Faced with financial worries, Juventus Turin wants to lower its payroll. With this in mind, the Italian club has already scheduled several departures from its workforce.
Rabiot heads for the exit…
Eighth in Serie A after seven days, with only two victories on the clock, Juventus Turin is not reassuring after the last two painful seasons, finishing in 4th place in the Italian championship. In addition to its sporting concerns, the Italian club must deal with economic problems.
The latest financial report presented on Friday with a deficit of 253.4 million euros in 2021-2022, a record in the history of Calcio, does not leave many solutions to the Old Lady: spending must be reduced. And that will go through the reduction of the club’s payroll. According to Corriere dello Sport, Juve has already scheduled the departures of three elements whose contract will end next June.
Ciao Rabiot, Cuadrado and Sandro?
First there is the side Alex Sandro (31 years old). Rmunr 6 million euros per year, the Brazilian will not receive any extension offer, says the Italian newspaper. The same scenario is emerging for Juan Cuadrado (34). His contract was automatically renewed for a year last season when the Colombian winger reached a certain number of appearances, but Juve tried to negotiate his salary down, without success.
Finally, Adrien Rabiot (27) is also announced as a starter. The French midfielder receives an estimated annual salary of €7 million net and the Bianconeri would make a nice saving with his departure. The Italian club had also agreed with Manchester United this summer for a transfer estimated at 17 million euros, but the financial demands of the former Parisian had derailed the operation. A priori, he will therefore leave rather free next summer.
Uncertain future for Di Maria
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, which confirms the vague future of the three players mentioned, the question may also arise for Angel Di Maria (34). Arrived free this summer, after the end of his contract with PSG, the Argentine winger has signed for a season in Pimont and receives an estimated net annual salary of €6 million. It will be difficult for the former Parisian to negotiate a new contract while retaining such emoluments. In Turin, the next summer promises to be action.
