Tottenham target Weston McKennie to remain at Juventus
According to Fabrizio Romano, Tottenham target Weston McKennie will remain at Juventus. Spurs have not officially bid for him despite wanting him on loan earlier and new manager Max Allegri wants to keep him at Juve.
Within a short period of time, Weston McKennie has managed to make himself a household name in Europe. He made a name for himself at Schalke but it was not until Juventus signed him last season that he truly showcased his talents. The USA international is a regular for Juventus and was a bright spark for them in an otherwise gloomy last season.
Despite that, McKennie found himself linked with a move away from Juve. Spurs were among the most interested clubs to be after him. However, they were not keen on any swap deal for him and wanted an initial loan deal as claimed by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano earlier. Several other Premier League clubs were also interested.
It would seem Spurs might not be getting their hands on McKennie for two reasons. Firstly, they did not make an official bid based on their interest. Secondly, Juve manager Max Allegri wants to keep the player as a part of his plans and has ruled out any potential sale as relayed by Romano.
