Henderson’s Move to Juventus on Hold – Why?

Turin’s Juventus FC is focusing on Liverpool’s captain, Jordan Henderson, amid rumours about possibly transferring him. The club is taking a step back to weigh all of the potential ramifications of such a move. Rumours, confirmed in recent days, suggest that Henderson eagerly awaits the nod from Sporting Director Cristiano Giuntoli to leave his current club, Al-Ettifaq.

Citing his unhappiness with the “golden prison” and the 25 million annual payoff, he’s looking to join Juventus and boost his bid for the England national team ahead of Euro 2024. “With Henderson onboard, the likes of Miretti, Nicolussi Caviglia and Nonge would see significantly less playing time,” said an inside source. Given his vast capabilities, Henderson is considered a perfect fit by everyone at Continassa, including manager Allegri.

Therein lies the critical question that could alter Juventus’s transfer market approach: is it advisable to jeopardise the harmony of a squad that is surpassing expectations, even reducing a seemingly unbridgeable gap with arch-rivals Inter, with a new addition?
