Wojciech Szczesny is currently a Juventus goalkeeper who has performed brilliantly since being trusted to replace Gianluigi Buffon, but Juventus’ ambition to continue to have a complete squad is still huge. One unidentified source recently revealed that Bianconneri will seek a transfer saga for Spanish National Team goalkeeper, David De Gea next summer.
Admittedly, Juventus is one of the teams that is determined to continue to grow over the past few years, starting from the moment they returned to Italy and won the Scudetto for the past seven years in a row. Their success dominates Italy not only because of tactics or player quality, but a very good transfer policy.
Last summer, Juventus landed a number of quality new players, like Emre Can, Joao Cancelo and the most sensational Cristano Ronaldo. Juventus’ ambition to win the European Champions League title was huge, as they had never won the trophy again since 1996.
Whereas, David De Gea has actually been linked with a number of European giants over the past few years, but Juventus’ name has not appeared in the list of interested Spanish goalkeepers. It’s just that the story is different at this time, according to an unidentified source through the column in The Times Magazine. He believes that the Old Lady is very serious in a consideration of bringing De Gea next summer.
Especially after watching the performance of the Spanish goalkeeper in the match at Old Trafford against Manchester United midweek yesterday. The source believes, if the Red Devils do not release the player, then Juventus will wait until his contract at Old Trafford ends in 2020.
“De Gea played against his future club on Wednesday [against Juventus in the Champions League]. Juve is a smart transfer specialist. If United doesn’t sell it in the summer, Juventus will wait until the goalkeeper’s contract runs out [in 2020],” told the source to The Times.
The Times believes that Juventus is in a strong position to get De Gea, in line with its current status. Besides being a regular champion in Italy, the Bianconeri are now seen as serious candidates for Champions League winners.
