The arrival of Vlahovic removes the Swede from the possibility of playing continuously. Juve are studying the best formula, which sees the Swede away from Turin
“Don’t touch Dybala. And Kulusevski will prove that Chiesa is worth “, so said Rino Foschi to the Gazzetta, a few days ago. If the situation is currently on standby for the Argentine, in a negotiation on the renewal that is increasingly taking on the contours of a soap opera, around on the other hand, there is great excitement in the Swedish.
Kulusevski: to leave or not to leave?
In fact, if Juventus had already thought of him as a possible trading pawn, the arrival of Vlahovic further disrupts the cards, and for Dejan the chances of playing with a minimum of continuity decrease further. Milan had definitely considered him, with a view to replacing a defending Castillejo, but the suggestion never really took shape: Juve was aiming for 3 million for the loan and 40 for the redemption, figures considered excessive by the Rossoneri club. Moreover, Juve would prefer the foreign track, also in order not to strengthen their direct competitors. This is how the Tottenham hypothesis returns to overwhelmingly topicality, with Paratici who, having registered the player’s no to Everton, is returning to the attack, also to avoid being overtaken by Arsenal, which had shown signs of interest. Juve, which certainly does not want to burn a 35 million investment made two summers ago, seems to be oriented towards a loan with obligation to redeem.
The others who are as if suspended
However, Kulusevski is not the only player with… half a suitcase in hand. To stay in the orbit of the attack, the interest of various Serie A teams rises around Kaio Jorge, from Salernitana, to Cagliari, to Bologna, while for Morata a lot depends on Barcelona, who must convince Atletico Madrid and free him a placed in pink, making the operation economically feasible. In reality, Allegri’s “green light” is also missing, but the biggest knot must be solved in Spain. With Alvaro’s departure, Juve would save around 5 million in salary (including taxes) plus 4 of the 10 million due to Atletico Madrid for the loan, as established in the agreement two summers ago. Total: the Spaniard is moving towards staying with Juventus, even if the blaugrana president Laporta has moved, destined for Madrid.
Zooming in on the midfield, here is a trio at high risk of going out: it is Ramsey, Arthur and Bentancur. In reality, the only one out of the Allegri project is the Welshman, who also weighs 7 million in salary until 2023. Certainly starting around New Year’s Eve, he recovered from Covid and returned to Turin, still without a certain alternative destination because the proposals received so far by the Premier have not satisfied him. And at the moment there are no shocks even around the other two midfielders, with Arsenal perhaps now thinking more of Kulusevski than of Arthur …
