Juventus to complete Di Gregorio deal next week, Szczesny’s future uncertain


Juventus look set to complete the transfer of Monza goalkeeper Michele Di Gregorio next week, but there are doubts over the future of Wojciech Szczęsny. Monza director Adriano Galliani and Juve’s Cristiano Giuntoli have reportedly laid the groundwork, with only the final handshake and a few details remaining.

Deal Structure and Financial Details

Tuttosport report that the agreement for Di Gregorio, who was named the best goalkeeper in Serie A for the 2023-24 season, involves a loan with an obligation to buy. The buy clause is triggered upon the first point  that Juventus secures, starting from February 2025. The total cost of the operation is set at €20 million. Di Gregorio will sign a contract through 2029, earning €2 million net per season plus bonuses.

Goalkeeper Dilemma: Szczesny or Perin?

With Di Gregorio’s arrival, Juventus face the challenge of making room in their goalkeeper lineup. Both Mattia Perin and Wojciech Szczesny are potential candidates to leave. Fiorentina has long been interested in Perin, who is eager for more playing time and awaits an opportunity with a high-level team. Financially, Juventus would prefer to offload Szczesny, who earns €6.5 million net per season plus bonuses. Szczesny recently rejected Juventus’ proposal to spread his salary over a two-year contract extension.

Despite lucrative offers from Arab clubs, Szczesny is determined to stay in Turin until his contract expires on June 30, 2025, according to Tuttosport. However, opportunities in the Premier League could soon arise if goalkeepers like Ederson and Alisson move to Al-Ittihad and Al Nassr, respectively, creating vacancies at Manchester City and Liverpool.

Carlo Pinsoglio is expected to remain as Juventus’ third-choice goalkeeper, with a contract extension keeping him at the club until 2026.
