An attempt is being made to complete the interlocking to unlock the negotiation.

Juventus soccer market: Douglas Luiz è the man the Bianconeri have framed to build their future, but his arrival depends on the departure of Weston McKennie. Only the latter's departure can in fact allow the closing of negotiations with Aston Villa for the Brazilian. And the deal could also include a promising youngster like Samuel Iling Jr.

Taking stock of the negotiation è 'Tuttosport' according to which Juventus and Aston Villa have in fact already finalized the agreements for Douglas Luiz’s transfer to Bianconero. However, some knots remain to be unraveled, mainly related to the will of McKennie. The latter would not be against the move to the Premier League, but not all the pieces would already be in place.

In particular, Juventus must find an agreement with McKennie from an economic point of view. The player is aiming to extract a severance package, which is not guaranteed in view of his contract expiring only in 2025. The timetable forò is tight, as Aston Villa wants to finalize the transfer of Douglas Luiz by June 30 in order to comply with Financial Fair Play commitments.

Due to technical and physical characteristics, Douglas Luiz would be perfect for Thiago Motta’s game. He would be one of the two midfielders in the middle of the field and would provide that filter needed to balance the Juventus that will beà. Giuntoli seems determined to find an agreement quickly, so as to focus on other equally urgent matters, such as the dream called Koopmeiners.
