Dusan Vlahovic returned to the Juventus starting lineup for the Serie A Matchday 13 Derby d’Italia and highlighted his importance with the opening goal against Inter, and a contract extension could see him remain in Turin until 2028.

Bianconeri coach Massimiliano Allegri has turned to Moise Kean to lead the attack while the Serbia striker has been recovering from injury, but the Italian is yet to net a Serie A goal this term. Therefore, if the Old Lady are to be legitimate challengers for the Scudetto, goals from a fit Vlahovic will be vital.

With several first-team players in talks over contract renewals, La Gazzetta dello Sport report that, while both parties are keen to find an agreement, they will meet again in December once they have allocated more of their long-term budget.

Vlahovic Juventus contract: How long do Juve want him to sign for?

The deal Vlahovic initially signed on his arrival from Fiorentina does not expire until 30 June 2026, and even included a salary increase last summer from €7.5m-a-year to €12.5m-a-year, but the desire of the club to extend is to spread the €75m transfer fee across a longer time period.

As it stands, the striker is costing the Bianconeri €18.6m per season from their budget allocations, and if they can tie Vlahovic down for an additional 12 months, that would become €14m. Better still, if the 23-year-old stays until the end of the 2027/28 campaign, it reduces to €11m.

Will Vlahovic sign a contract renewal with Juventus?

Although Vlahovic looked destined for the exit door during the Bianconeri’s pursuit of Romelu Lukaku during the summer and their financial difficulties in the aftermath of capital gains punishment, the young striker reiterated his desire to remain in Turin and attempt to fire them back to former glories.

Juventus‘ decision to offer an extension now reinforces their desire to have the Serbia international spearhead current and future challenges for silverware. However, whether he signs on for another year or two, they are expected to insist upon a release clause.

The only issue that could scupper plans to have the deal signed and sealed before the end of the campaign is an agreement on bonuses within the contract clauses.
