Juventus Having Some Trouble with Two Contract Renewals

Juventus are trying to come to terms with two of their own, Federico Chiesa and Wojciech Szczesny, before diving head-first into the transfer market. They might have to settle for a short-term solution for the latter.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Fali Ramadani, the agent of the winger, paid them a visit recently. The parties might shake hands on a seasonal extension to push the expiration date to 2026. It’d prevent the risk of a Bosman departure in a year, giving the club more tranquillity and the freedom to evaluate the offers that could come from England.

Chiesa and Szczesny are more likely than not to stay at Juventus even if the officials don’t get their wishes on personal terms. Per Corriere dello Sport (via Blasting News), the hierarchy would like for the shot-stopper to dilute his wages through a one-year renewal. However, he’s not keen on doing so.

The Pole is ready to play out the final campaign of his contract and assess his future next summer. FIFA might grant a waiver to players in this situation, allowing them to feature in the FIFA Club World Cup. Their deals will technically expire during the competition, as it will end after the usual June 30th deadline.

Our Take on Juventus, Chiesa, and Szczesny

The sale of the latter wouldn’t fetch much at this stage, so, while not ideal, they can take it to the end of his contract. Instead, it’s paramount to find a solution for the attacker.
