Juventus Hopeful for Breakthrough in Key Extension Talks

Dusan Vlahovic had a colorful celebration after scoring against Inter on Sunday, bagging his first goal in two months after losing minutes primarily because of a back problem. The striker showed his jersey number and silenced the critics following his successful strike.

Coach Massimiliano Allegri praised him after the game to Sky.

“Vlahovic had the best performance since joining Juventus.”

Per Calciomercato, his strong display will rearrange the pecking order after Moise Kean started a few matches lately. The brass of the Old Lady is playing an equally important game off the pitch, as they are trying to agree to a new contract with his new camp.

They want to do it soon, or they’ll inevitably resume considering the offers since his salary is a relic of a different and much more lavish era. It’s too high especially if he doesn’t produce.

Some teams have started inquiring about the Serb in January, especially Atletico Madrid. His valuation remains very high, and deals of that magnitude are rare in the winter. The status quo won’t last past next summer.

Our Take on Vlahovic

His physical problems were probably more severe than the team let on beforehand; otherwise, he would have gotten more minutes since there’s a gulf between him and their other center-forwards.

His salary is a real problem, but getting a player on the rise to agree to a pay cut is an almost impossible proposition, especially since he could easily maintain it elsewhere.
