Juventus didn’t redeem Arkadiusz Milik before the June 10th deadline, but his future is highly likely to still be in Turin. The Bianconeri are in advanced talks to make his transfer permanent, if not immediately through the formula of a loan with an obligation to buy triggered by easy conditions.
According to Goal, the two teams are discussing the details. The Old Lady offered €1M right away and €5.5M in a year. The final numbers could vary a little, but there’s momentum toward the competition of the deal.
Per Gianluca Di Marzio, Juventus will acquire Milik directly for €7M. He scored 9 goals in 41 appearances in 2022/2023. The Pole, who’s drawing interest from other Serie A sides, voiced his preference for the Bianconeri speaking from his national team’s setup in recent days (via Calciomercato).
“The two clubs are in talks. I hope they come to an agreement, as I would be happy to stay in Turin. I’m comfortable there, and Massimiliano Allegri wants me.”
Our Take on Juventus and Milik
The formula and figures might change, but the outcome seems clear. The Old Lady will soon have to address the Dusan Vlahovic’s Gordian knot, and it would have been detrimental to have further uncertainty. The ex-Napoli striker was excellent in the first half of the season and then poor following a major thigh strain. The team would probably settle for something in the middle.
Reports suggest Alvaro Morata has a low release clause in his new contract with Atletico Madrid, so they might not look far should they need another center-forward.
