Kenan Yildiz scored his maiden international goal in his first start with Turkey, celebrating with his tongue sticking out as Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero did in recent years, mimicking Micheal Jordan. He did it versus Germany, which had tried to convince him to pick them while he was at Bayern Munich.
The youngster would like to play more, which might force the Bianconeri to revise the plan they had in mind for him, Calciomercato informs. He has logged 36 minutes so far. The Old Lady plotted to keep him until the end of the season, occasionally fielding him with the Next Gen squad. He has logged one goal and one assist in five Serie C games so far.
On the other hand, Yildiz could benefit from leaving Juventus on loan to gain experience and exposure. Making the squad list for Euro 2024 has quickly become a real objective for him, even more so with Vincenzo Montella coaching Turkey.
In addition, Galatasaray and Fenerbahce would be willing to spend a sizeable sum if he was ever made available, but that isn’t in the cards anytime soon. The Bianconeri got him to sign an extension till 2027 in recent months.
Our Take on Yildiz and Juventus
While he could perhaps deserve it, it’s hard to imagine he’ll find much playing time with their current scheme and Federico Chiesa, Dusan Vlahovic, Moise Kean, and Arkadiusz Milik ahead of him. A loan spell to a minnow makes all the sense in the world.
