Matias Vecino's Potential Farewell From Lazio To Juventus

The Uruguayan midfielder, who has been in exceptional form in recent appearances, may bid farewell to Lazio after just two seasons, owing to the peculiarities of the transfer market.

In contrast to previous outings where the former Inter player mostly featured as a substitute, Matias Vecino secured a spot in the starting lineup during Lazio's recent league match against Milan, delivering an impressive performance.

Despite not registering a goal or an assist during the 78 minutes played against Stefano Pioli's side, which he had achieved against Cagliari (assisting Felipe Anderson splendidly), the current Biancoceleste number 5 showcased a string of impressive plays in the match against Milan last Friday at the Olimpico stadium. Vecino's standout performance didn't go unnoticed, catching the attention of various experts, including Cristiano Giuntoli, the Sporting Director of Juventus.

Giuntoli, who harbors a particular fondness for former Inter players from his tenure at Napoli, views Matias Vecino as one of the prime targets in the upcoming summer transfer window. This inclination is substantiated by recent reports that have surfaced.

Indeed, Massimiliano Allegri's Juventus has reportedly included Matias Vecino's name in their list of potential signings. Vecino, currently tied to Lazio until June 2025, has attracted interest not only from Juventus but also from other clubs, including Felipe Anderson, whose contract with Lazio expires in June.

The possibility of Vecino's transfer arises due to the final year of his contract with Lazio, which could enable Juventus to acquire the midfielder for a nominal fee.

As Juventus seeks to fill the void left by Paul Pogba's departure for the next four years, and with Federico Fagioli only set to return in the latter stages of the season, the club is considering retaining Adrien Rabiot for at least another year. Rabiot's contract with Juventus expires in June, and the continuation of Massimiliano Allegri as the team's coach, contracted until 2025, may play a pivotal role in shaping this negotiation.
