Juventus could sell Weston McKennie in January

Juventus' US midfielder Weston McKennie warms up prior to the Italian Serie A football match between Torino and Juventus on October 15, 2022 at the Olympic stadium in Turin

Juventus could sell American midfielder Weston McKennie if his performances do not improve, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

The United States international has been in poor form for a while, and the Bianconeri could let him go in January.

Massimiliano Allegri has used McKennie in different roles, but he is yet to nail down a spot in any of those positions.

McKennie has made 13 appearances for Juventus this season, scoring one goal and assisting one. The 24-year-old has played in central midfield, left-wing and right-wing.

He has struggled across the board, and Juventus are considering showing him the exit door. His dwindling importance to the first team will only worsen when Paul Pogba returns to full fitness.

If McKennie’s performances do not improve between now and the World Cup, Juventus will consider letting him go permanently. However, it is unclear if they will sanction a loan deal for the former FC Dallas youth star.

The Turin club paid around €20 million to sign McKennie from Schalke 04 after his one-year loan. They would love to recoup most of that figure.

Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea, Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund are interested in the pressing machine.

Juventus are struggling this season. They sit in eighth after ten Serie A games and are on the brink of Champions League group stage elimination.

The results and performances have been poor, with many players failing to show their best versions. McKennie is one of those players.

However, the authorities at the Old Lady have refused to dismiss Allegri, citing the enormous fee they will have to pay if they sack him.

They may pay a heavier price on the pitch if things do not improve soon.
