Will Sami Khedira Bid Farewell to Juventus?


It has been officially announced that Juventus has won the Italian League Serie A 2019-2020. Now, they are focusing on how to face the last 16 from the second-leg of the Champions League against Olympique Lyonnais. In addition to the game, it has also been reported that the management of Juventus is trying to break the contract of Sami Khedira. Both parties are looking for going into an agreement related to their deal.

The management of the Juventus club wants to constrict the finances for the coming season before the transfer window opens and the best way to do this is to conclude the contract of a footballer to avoid making the payments. They are considering this as their ‘less than the maximum’ policy. Sami Khedira seems to have fallen into this category. After all, he is not so young at 33 years of age.

The annual salary that the professional footballer from Germany gets from Juventus is 6 million Euros currently. The contract between him and the Italian club is going to expire in 2021 summer. The central midfielder joined the Serie A club during the season 2015-2016. He has made appearances in 144 games and has 21 goals to his name.

Before Sami Khedira, Juventus had released Miralem Pjanic officially and sent him to Barcelona. The name of the midfielder from Bosnia-Herzegovina was included in the transfer package for Arthur Melo. The Italian club released Pjanic with a fee amounting to 65 million Euros. At that moment, Juventus bought Arthur Melo for around 72 million Euros.

Sami Khedira played in 25 matches in his debut season with Juventus with 5 goals to his name. In the next season, he appeared in 46 matches with 5 goals. He has won 3 Copa Italia, 5 Italian League, and 1 Super Cup Italy trophies.
