Juventus have set their sights on Liverpool’s ex-captain Jordan Henderson to strengthen their midfield. As early as now, it appears that the negotiation process is advancing positively.
The Italian club has agreed to the conditions of an 18-month loan contract with a clause incorporated, which allows for an early exit by June. Impressively, Juventus is not expected to pay anything for Henderson’s transfer in the current season and will only need to cough up a modest 1.5 million euros as salary.
Henderson, 33, boasts an illustrious career laden with trophy wins as Liverpool’s captain before agreeing to a lucrative deal in Saudi Arabia. Despite the move, he is eager to return to high-stakes football.
Before his stint in Saudi Arabia with Al-Ettifaq, Henderson has always played in the Premier League, particularly for Liverpool. He honed his skills in Sunderland and gathered experience in Coventry before joining Liverpool from 2011 to 2023. This is where he ascended to the position of captain at Anfield.
His tenure with Liverpool included a diverse range of victories which he helped spearhead, including two Football League Cups in 2012 and 2022, a UEFA Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup all in 2019. On top of that, he contributed to a Premier League win in 2020, and both an FA Cup and FA Community Shield in 2022.
Having made a significant mark at Liverpool with 360 official appearances and netting 29 goals, the possibility of Henderson donning Juventus’ colors for the forthcoming chapter of his footballing career seems likely.
