Report: Juventus turns down Tottenham’s swap proposal for midfielder

By Eddie Razo -

Over the past few months, Tottenham Hotspur has been linked to Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie.

Managing Director of Football Fabio Paratici has a connection to the American, considering he had a hand in bringing him to Turn during his time with the Italian side. Furthermore, manager Antonio Conte also gives his approval in targeting the 23-year-old.

However, Juventus is running a hard bargain. According to Calciomercato, the Serie A side turned down a swap proposed by the north London club. The Italian media outlet reveals that Tottenham offered midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, but Juventus wants cash for McKennie, €30-million to be exact. 

Furthermore, Ndombele’s wages are too rich for the Serie A giant who wants to offload players and cut their wage bill. Ndombele earns €10-million per year, and Juventus would rather avoid that contract. 

It will be interesting to see whether Tottenham comes back with a cash offer that meets Juventus’s asking price on McKennie.

“Christopher” Conte discovers the top 4 teams are immensely rich and can wait on £60m players like Pulisic to meander around until they find their way. I would assume at some point they good enough to be a part of a second unit and contribute.

I can’t see why they would sell, I watched 45 minutes of Juve vs Napoli earlier this week and this guy was superb.

Not sure about that, he couldn’t even score an easy header, done nothing to impress from my viewings.

Tangy’s wages will be the major stumbling block when trying to get this waste of space out the building. Supposedly he has family members and hangers on ‘advising’. Total car crash, well done Daniel with the due diligence…
