Torino’s Calciomercato, Gineitis Renews: a Move to Persuade Juric?

Torino has pulled off a spectacular foresight move in the transfer market by renewing the contract of their player, Gvidas Gineitis, perhaps also with a spin to extend the stay of Ivan Juric in the team.

In a remarkable (without indulging in hyperboles) announcement that woke the Rooster fans today, Torino officially announced the renewal of Gvidas Gineitis’s contract until 30th of June, 2028, as stated on its official portals. The young Lithuanian’s contract, which was initially set to expire in 2026, has hence been extended for two additional seasons, though the economic adjustment around this extension has yet to be disclosed.

The deal struck by the Vagnati-Cairo tandem indicates a clear stance from the Piedmontese club, underlining their preference to invest in their own midfielder. This stands as a visionary move, the first piece in the puzzle to build a future-forward team, thereby reinforcing their commitment towards young, high-potential footballers.

However, we must tread lightly: the contract renewal of the player born in 2004 (who’ll be blowing out 20 candles this coming April) might—lest we jump to conclusions—also act as a catalyst for the Croatian coach, Ivan Juric. For days, there have been speculations regarding Juric’s future, where his continuance in the Piedmontese capital after the season seems anything but guaranteed. Juric himself has frequently told reporters that there are qualms he cannot ignore in his evaluations: namely whether or not Torino will qualify for a European competition and the presence of a clear club project for the future.

If the first will be confirmed or negated solely by the results, the latter aspect claims Gineitis’s renewal as its primary response to the coach’s uncertainties. Should it be clear, the extension of midfielder of great potential, who still has much to prove, will certainly not cure all the ills of Torino. However, it is a strong sign that the Piedmontese club conveys within its milieu. This is particularly true if the athlete in question is one of the stalwarts of the man who sits on the bench.
