USMNT Star Next in Line to Get Extension from Juventus

Weston McKennie turned his Juventus fortunes around in the summer. He opened the pre-season preparation among the outcasts but was added to the regular squad due to some injuries and the club’s tardiness on the transfer market. He wound up being a regular starter thanks to his versatility.

Per TuttoSport, the Bianconeri are considering rewarding him with a new contract. His present one expires in 2025. The Old Lady is on a renewal spree. His one could be next but isn’t necessarily imminent.

The agents of McKennie will be in Europe during the next international break and will meet up with the Juventus brass to start bargaining. The USMNT staple makes €2.5M per year.

The midfielder has been one of the most utilized players so far this season, starring either as a wing-back or as a box-to-box due to Timothy Weah’s slow introduction and Nicolò Fagioli and Paul Pogba’s suspensions. The Bianconeri fully planned to move on from him last January when they shipped him off to Leeds United. However, the Whites’s relegation precluded them from activating their €30M option to buy.

Our Take on McKennie and Juventus

Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good, as the reason for his departure was merely economical and not technical. He’s a very useful player, has some more room to grow, and his salary is perfectly fine.
