With Juventus banned from participating in any European competition for the 2023/24 season, they can focus solely on domestic matters and that could include bringing Italy Men’s National Team goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma back to Serie A to help with their possible title challenge.

The 24-year-old former AC Milan star was linked with a move to the Bianconeri back in 2021, before joining Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent, and Sportitalia have reported (via Calciomercato) that the Turin giants have put the feelers out to determine whether the Italian could be available this summer.

Any move for Donnarumma, though, will depend on whether new PSG coach Luis Enrique sees him as a long-term first-choice in the French capital and if Juventus can offload current No.1 Wojciech Szczesny two years before his current deal expires.

While Donnarumma‘s representative Enzo Raiola has denied reports of a rift between the young goalkeeper and his new coach in Paris, the ex-AS Roma and Spain Men’s National Team coach has a clear style of play and his goalkeepers have to be comfortable with the ball at their feet. Throughout Donnarumma‘s career to date, there have been doubts about his ability to play with his feet.

With a contract until 2026 and the undisputed Azzurri first-choice goalkeeper, though, Luis Enrique will give Donnarumma opportunities to convince him he can adapt to his style. Nevertheless, the Parisians are still considering Sevilla‘s Bono as a potential replacement and ex-Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea, the latter having played under Luis Enrique for Spain and is available on a free transfer after leaving the Red Devils this summer.

Will Wojciech Szczesny renew his Juventus contract?

A significant barrier to any Juventus move for Donnarumma remains Wojciech Szczesny, who has confirmed he intends to see out his current contract with the Bianconeri, which runs until June 30, 2025. But Juventus would be open to the 33-year-old leaving early if unwilling to sign an extension with the Turin club.

However, the Poland international would need a substantial offer to convince him to leave the Serie A giants and seems uninterested in a potential move to Bayern Munich and, in turn, allowing Yann Sommer to complete a move to Inter.

Szczesny knows he would join the German giants as an understudy to Manuel Neuer, and he wants guarantees of a first-team place at an elite-level club.
