Weston McKennie is reportedly being lined up for a new contract at Juventus, with Paul Pogba playing a part in that decision.

How Paul Pogba Is Influencing The Future Of Weston McKennie

The Bianconeri have seen their midfield options depleted as Pogba serves a suspension on the back of his failed drugs test.


It remains to be seen when the France international will be cleared to play competitive football again.

Nicolo Fagioli has also been hit with a seven-month ban for breaches of Italian betting regulations.


This means that Juve are two proven performers down in the middle of the park.

That situation could play into the hands of USMNT star McKennie.


Also, the American has enjoyed a remarkable reversal in fortune.

This happened when he spent the second-half of last season suffering relegation out of the Premier League during a forgettable loan spell at Leeds.

He has seen the slate wiped clean in Turin, with the most being made of an unexpected second chance.

However, Calciomercato reports that McKennie is now in line for an extension to his current contract.

That deal is due to run until 2025.


But fresh terms may be tabled as the 25-year-old has taken in 528 minutes of Serie A football in the 2023-24 campaign.

However, he is taking on more responsibility as Pogba and Fagioli remain out of action.
