Juventus recently made another attempt to prolong the contract of Dusan Vlahovic, but their efforts were in vain. His agent Darko Ristic was on the San Siro stands for the recent clash with Inter. The parties touched base afterward, but there were no notable advancements, TuttoSport relays.
The Bianconeri want to re-do the deal not for its length but for economic reasons. The wages of the Serb are set to increase to €12M in the coming seasons. It’s an unsustainable sum for their balance sheets.
Juventus proposed to the Vlahovic camp to dilute his salary by tacking on a few more years. The ideal annual figure for the team would be a more manageable €8M. The request was rebuffed.
Instead, the striker might accept if the Bianconeri proposed €10M per year until 2028. The club hasn’t gotten there so far. They’ll have to make the call one way or the other relatively soon. There would be no shortage of suitors in the Premier League if he became available.
Our Take on Juventus and Vlahovic
Just as the concerns about his performances and numbers abated, the financial ones resurfaced. His mammoth contract is a cumbersome relic of a previous era. If the Old Lady gives in on this front, they might have to pick and choose as far as other players are concerned. The positive development for them is that, thanks to his return to form, they’d get full price if they put him on the market.
