Weston McKennie’s recent club performances might’ve landed him a new contract to keep playing in Serie A.
It has been recently reported that Juventus have started negotiations with Weston McKennie’s agents to keep the American at the club for years to come. With the USMNT midfielder's current bianconeri contract expiring next summer, the club would be offering McKennie to renew until 2027 with a salary increase.

Talks are reportedly going to intensify in the coming weeks as we approach the American’s last year of his contract.
It was just last July when reports stated Juventus and current manager Massimiliano Allegri's disinterest to keep McKennie at the club following his lackluster loan spell with Leeds United in the Premier League.
According to the world-renowned transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, the USMNT star was told he was not a part of the plans ahead of the new campaign and would be available in the transfer market.

Six months later, McKennie has arguably turned himself into Juventus’ best player, often performing at a high level throughout the Vecchia Signora’s turbulent season. He's brought out the magic wand this season at the Allianz Stadium.
