Juventus renewal: From Gatti to Locatelli, the focus

Juventus’ market strategy after the arrival of new sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli.

“Despite a transfer market that brought very few new faces, the goal is to lay solid foundations for the present and the future,” says Juventus’ sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli.

The start of Juventus’ season, though lacking in recognized play, is pushing the team to the top positions of Serie A, awaiting their return to European competition. The Bianconeri are among the top favorites for this 2023/2024 season.

Two players have officially renewed their contract with Juventus. Defender Federico Gatti and midfielder Manuel Locatelli have signed new contracts until 2028.

“Gatti has shown great dedication to the cause and has already scored 3 goals in 36 total matches played,” says the club’s announcement.

Locatelli, also a key player for Allegri, has already played 103 matches for Juventus, scoring 4 goals. Both players have signed new contracts until 2028.

Other contract renewals are in the works, with midfielder Nicolò Fagioli set to sign a new deal soon. The future of players like Alex Sandro, Daniele Rugani, and Adrien Rabiot is still uncertain.

“Giuntoli is working on other contract extensions, including those of Fagioli and discussions for other players,” mentioned sources close to the negotiations. “The situation of Adrien Rabiot is still open, and it’s not guaranteed he will stay at Juve.”
