Juventus Officially Purchase Di Gregorio from Monza

Michele Di Gregorio is a new Juventus player. The club finalized his arrival without waiting for the departure of Wojciech Szczesny. Instead, Matteo Perin is expected to stay put. He’s their second summer acquisition after Douglas Luiz. Khepren Thuram will be in town in the coming days.

The goalie has penned a five-year contract starting from €2M wages, Calciomercato informs. He came in for the medicals on Friday morning. He leaves Monza after four remarkable campaigns.

Juventus will potentially pay €20M for Di Gregorio, but the formula is advantageous. They’ll shell out €4,5M right away, plus a €13,5M obligation to buy next year and €2M bonuses and 800k commissions. Inter will receive 10 percent, €2M, due to a previous resale clause as he’s their youth product. The Brianzoli acquired him for €4M in 2022.

The 26-year-old was named the best goalkeeper in Serie A in the past campaign. He kept 12 clean sheets, saved 2 PKs, and allowed 35 goals in 33 games last season.

The Bianconeri will part ways with Szczesny, as the veteran himself suggested. However, his transfer to Saudi Arabia has ground to a halt over the fee. Al-Nassr recently opened talks to sign Ederson from Liverpool. Monza have been tipped to pursue the Pole, who might prefer staying in Italy or Europe, but his wages are problematic.

Our Take on Juventus and Di Gregorio

Given the type of deal, the Old Lady saw it as a bargain and an opportunity that probably wouldn’t have been there in a year, which would have spared them some awkwardness. They are being relentless about players with salaries or demands they consider excessive this summer.
