Juventus seal McKennie’s permanent move with €18.5m

Wed 03 March 2021 | 14:34

The USMNT star has agreed to join the Serie A side for a permanent deal after enjoying a loan-spell at Allianz Stadium.

The

USMNT

midfielder and

Schalke

loanee,

Weston McKennie

, has agreed to join

Juventus

for an initial fee of €18.5 million after enjoying a loan-spell with the Old Lady in which he made 31 appearances.

McKennie’s current contract will extend till 2025 with €6.5m to be paid to the 22-year-old in case any changes were made regarding his contract duration.

The Bianconeri’s first interest in McKennie came in 2020 after they paid €4.5m to loan him from Schalke.

Though adding McKennie to Andrea Pirlo’s squad may have been a surprising move from the Italian side, it still benefited the team considering that they had already parted with some of their midfielders around that time.

In all of his Serie A appearances this season, McKennie has been able to score four goals while adding another in their 3-0 Champions League win against

Barcelona

.

The Old Lady hope this move will not only benefit McKennie, but also it would help them in selling the player for up to €50m in the future.
