According to Sky Sport, Juventus will have an obligation to buy the player permanently if the finish top four this season.

Juventus, however, are open to signing McKennie regardless from the possible obligation to buy.

The final fee for McKennie’s Juventus transfer could reach €30m with add-ons.

The former Schalke 04 has four goals in 21 appearances in all competitions so far this season.
