Prior to the transfer window, we had already seen Juventus midfielder Weston McKennie being linked to several Premier League clubs, with Leeds United included.

That’s why it was no surprise to see the 24-year-old ending up joining the Whites on an initial loan, with an option for a permanent move.

As Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri today held a press conference, there were obviously many questions about the transfer window, and one of them was for him to compare the numbers from the Italian market compared to the English.

Allegri only wanted to speak of the Old Lady’s moves, mentioning McKennie’s departure to Leeds.

“They are objective things. Juve made a good transfer market, achieved their goals with McKennie who wanted to leave and found a good solution,” Massimiliano Allegri told the Italian media (via TuttoMercatoWeb).

Aké went to play, Zuelli to Pisa, Pellegrini to Lazio and maybe we’ll meet tomorrow. It is useless to make comparisons with English football. The 20 Italian teams have a turnover of 2 billion, those of the Premier League 8. The ratio is 1:4.”

McKennie’s loan to Leeds includes an option which is reportedly worth €30m.

Right after the move was confirmed, we saw the Italian media claiming Juventus fans do not regret his exit, especially because the potential sale would be done for a great amount, as the player is ‘not remotely worth’ that price.

That’s something that obviously only time will tell, as the midfielder could end up impress at the Whites and make those numbers sound fair.
