Juventus Unveil Timothy Weah As First Summer Signing

Record-time Serie A champions Juventus officially unveiled Timothy Weah as the club’s new signing on Saturday. As announced on the club’s website, the 23-year-old has joined the Bianconeri on a five-year deal following a four-year stint at Lille. 

Juventus agreed to pay Les Dogues €10.3 million in two installments plus add-ons for Weah’s freedom. The player has signed a five-year contract and should be a long-term replacement for Juan Cuadrado. Indeed, the long-serving Bianconeri stalwart has already bid an emotional farewell to the Turin faithful. 

Weah penned his multi-year contract at Juventus on the same day Inter officially presented Marcus Thuram as their new player. Both players will make their Serie A debuts next season after becoming the latest sons to follow in the footsteps of their reputed fathers

The Paris Saint-Germain academy graduate enjoyed a trophy-laden career in France. After winning back-to-back titles with PSG as a teenager in 2017/18 and 2018/19, he helped Lille dethrone Les Parisiens in 2020/21. Between his two arrangements in Ligue 1, he lifted the Scottish Premiership crown with Celtic.

Given Juventus’ recent struggle in Serie A, Weah’s title-winning mentality could be a welcoming addition. He has taken No22 that was up for grabs following Angel Di Maria’s exit on a free transfer. But after being in and out of Lille’s starting line-up last season, the USMNT utility man has a point to prove at Juventus.  

Seen as a long-term replacement for Cuadrado, who won 11 titles with the Bianconeri, he faces a massive task.
