Juventus to sign Weston McKennie in €3m + €18m deal

Juventus are set to sign Schalke midfielder Weston McKennie on an initial loan with an option to buy, Gianluca Di Marzio reports.

McKennie will join the Italian champions on a €3m loan with an option to make the deal permanent for €18m.

The young American has attracted plenty of interest this summer, with Southampton getting very close to signing him.

But the Saints have missed out on McKennie with Juventus poised to sign him instead.

McKennie, 21, has made his desire to leave Schalke clear and is training separately from his teammates.

Hertha BSC and Monaco have both tried to sign McKennie, but exited the race for different reasons.
