Juventus criticized for choosing Angel di Maria over Dejan Kulusevski

Juventus have come under fire for selling Dejan Kulusevski in order to sign Argentine veteran Angel di Maria.

Crazy Ball – Juventus are in advanced talks to sign Angel Di Maria on a free transfer from PSG, but Bianconeri criticized for choosing the Argentine star over Dejan Kulusevski.

The Sweden international joined Tottenham Hptspur on loan with an obligation to buy in the January transfer window, with him joining Antonio Conte’s side alongside Rodrigo Bentancur, who is moving on a permanent deal.

The 22-year-old forward has proven to be on the rise in the Premier League, scoring five goals and eight assists in 18 appearances, compared to just one goal and three assists in 20 appearances for Juventus in Serie A in the first half of the season.

The Turin giants are now chasing a new winger and have made Angel Di Maria and Ivan Perisic their priority targets, with Federico Bernardeschi, Paulo Dybala and (presumably) Alvaro Morata leaving the club in June.

Editor in chief La Gazzetta dello Sport Stefano Agresti criticized Juventus’ decision by calling Dejan Kulusevski the biggest failure of Massimiliano Allegri. The Tuscan tactician was unable to get the best out of the former Atalanta and Parma starlets and even failed to identify the right role for the 22-year-old who has finally proved capable of thriving under Antonio Conte in North London.

Tottenham Hotspur have an obligation to change the loan agreement to permanent for IDR 547 billion at the end of 2022/2023 and pay IDR 156 billion for the player’s loan for 18 months. The Swedish striker has proven capable of forming a powerful attacking trio alongside Son Heung Min and Harry Kane.
