Weston McKennie bids farewell to Juventus. Transfer agreed
Juventus forward Weston McKennie has one foot at Leeds United, according to Gianluca Di Marzio and Fabrizio Romano.
Gianluca Di Marzio writes about an agreement between Leeds United and Juventus over the transfer of Weston McKennie. His impending departure was also confirmed by the latter’s coach, Massimiliano Allegri, who announced that the player would not play against Monza on Sunday.
There is a loan option for €1.5 million with an option to buy for €35 million. The option could turn into an obligation to buy if certain conditions are met, although the English club’s approach is that at the end of the season it would prefer to decide on a permanent transfer on its own.
Fabrizio Romano also claims that the matter is settled, and the 24-year-old footballer has already agreed on individual terms with Leeds.
A little earlier, David Ornstein in TheAthletic.com suggested that Nottingham Forest was thinking about intercepting McKennie’s transfer, but everything seems to indicate that nothing will come of it.
The American midfielder has been a Juventus player since 2020. Initially, he was loaned to Turin, and over time he was bought from Schalke 04. Participant of the recent World Cup, where he reached the 1/8 finals with his national team, so far played 96 matches in the shirt of the Italian team. His record for the current Serie A season is 15 appearances, a goal and an assist.
