The Turin “Juventus” page made the first transfer official after Pirlo’s arrival on all social networks yesterday. Schalke’s Weston McKennie will play for Juve. The American player has already undergone a medical examination yesterday.
Juventus have added 22-year-old American midfielder Weston McKennie to Schalke. One year lease with a redemption right – this is the agreement with the Germans. So, the American will join “Juventus” on a lease basis; however, according to the press, the Turinese have the right to buy him out if they wish finally.
Raised by Dallas, McKennie is a midfielder, plays in the center, and has been one of the key figures in Schalke’s core since 2017.
A member of the US national team visited Turin on Friday, underwent standard procedures – a medical examination, passed the Covid-19 test, and is now a full member of the team.
If the American succeeds at Juve, his fixed transfer value will be 18.5 million euros. +7 million euros is the compensation budget for the expected success achieved with the Turinese in the following years.
McKinney has been with Schalke since 2016 and has scored five goals in 91 appearances for him during that time. In 19 matches played with the national team jersey, Weston managed to score six goals.
