The Poland international will return to the Serie A as he had been playing previously for SSC Napoli from 2016 to 2021. Then afterwards he scored 30 goals in 55 matches for Marseille once making the transition to the Ligue 1.
Juventus guaranteed Milik a salary of 3.5 million euros per year to lock in the transfer. Despite this, Juventus’ first choice had reportedly been Dutchman Memphis Depay from FC Barcelona.
The club was in advanced negotiations with the Barca attacker, but ultimately failed to find an agreement – finally opting for the Pole, which was Juve’s second option this summer transfer window.
