Juventus transfer updates: Thomas Partey and Zapata interest, Higuain and Khedira decision, Matuidi joining MLS, De Ligt update
Juventus continue to get linked with many players in the summer transfer window and the latest one is Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey. The Bianconeri have joined the race for Partey, who is understood to be a summer priority for Premier League outfit Arsenal.
Sami Khedira and Gonzalo Higuain
Juve stars, Sami Khedira and Gonzalo Higuain apparently wouldn’t survive beyond this summer. The out-of-favour duo is said to be not in the plans of new manager Andrea Pirlo, who is ready to let them off the hook. Khedira made only 12 appearances in the 19/20 season.
Furthermore, Pirlo reportedly wants Atalanta striker Duvan Zapata to join the Bianconeri. The in-form Colombian striker is valued at around 30 million euros. Arkadiusz Milik is another striker Juve are said to be keeping tabs on.
Juventus have confirmed the departure of Blaise Matuidi, who will play for MLS outfit Inter Miami, owned by David Beckham next season. Juve stated that they had terminated the contract of the French World Cup winner by mutual consent. The 33-year-old joined the Turin-based outfit in 2017.
Matthijs de Ligt
Matthijs de Ligt has successfully undergone shoulder surgery, which will keep him out of action for around three months. The 21-year-old joined the Bianconeri from Ajax last summer and has endured a decent debut season.
