Juventus reach agreement for contract extension of highly-rated Kenan Yildiz

Juventus have reached an agreement to extend the contract of highly-rated youngster Kenan Yildiz, reports Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

The 18-year-old’s current deal expires in 2025, and the Bianconeri will extend his stay at the Allianz Stadium for two more years.

After a decade-long spell with the youth ranks at Bayern Munich, Juve snapped up Yildiz last summer despite overwhelming competition from Europe’s elite clubs – which is further proof of his talent.

Featuring for Juve’s Next Gen squad last season, Yildiz has made the leap to the first team this term, featuring in both their Serie A games.

Despite half of his peers heading out on loan, the Bianconeri consider the Turkish prodigy a valuable asset this season as well as for the future.

Yildiz is expected to enjoy significant game time as the season grows, with Juve manager Massimiliano Allegri placing a huge trust in him.

Touted as the future of the Turkish national team, Yildiz is as good as his compatriot Arda Guler, who caught worldwide attention with his heroics at Fenerbahce before moving to Real Madrid this summer.

A prominent role with the Bianconeri will also increase Yildiz’s chances of breaking into Turkey’s senior team.

Coming off a turbulent campaign, the Old Lady started the new season on a high note with a big win over Udinese before being held to a disappointing draw against Bologna last weekend.

They will travel to Empoli for their next Serie A clash this weekend.
