After wrapping up the negotiations with four players in recent months, Juventus have moved on to the discussions with Wojciech Szczesny and Moise Kean. Their brass wants to add them to the list of renewals that already comprises Federico Gatti, Manuel Locatelli, Nicolò Fagioli, and Gleison Bremer, TuttoSport informs.
Both players are tied to them until 2025. The goalie makes €6.5M. The club would like to cut it down to a more manageable €4.5/5M clip, tacking on an extra year. It’ll probably take a couple of months, but there’s momentum for it to happen.
Despite some chatter, Szczesny and Kean are destined to stay at Juventus at least until the end of their current contract, and likely longer. The former repelled Al Hilal and Al Nassr’s advances last summer even though he could have doubled his wages. His family is very comfortable in Turin. His desire to arrive at the 2026 World Cup in a good situation is a factor.
The new deal of the striker could be longer and last until 2027 or 2028. It’ll allow the club to amortize his cost since they paid €38M to bring him back from Everton.
Our Take on Juventus, Szczesny, and Kean
His strong performances and potential replacements not living up to expectations so far have quelled any concern about the Pole. The only reservations about him are financial. These two extensions would be more meaningful than the recent ones, but the main courses are Dusan Vlahovic, Federico Chiesa, and Adrien Rabiot.
