Juventus has begun working on several fronts to sign a new striker during the current summer transfer window, if the departure of Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo is confirmed. And press reports recently linked Ronaldo to a move to Paris Saint-Germain, even though his contract with Juve expires in the summer of 2022.
And the Italian newspaper, “La Gazzetta dello Sport”, said that Cristiano’s signals to leave are pushing the club to work on more than one front, as Federico Cherubini, the new head of technical management at Juve, moves to secure the team with an alternative player for Don.
The newspaper added that the renewal of the loan of Spanish striker Alvaro Morata from Atletico Madrid is certain, whether Ronaldo remains or leaves. And if the Portuguese star chooses to go to Paris, the inclusion of French striker Mauro Icardi will be a natural thing, especially since Juventus has been watching him for several years.
The Bianconeri also identified Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus, as one of the possible targets, especially since the Brazilian is not living his best periods under the leadership of Spanish coach Pep Guardiola. The newspaper concluded that the Serbian Dusan Vlahovic, the young Fiorentina striker, who presented excellent levels last season, also falls within the interests of Juventus.
In another context, Polish goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny, Juventus goalkeeper, confirmed that he will remain in the ranks of the Bianconeri for next season, in light of the news that linked him to leaving the “old lady” this summer.
Szczesny was linked with leaving Juventus to make way for Juventus to sign Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma. Donnarumma’s 22-year-old contract with Milan expires this month, and the two parties have yet to reach an agreement on a renewal. Chesney said in a press statement, “My future? I will try to answer this question once and for all, this topic has been in the media for a long time.”
“There is no reason for me to think of leaving, I have not contacted the officials,” he added. He continued, “There is no controversy about my departure, I am not responsible for the transfers of Juventus.” It is noteworthy that Gianluigi Donnarumma has been linked with a move to Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona.
