Emre Can has promised to join Juventus for free next summer.
Emre Can, who is in the last year of his contract at Anfield, has rejected extension offers from Liverpool. But if that wasn’t a worrying sign for Liverpool fans, latest reports by Gazzetta dello Sport might trigger a panic among the fanbase.
Can has played a key role for Liverpool from midfield over the last years, and Jurgen Klopp would definitely not like to see him leaving for free. When quizzed about Can’s contract situation, Klopp said: ” Not perfect. So far there is no signing and that is the situation.”
The German coach continued: “We are still in talks. Do I think it is too cool that we didn’t fix it so far? No, to be honest. But it is all okay at the moment and we have to take it like this. His mind is not elsewhere. It is an important contract for him at his age.”
Liverpool fans will be gutted to see Can leave for free next season, especially after the talks of Coutinho being unsettled at Anfield. Juventus, on the other hand, will be very pleased to get Can for free next year. The Italian club has recruited some of the best talents for free over the years.
