Juventus, Szczesny’s farewell and a saving of 16-17 million: the details of the deal with Al Nassr

Wojciech Szczesny it is one step away from Al Nassr. According to what we read today on newsstands on Tuttosport, Juventus is on the verge of finalizing the sale of the Polish goalkeeper to Saudi Arabia for 4-5 million euros. Certainly not a huge sum, by virtue of the absolute value of the former Roma and Arsenal, but still a good operation because it allows the Old lady to save 12 million on gross salary. This saving, plus the 4-5 million we talked about, will allow Juventus to hire Michele Di Gregorio from Monza on loan with obligation to buy for around twenty million.

The salary itself was the economic driving force – there is also a technical one, albeit less important – to accelerate the sale. One of the cornerstones of the new Juventus course is in fact the lowering of the wage bill. Monte of which Tek’s salary represented one of the highest peaks: Cristiano Giuntoli had proposed to him (as he is proposing to Dusan Vlahovic, who represents the summit of the mountain with his salary about to rise to 12 million net) to spread the amount extending the contract. Upon the Pole’s legitimate refusal, considering that there would not have been the conditions to renew even in a year’s time, the Juventus technical director decided to push the deadline and bring forward Szczesny’s replacement.

All that was missing was for ‘Tek’ to choose to separate from Juve, because he could also have remained separated at home, waiting to be freed for free. An idea that apparently didn’t appeal to him, while he was understandably attracted by the 40 million for two seasons offered by his ex-teammate Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al Nassr, who called him personally to convince him. And soon, barring surprises, he will call him back to welcome him.
