Monza Temper Chatter About Juventus Signing Di Gregorio

Juventus are reportedly very keen on Michele Di Gregorio to succeed Wojciech Szczesny, but Monza are in the driver’s seat to decide his future. CEO Adriano Galliani pointed out that the goalie is tied to them long-term. That wasn’t the case for their last major sale, Carlos Augusto.

The exec spoke with Sky.

“He has three years on his contract. I haven’t talked with any side about him.”

Instead, agent Carlo Alberto Belloni fueled the buzz to TVPlay.

“There have been conversations with other clubs about my client Di Gregorio, but Juventus have Szczesny, who makes €6.5M. It’ll be difficult for them to go in a different direction. I’d like for him to stay in Italy and not go abroad, even though the Premier League is always alluring. He’s attached to Inter since he grew up there, but he’s not a fan. There are no ties if not for a small re-sale clause. They don’t have the economic strength to lodge an important bid. He’s surely ready for a top team.”

According to Calciomercato, Juventus would tender makeweights to bring in Di Gregorio. Monza tracked a few of their players in previous windows: Samuel Iling-Junior, Moise Kean, Hans Nicolussi Caviglia, and Fabio Miretti.

Instead, the negotiation with Szczesny, whose deal is up in 2025, hasn’t gone far.
