Juventus wants to keep one of its stars at the end of the contract


Despite difficulties in Serie A (7th), Juventus smiles after their easy qualification in the Europa League, against FC Nantes (3-0; 4-1 over the two meetings), this Thursday.

Massimiliano Allegri, Juventus Torino

After the draw in the first leg (1-1), at home, the Old Lady had doubts, but they were quickly swept away. After 10 minutes of play, the Italian club led 2-0 against the Canaries, reduced to ten for a handball by Nicolas Pallois in the penalty area. An easy qualification to the next round followed, where Juventus will face German club Freiburg on March 9 and 16.

Juventus want to keep Di Maria

Enchanted by Angel Di Maria against FC Nantes (author of a hat-trick), Massimiliano Allegri greeted “a champion” who is “different from the others”. But the 35-year-old Argentinian, freely recruited last summer from PSG, worries the club’s management. Indeed, the 2022 world champion is out of contract in June 2023.

Asked about the subject by Sky Sportsthe sporting director of the Old Lady, Gianluca Pessotto, hopes that Angel Di Maria will agree to continue the adventure at Juventus: “With (Angel) Di Maria, the team has something more in terms of charisma, quality and the group follows. If Angel Di Maria will extend? We hope. It is important to finish the season well and he will help us. We hope that (Angel) Di Maria will continue next season”.

Juventus could, however, be faced with a problem regarding this contract extension.

The decisive classification for an extension?

The former Real Madrid and Manchester United winger could be put off by the absence of the European Cup next summer. Juventus, sanctioned in Serie A by 15 points, is 7th in the standings, with 32 points, 9 points from 6th, Atalanta, and 12 units from AC Milan (4th).

That said, the Argentinian, who has not spoken with the club about his future, said he was happy in Piedmont.
