The novelty at Juve is called Weston McKennie. A good bet that will bring the American Schalke 04 to the court of Andrea Pirlo, agreement with the player already reached, the agreement between the clubs is less than a step away. A surprise blow, but it is no coincidence that the decisive acceleration has arrived in the last few hours. Under the radar and away from any market rumors, the negotiations had already started for some time and McKennie’s profile under examination. But the turning point came only on Tuesday evening, in a completely different context, namely when Paratici met again with the Sassuolo management to talk about Manuel Locatelli. DOESN’T MOVE – The former Milan midfielder who was able to relaunch and consecrate himself in neroverde, in fact, had managed to climb the preferences of Juve as regards the median. Except then go to clash with Sassuolo’s plan to keep Locatelli at least another season, unless there are some essential offers. That Juve at the moment is unable to plan. Yet Paratici has tried again and again. Trying to push for a loan with obligation to redeem at figures that are all in all important and similar to those that will bring McKennie to Juventus (more than 20 million in total): outright refusal. Sassuolo’s no was also reiterated when various counterparts were put on the plate, including that of Hans Nicolussi Caviglia which could also end up in Emilia in a parallel and distinct way. Thus, the firmness of Giovanni Carnevali and Giovanni Rossi, both present at the summit with Paratici, finally convinced the Juventus club to turn the page, accelerating on the McKennie front. Further raises are not excluded, even just to secure a privileged position for next season, especially if the outgoing market were to unlock. Meanwhile, the difficulties on the Locatelli front pushed Juve to tighten for McKennie. And the market has yet to start.
