La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Juventus are working on a contract extension for Turkish international Kenan Yildiz and plan to give him the number 10 shirt.
The iconic number has suffered a mixed legacy since Alessandro Del Piero’wore it, having been handed to Paul Pogba and Paulo Dybala in recent years. Now, Yildiz is set to potentially inherit this prestigious shirt number, marking a new chapter in the club’s history. According to La Gazzetta, 18-year-old Yildiz is already making a name for himself. With three goals to his name, including a remarkable performance against Salernitana and Frosinone in the Coppa Italia, he embodies the promise of a bright future for the Bianconeri. His aspiration to follow in the footsteps of his childhood idol, Alessandro Del Piero, speaks volumes about his ambitions both on and off the pitch. Juventus are reportedly considering extending his contract until 2029. His current contract expires in 2027. However, Yildiz’s rise raises questions about the future of another Juventus stalwart, Federico Chiesa. The choice is likely to complicate Federico Chiesa’s future. With his contract due to expire in 2025 and limited by physical problems, he could be sacrificed in the summer.
