Szczesny Expresses Complete Commitment to Juventus

Wojciech Szczesny had a year automatically added to his Juventus contract in recent weeks, and he plans to see it out. The Bianconeri have been mildly linked to younger shot-stoppers in recent months, but a switch between the sticks doesn’t seem to be among their priorities.

The Pole spoke from his national team’s set-up before a Euro qualifier (via TuttoSport).

“Juventus’ situation off the pitch has absolutely no influence over my decisions. I have a contract until 2025, and I don’t see myself in another jersey until then.”

According to Calciomercato, despite his extension and words, Szczesny is potentially expendable for salary and age-related reasons. He’s one of the highest-paid players on the squad due to his €6.5M annual wages. On the other hand, there have been no tangible offers thus far.

The Bianconeri have identified Guglielmo Vicario and Marco Carnesecchi as potential heirs. Inter, if André Onana departs, and Fiorentina are after the former too, Corriere dello Sport informs (via SOSFanta). Instead, Atalanta could ultimately keep the prodigy and have him compete with Juan Musso for the starting job, Tuttomercatoweb relays.

Our Take on Juventus and Szczesny

The Pole could be an interesting opportunity for top teams searching for a reliable goalie, as his price tag wouldn’t be excessive. There are a few out there, but he’s not top of the list since he’s 33. On the other hand, the Bianconeri have so many balls in the air and a meager budget, so they probably wouldn’t mind to keep relying on one of their few high-level certainties.
