Sky Sports Italia said on the 27th (Korean time) that Leeds are ready to pay 25 million pounds (38.1 billion won) for McKennie. McKennie’s contract with Juventus runs until June 2025. Sky Sports Italia said, “Juventus values McKennie at 35 million euros (46.9 billion won).” As there is a difference of nearly 10 billion won from the amount Leeds thinks, it remains to be seen whether it will lead to actual recruitment.
McKennie is a central midfielder 메이저사이트 who has been represented by age groups in the United States. He has made 41 appearances and scored 9 goals for the senior national team. He also played an active part in the World Cup held in Qatar last year. In August 2020, he was loaned from Schalke 04 in the German Bundesliga to Juventus, and the following year, a full transfer clause was activated and he remained at Juventus.
In his all season, he has made 15 appearances, 1 goal and 1 assist in Serie A (21 appearances and 3 goals last year). He doesn’t have a lot of attack points, but his strength is his versatility, where he can cut off opponents’ attacks at the right time and even take on defense. He played full-time as a starter in all three recent league games. It is the ‘core resource’ that director Massimiliano Allegri trusts.
At a relatively young age in his mid-20s, the possibilities are endless, and he has emerged as a target for a big club. At the end of last year, rumors of a transfer to Tottenham Hotspur surfaced. At the time, Spanish media Ars said, “McKennie can join Tottenham in the winter transfer market,” and “Conte thinks of McKennie as the second Arturo Vidal.”
