Ronaldo’s abrupt departure since they have the same agent.

The need at the position is exacerbated by Juan Cuadrado being currently unavailable. He has been dealing with lingering knee soreness. He’s a question mark for the Cremonese game, Sky Italy informs.

Our Take on Juventus and Fresneda

They’ll have to make a splash at the position in one of the next two windows. It’d be odd if they used most of their budget for him, but crazier things have happened. It’s strange that Alvaro Odriozola has completely fallen off the radar. He’d be a sound option that wouldn’t break the bank.
