Juventus has instructed its lawyers to terminate the contract of former PSV talent Mohamed Ihattaren. The Dutch striker joined the Bianconeri from the Eredivisie team in August 2021 for around 1.9 million euros and was immediately loaned out to Sampdoria, where problems quickly arose. He failed to make a single appearance for the club and quickly returned to the Netherlands, forcing Juventus to sign a new loan deal with Ajax.
Ihattaren only made five appearances for Ajax before returning to Turin in late December. Since his return, he has often been seen both at the J-Hotel and on the club’s training ground, trying to get fit. The 21-year-old has been involved in various legal issues in recent years, disrupting his playing career. As reported by Romeo Agresti of Goal Italia, Juventus lawyers are working on the termination of Ihattaren’s contract, wanting to protect the club’s image. The Bianconeri have tried to support the 21-year-old Dutchman, despite his various off-field problems, but believe that he has now reached a point of no return professionally.
