A special deal, if it happens..
The Juventus administration has many doubts about the possibility of Cristiano Ronaldo staying next season, so it began searching for a successor in Turin.
And one of those names that were proposed to succeed the Portuguese Don is Barcelona star Antoine Griezmann, considering that he proved his effectiveness with the Juve method when he was a player in Atletico Madrid.
Ronaldos contract with Juventus expires in the summer of 2022, and there is talk of Agnelli’s desire to get rid of him due to his high salary of 30 million euros annually.
Will Griezmann move to Juventus?
Calciomercato.com, in a report, said that Juventus officials are considering the inclusion of Griezmann and are closely following his position in Barcelona in the recent period.
If the deal is completed, it will be done on loan for a period of one year, provided that there is a clause in the contract of eligibility to purchase, and that the loan is for a sum of money and is not free.
On the other hand, the site indicated that the priority currently within Juventus is to support the midfield, whether by including Miralem Pjanic, Manuel Locatelli or others, based on the desire of coach Massimiliano Allegri.
What could prevent Griezmann from moving to Juventus?
Juventus’ interest in signing Griezmann is not new, but the French international’s inclusion at Allianz Stadium appears to be highly elusive.
All reports about Griezmann confirm that the 30-year-old is not considering leaving Barcelona this summer, and that he is currently focusing all his attention on the France national team at Euro 2020.
At the same time, the Barca administration welcomed the sale of its French star to save expenses and reduce the wage bill, but the player’s own desire may decide his stay at the Camp Nou.
Will Ronaldo leave Juventus?
Ronaldo is still the biggest talk in the summer transfer market, and the latest reports say that he is already planning to leave Juventus after Allegri arrives to lead the old lady.
As for the next destination of the 36-year-old, it remains largely unknown, as the door to return to Real Madrid was clearly closed by President Florentino Perez, leaving him only two options, namely Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester United.
As for Paris, the news suggests that the Don will only arrive if Kylian Mbappe is sold this summer, and for United, there is a welcome from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer Ronaldo, but provided that he reduces his salary to suit the club’s current situation.
