Szczesny Open to Beau Gest Toward Juventus on Contract

Juventus will attempt to reduce their payroll by lowering the wages of some of their veterans, and they could find fertile ground with Wojciech Szczesny. He’s currently under contract until 2025 and makes €7M annually.

According to TuttoSport (via Fichajes), the goalkeeper is very comfortable in Turin and isn’t enticed by the prospect of transferring. He had the opportunity to do so in the recent window. A few Saudi clubs and Bayern Munich inquired about him. However, he quickly dismissed the chatter and reiterated his commitment to the Old Lady.

Juventus and the Sczesny camp are in talks to prolong his deal until 2026, adding one year, and reducing his wages down to €5M. He’d like to stay put until the next World Cup.

The Bianconeri are tending to several renewals. Federico Gatti’s one is considered the closest to coming to fruition. The brass will look to offset the natural pay bumps of the youngsters by shaving the salaries of their veterans. Daniele Rugani is likely to receive the same treatment as the Polish goalkeeper.

The former Roma and Arsenal shot-stopper has been in Turin since 2017 and has accumulated 2018 appearances.

Our Take on Juventus and Szczesny

There was some chatter about substituting him in recent years, but that hasn’t been the case since Cristiano Giuntoli took over, and this could easily be one of the reasons why.
