Juventus meet with Monchi for Douglas Luiz: Next 20 days crucial to deal


A pivotal meeting took place as Juventus aim to secure Douglas Luiz from Aston Villa, with the next 20 days being decisive for the transfer. By the end of June, Villa need to sell at least one player to comply with financial fair play regulations, which may force the Premier League club into making a significant sacrifice. The Brazilian midfielder Douglas Luiz appears to be the most likely candidate.

Calciomercato outline how last week, Aston Villa’s sporting director Monchi met with Cristiano Giuntoli, Juventus’ sporting director, in Milan to discuss the potential transfer of Douglas Luiz to Juventus. The meeting was aimed to assess whether the conditions are favorable to finalize the deal within the next 20 days.

Giuntoli senses an opportunity and is attempting to include USMNT midfielder Weston McKennie in the deal.  Villa have shown interest in the American  but value him at only €15 million, considering his contract expires in 2025. Consequently, Juventus must decide whether to invest an additional €25-30 million to secure Monchi’s approval and proceed with negotiations with Luiz. The situation is heating up, and a decision is expected within the next 20 days.
