- Weah completes move to Juventus
- Juve complete deal for €12m
- Signs five-year contract in Turin
WHAT HAPPENED? The 23-year-old has signed a contract through 2028 which will see him earn around €2 million (£1.6m/$2.2m) per season. Juventus paid Lille €12m (£10.3m/$13m) to secure his services, with Lille making a profit after paying €10m (£8.6m/$10.9m) while securing a ten per cent cut of a future resale.
Weah arrives in Turin after spending the last four seasons at Lille, where he won Ligue 1 in 2020-21 having previously won two winners' medals with Paris Saint-Germain. Internationally, Weah has 31 caps and four goals for the U.S. men's national team, with the most famous goal coming in the World Cup opener against Wales.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The move to Juventus sees Weah take a step up the ladder, even if Juventus are a club currently experiencing a bit of turmoil. The Bianconeri were deducted points during this past season due to their violation of financial rules and, as a result, will play in the Europa Conference League next season.
Weah looks set to play at wingback for Juventus as the club loses long-time starter Juan Cuadrado. The USMNT star has previously played in the role for Lille, who deployed him at wingback for stretches of last season amid an injury crisis.
