Emre Can Provides Update on His Future After Being Frozen Out of Juventus Squad

Juventus midfielder Emre Can has again put clubs on red alert after reiterating his desire to move away from Turin in January.

The wantaway star only moved from Liverpool to Italy 18 months ago but has struggled to nail down a place in Juve’s starting XI under new boss Maurizio Sarri.

Can has only accumulated a total of 170 minutes for the Bianconeri in Serie A this season, and his lack of playing time has not gone unnoticed amongst Europe’s elite.

​Barcelona, PSG and Manchester United are ​​​​all reported suitors of Can and are monitoring developments closely. 

And, speaking to ​German outlet Bild, the former ​Liverpool star has further fuelled speculation of a move by stating that he is unhappy at the Italian giants. 

“I’m not happy with the situation in Turin, and it has to change somehow. We have to find a solution,” he said.

With only one league start to his name this campaign, it is looking increasingly likely that the German’s future lies elsewhere.

It has been reported that the 25-year-old has a ​€50m release clause in his current contract but even those at Juve aren’t holding out for that amount.

It’s more likely that the fee commanded for Can will be nearer the €30m mark and Bild believes ​Borussia Dortmund are lining up a double swoop in January. 

It’s speculated that Croatian striker Mario Mandzukic is also on Lucien Favre’s radar and as for Can, he is not ruling a return to Germany.

“I think you should never say never,” he said when posed the question of moving back to the Bundesliga.


Can’s last jaunt in Germany saw him secure a move to the ​Premier League after playing 39 times and scoring four goals for Bayer Leverkusen in the 2014/15 season.

His performances proved enough to catch the eye of then Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers who activated Can’s €12m release clause to bring him to Merseyside.
