Report – Juventus loanee set to return to the club

May 20, 2022 - 8:30 pm

Juventus sent Merih Demiral out on loan to Atalanta at the start of this season after he became dissatisfied with a lack of playing time at the club.

La Dea and the Bianconeri have a very good relationship which helped the former sign Cristian Romero before selling him to Tottenham.

They replaced the Argentinian with Demiral after signing him permanently from Juventus.

The Bianconeri had hoped that Demiral will also make them a fortune by joining Atalanta permanently.

He started his time at Bergamo very well, and it seemed it would go according to plan.

However, Calciomercato says he has spent more time on the bench in recent game as Atalanta relies on other defenders who are ahead of him on the pecking order.

They risk missing out on European football also, and that will stop them from signing him permanently.

Juve FC Says

Demiral left Juve because he wasn’t playing enough matches, and he even sent a farewell message to the club’s fans.

Now it seems he would return to Turin again when this campaign finishes, and that is not a pleasant scenario.

The current Juve team is good enough, and they have identified other targets that can join them.

Demiral will likely be placed on the market again to find a new home.

    This is another headache, I thought he would have been pretty secure there.

    Nonsense. The problem is NOT the playing time of Demiral with La Dea. He is their rock. The problem is Atalanta NOT qualifying for European competitions and thus not getting the millions. Atalanta are clever, very clever; they made a huge profit from Romero and hoped to do the same with Demiral. But they cannot afford the risk of spending millions on demiral without the incoming millions from UEFA. Still, not a problem for Juventus F C . Demiral is a class defender and there will always be offers for him from other clubs. NO PROBLEM.
