Juventus to make McKennie’s move permanent

Multiple reports in Italy claim Juventus will make Weston McKennie’s loan move permanent for €18.5m.

The Old Lady had signed the 22-year-old in a €4.5 loan deal from Schalke 04 last summer.

“The obligation for Juventus to definitely acquire the player’s registrations rights, subject to the achievement of certain given sportive objectives by the end of the 2020/2021 season,” Juventus official statement read.

“The right for Juventus to definitively acquire the player’s registration rights in case these given objectives are not achieved.

“In both cases, the agreed consideration for the definitive acquisition is € 18,5 million, payable in three years, which might be increased up to a maximum of € 7 million upon achievement of further sporting performance objectives over the duration of the employment contract with the player.”

According to reports from and Tuttomercatoweb, Juventus have now decided to make the player’s loan move permanent regardless the achievement of the sportive objectives this season.

The Old Lady will then pay €18.5m to secure the services of the 22-year-old permanently.

McKennie has been voted the best American player of 2020.
