Juventus have turned USA midfielder Weston McKennie's loan from Schalke into a permanent £16million move. The Italian giants have exercised their right to sign the 22-year-old until 2025. McKennie, capped 21 times by the USA, joined Juventus on loan last summer, three years after making his professional debut with Schalke's first team.
Born: Feb. 5, 1985 in Funchal, Portugal * Became the first player to score at least 20 goals in 12 consecutive seasons in Europe's top five leagues when he scored for Juventus against Spezia in his 600th career league appearance on March 2 2021. Ronaldo became the first European player to score 100 international goals when his double against Sweden took his Portugal tally to 101 in a UEFA Nations League win in September 2020.
Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon has revealed that he plans to retire by June 2023 at the latest but won't rule out hanging up his boots sooner. The 43-year-old's contract with the Turin club expires at the end of the season and a renewal is yet to be agreed with the Italian champions. However, despite his future being up in the air with Juventus, Buffon insists he still have plenty more to give and will call it quits in two years time.
