Juventus Maintain Some Level of Interest in Donnarumma

Wojciech Szczesny is potentially under contract with Juventus until 2025 considering an option, but his future will be a topic of conversation in the summer. The goalie recently recorded his 200th appearance at the club.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Pole will consider switching teams if the Bianconeri don’t play in the cups next season. The club is aware of the risk, even though there haven’t been concrete movements in such direction just yet. Tottenham could be a possible destination.

Juventus will turn to an Italian goalkeeper should they sell Szczesny. They are primarily eyeing younger and cheaper options like Empoli’s Guglielmo Vicario and Atalanta loanee Marco Carnesecchi. The former is considered the frontrunner should the switch happen in the next window and not in 2024. He’s considered mature enough to man the sticks for a big team. Other clubs are after him, but the fee wouldn’t be overly large, and his salary would be very affordable.

On the other hand, the Bianconeri remain big fans of Gianluigi Donnarumma, who’s having a seesawing season at PSG and might no longer be untouchable. He’s likely to return to Italy should he leave the French club. He’d be much more expensive, but he would hold down the role for a decade-plus. The new brass will be more cautious but won’t oppose long-term investments. A swap with Szczesny could be on the table too.

Our Take on Juventus, Szczesny, and Donnarumma

While the Pole may leave for financial reasons and a slight decline, the Italy starter is a pipe dream given the costs of the deal. It can’t be ruled out that the Bianconeri will just give Mattia Perin the job for a couple of seasons.
