Juventus’ Weston McKennie spent the second half of last season on loan at Leeds United, where he managed one assist from 20 games.

The midfielder wasn’t able to stop the Whites from being relegated, and didn’t contribute much along the way.

Calciomercato state the Old Lady would have received almost €40m, if Leeds had stayed in the top flight due to an automatic purchase clause.

Following a nightmare spell at Leeds, Massimiliano Allegri had to include the 25-year-old in his plans, after Juve weren’t able to find him a new club in the last window.

Due to injuries to other players, Allegri used the American as a right wing-back, and with his displays, he ‘forcefully took back his place’ at the Turin club. He has also been used in midfield.

After a series of impressive performances, ‘everything changed’ for the ex-Schalke man at Juventus. Due to the change of status, the report states the Italian club want to hand him a new deal.

McKennie’s deal expires in 2025 and his latest form would make him an interesting option for a few clubs in the upcoming windows. It’s said Juve have informed his agent of their desire to renew the contract and have also scheduled a meeting in the next few weeks.

To sum it up, McKennie has put his disappointing spell at Leeds behind him, and with the new deal at Juve, he’s now set to receive a pay rise.
