Serie A

Juventus has the US midfielder Weston McKennie from Schalke into a permanent move of £ 16 million

The Italian giants have exercised their right to sign the 22-year-old by 2025.


McKenney, who made 21 appearances for the United States, was loaned to Juventus last summer, three years after making a professional debut for Schalke's first team.

The midfielder has made a great start to life under the leadership of manager Andrea Pirlo, with five goals and two assists in 31 appearances.


He made an acrobatic effort in the 3–0 demolition of Barcelona's Juventus in the group stages of the Champions League, with Juan Cuadrado crossing with a flying volley.


McKenney achieved his first goal for the Italian champions against his city rivals Torino and also won important victories against Milan, Bologna and Croton.


His goal against Croton last month made him the highest-scoring American in Serie A history, overtaking Michael Bradley's modest three.

McKennie's buyout option was activated by La Veccia Signera, making the loan amount for the US midfielder permanent for € 18.5 million. And now Bianconeri has similar plans for both Federico Chiassa and Alvaro Morata.


Both players are on loan with options to expand further - although Chiasa's second year will end on a permanent offer basis, as the conditions are being met - but the club needs to ponder whether Moreta invests further. Is worth.

It's also important to note that he's also the youngest midfielder in this league to score four or more, as well as the best American goalscorer in Serie A history. He has actively participated in six of the goals (four goals and two assists) that Juventus have always won.


For this reason he has been an outspoken Juventus player since today, and the club made Schleck 04's move permanent.
