The Serbian striker at Continassa will meet new coach Giuntoli for the first time. The blues in the background, like the Moroccan
The holidays are almost over. Tomorrow Dusan Vlahovic will be among the first Juventus players to line up at the Continassa as he missed the June games in Serbia due to a physical problem. Unlike the national teams, DV9 is therefore called up for the first day of the women’s rally and is ready to undergo the usual medical tests. Vlahovic was able to relax first in Greece and then in Ibiza, but in the weeks off he didn’t give up keeping fit and worked with personal trainer Uros Domazet. After the painful 2022/23 season, he has an important season ahead of him. However, it remains to be seen whether he will still play in Turin with Juve or in a new team.
face to face
Tomorrow Dusan will meet Massimiliano Allegri and a small group of companions, but above all he will meet the new Technical Director Cristiano Giuntoli for the first time. His future will also depend on the decisions of the former Napoli marketman who officially landed on the planet Juve a few days ago. The first face-to-face meeting will be useful for both parties to understand what is going on. Recently, Vlahovic used the lady’s anthem as the “soundtrack” in an Instagram story posted with Domazet. But you know, social cues leave whatever weight they find. The disappointments of last year, not taking part in the next Champions League and the relationship with Allegri, which is certainly not entirely rosy, are the reasons that could persuade him to leave. On the other hand there is the Juventus club, which will in all probability be forced to cut back on the transfer market for budget reasons. And Dusan is one of the main suspects, whether because he is sought after by the top clubs or because of his high salary (€7 million net per season), even if there are no real negotiations yet. Only talks with Bayern Munich, a little more with Chelsea, maybe the club that are more considering the possibility of signing the Serbian striker. However, Juve aren’t ready to discount too much for now: we expect a negotiable valuation of 80m, albeit up to a point.
In the absence of live negotiations, Juve have not yet defined who can potentially take his inheritance in the squad as there would also be the solution of investing more in a winger and keeping only Milik and Kean as pure strikers. When it comes to profiles, too, we are basically still in the idea stage. Some perhaps unaffordable, like Rasmus Hojlund (Atalanta, urgently wanted by Manchester United) or Jonathan David (Lilla, Napoli would seriously consider it in case of Osimhen sale), or suggestive but hardly viable like Lukaku, who are increasingly destined to return to the Inter. However, others are more sustainable and therefore viable. In particular, one that would bring both Giuntoli and Allegri to an agreement. We’re talking about Youssef En-Nesyri, a Moroccan striker from Seville who was born in 1997. He has two years left on his contract with the Andalusians but he got the right offer (30m, maybe even less given the Spanish’s financial difficulties). ) he can go. Juve recently met him in the semi-finals of the Europa League. En-Nesyri scored a goal at the stadium and celebrated advancement to the next round. Why do you like it? He has the physicality to play alone (192 centimeters and the ability to defend the ball), he’s not a pure striker, but he knows how to score tough goals. And it works great for the team. In short, he excels where Vlahovic is criticized.
