Juventus Gem Soulé Turns Down Rich Bid from Al-Ittihad

Al-Ittihad are ready to cover Matias Soulé and Juventus with gold, but the youngster has declined the offer, at least for now. He wants to finish the season with Frosinone. The Saudi side have Argentinian icon Marcelo Gallardo on their bench.

According to Sky, the proposal for the Bianconeri amounts to €30M, plus wealthy wages for the player. The winger rejected it, even though it was very tempting.

Al-Ittihad will likely keep trying to persuade Soulé and Juventus till the end of the window. He has carried Frosinone so far, bagging 9 goals in 19 appearances. Their directors have often repeated that he would stay put despite the interest coming also from other championships, primarily the Premier League.

In other Bianconeri-related news, the deal with Atletico Madrid involving Moise Kean has slowed down. The medicals had already been booked for next Monday. The Colchoneros are no longer certain Angel Correa will depart. They might wait to see how that situation unfolds first.

Our Take on Al-Ittihad, Juventus, and Soulé

The implication of the report is that the Old Lady would have gladly taken the offer since it’s specified that it was the starlet who refused. While financially understandable, as they are severely cash-strapped, they shouldn’t part ways with him until Federico Chiesa commits to staying for a few years through an extension. That should be clearer in the summer. At that point, they might indeed pull the trigger and lean heavily on Kenan Yildiz.
