Seven Juventus players will see their contracts expire in 2022: here’s how the Bianconeri are dealing with each case.
Paulo Dybala and Cristiano Ronaldo are the biggest names on the list.
The Argentinean’s agent is expected to meet Juventus’ executives by the end of the month to discuss a new deal with the Bianconeri.
Dybala rejected a €10m-a-year contract offer a year ago, but Juventus are confident their No.10 will accept a similar offer now.
Ronaldo wants to extend with Juventus
Cristiano Ronaldo could also leave Turin as a free agent next season although, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, his agent Jorge Mendes has asked the Bianconeri to discuss a one-year contract extension.
However, the Old Lady has put talks on hold as the impact of the COVID pandemic on the club’s finances makes it difficult to renew Ronaldo’s €31m-a-year contract.
Another striker, Alvaro Morata, will see his contract expire at the end of the season, but only because of the expiration of his loan spell in Turin.
Juventus have already extended his temporary stay until June 2022 and, next summer, they must decide whether to sign the Spaniard permanently for €35m or send him back to Atletico Madrid.
Juventus to meet Dybala’s agent by the end of the month
Juan Cuadrado and Federico Bernardeschi are also out of contract in 2022. Football Italia understands the Bianconconeri have not begun talks with the Italian winger, while Cuadrado’s stay in Turin is not in doubt with the Colombian who is likely to extend his stay until 2023.
Cuadrado is on a €5m-a-year deal in Turin, while Bernardeschi earns €4m-a-year.
Mattia Perin and Mattia De Sciglio have returned from their loans and, at this stage, it seems unlikely Juventus will offer them a new deal, while Giorgio Chiellini is currently out of contract.
Juventus will soon offer a one-year extension, so the Bianconeri captain could potentially be the eighth player who will see his deal expire in June 2022.
