It is believed that Sergio Aguier’s future at Juventus is in jeopardy, after the Argentine forward’s contract with the club was terminated on Friday.
It was reported earlier on Friday that the Argentinean striker had agreed a new deal with Juve but a report from Italian media outlet La Gazzetta dello Sport on Saturday claimed that the club has cancelled the agreement due to financial problems.
Juve, who have struggled financially this season, have been trying to sell the 25-year-old to a number of top European clubs, including Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Bayern Munich, but it appears the Bianconeri have finally decided to do it for a lower fee than expected.
According to the report, the Biancons had agreed to a new contract with Aguier, who scored a hat-trick in Italy’s 3-2 win over England on Saturday, in the summer of 2021.
The move is said to have been approved by Juventus’ president, Walter Sabatini, but the contract was cancelled in a bid to comply with the financial requirements of the Italian Super League.
Juventus were reported to be keen to add to their squad in the January transfer window but they failed to make any signings until January, with Roberto Donadoni stepping down as president in April to take over as head coach.
Juvie had also been looking to make an additional signing in January for a number at the club, with Lazio reportedly keen to sign defender Federico Bernardeschi.
