Juventus is forced to activate on the transfer window. After having recruited Paul Pogba free from Manchester United, the Turinese must today already compensate for the replacement of the latter. In addition to the Frenchman injured in the knee during the American tour, the Old Lady also lost Weston McKennie also to injury. Two players who will be out for the start of the season and the leaders are looking for another profile to compensate for these injuries. Juve have taken the decision to reactivate the Sergej Milinkovic-Savic track.
Back at the club, six seasons after his last stint in the bianconero jersey, French international midfielder Paul Pogba fell during the last preparation tour in the United States. Hit in the meniscus, the tricolor is out for the next two months at least and his absence could even be longer than expected. Back in Turin last week, he passed exams and the club would like his new recruit to go through the surgery box in order to treat this injury in the best possible way. An operation that could force the Frenchman to practically put an end to his 2022 year and thus say goodbye to his World Cup chances with the French team, all with the aim of returning to 100% in 2023. A difficult decision to take for the former Manchester United player but who will be crucial for the rest of his season as well as that of his club.
If we are to believe the information from the ‘Gazetta dello Sport’ as well as agent Massimo Brambati, Juventus is now looking for a replacement to make up for the absence of Paul Pogba. If this solution could be called Adrien Rabiot or even Arthur Melo, the leaders would rather consider separating from them and bringing in a new recruit of choice. Indeed, Juventus would like to bet on Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to replace Paul Pogba. “Maybe the time has come for Milinkovic to leave Lazio, otherwise it’s next season. Allegri had given clear indications. One was Pogba and the other was Milinkovic. I thought one ruled out the other, so I don’t know if Pogba’s injury didn’t turn the cards down but yes Juventus are interested in SMS.” Did he reveal in “Sky Sports”.
Lazio Roma demand a lot of money
Star of Lazio Rome in the middle of the field for several seasons, the Serbian player is under contract with the Biancocelesti until June June 2024 and he has never hidden his desire to look elsewhere in order to pass a milestone in his career. . With the injuries of Paul Pogba and more recently Weston McKennie in midfield, Juventus must find new reinforcements and the arrival of the 27-year-old Serb would be welcome. As confirmed by the ‘Corriere dello Sport’, Juventus have already made contact with the player’s agent, a certain Mateja Kezman and the operation promises to be very complex. Apart from the will of the player who would not be against discovering the Champions League, it is the president of Lazio Claudio Lotito who seems to close to a departure from his star.
Since the start of the transfer window, the Lazialés have demanded at least 60 million euros to accept the transfer of number 21 from Lazio. A request which seems far from the Turin plans which do not intend to offer such an amount in the immediate future. Despite everything, discussions are continuing and Juventus do not intend to let go so easily in this matter. Remember that Juventus is also looking for another player in the midfield, the Parisian Leandro Paredes and that the latter is today the absolute priority of Massimiliano Allegri. To be continued…
