Juventus of Turin completed the renewal of Giorgio Chiellini for the next two seasons. After ending his contract on 30 June and being one of Italy’s stars in the UEFA European Championship, the centre-back closed his career at the club of his loves and where he made national history.
But at the same time, Chiellini’s continuity meant that another player had to pack his bags and look for a new destination in order to remain in an important team and not be on the bench. we are talking about Merih Demiral.
The Turkish centre-back, who has just completed a very weak individual and collective Eurocup with his national team, does not want to continue with Juventus Turin because he is the fourth central defender in Massimiliano Allegri’s rotation (Bonucci, De Ligt and Chiellini ) and considers it’s time to change clubs to continue in the European elite. And everything seems to indicate that he will have another opportunity.
Atalanta appears on the scene
As reported by TuttoSport, Merih Demiral is very close to being loaned to Atalanta from Bergamo, which will have an option to buy 35 million euros at the end of the season. A golden opportunity for a young and talented player.
Atalanta from Bergamo is looking for a central because it will sell Cuti Romero to Tottenham Hotspur in the coming days and the Turk seems an interesting option, both for age and profile, taking into account the style of play that Gian Piero proclaims Gasperini .
Demiral would like to change clubs and more to the one that will compete in the UEFA Champions League, with the aim of fighting at some point for the Serie A title.
