Weston McKennie started playing football in 2004 for FC Phönix Otterbach in Germany. He debuted professionally in 2017, playing for FC Schalke 04 in the German Bundesliga.

In 2020, he joined Serie A side Juventus on a season-long loan, whose fee was €4.50 million ($4.7 million). The loan also had the option to make it permanent at the end of the season.

Indeed, he impressed Juventus at the end of his loan, forcing the Serie A giants to sign him on a permanent deal worth €18.5 million in 2021. He would later move on to Leeds United on loan from Juventus.

Weston McKennie signed a 4-year contract with Juventus on 1 July 2021 that entitled him to a salary of €3,210,000 or $3,339,411 annually.

After moving to Leeds United, it was revealed that he agreed to a salary of $4.5 million.

It is worth noting that Weston’s deal at Juventus will expire on 30 June 2025. That means the American soccer player can choose to return to Juventus after his loan spell with Leeds.

On the other hand, Weston can opt to move to Leeds on a permanent transfer, a deal that will cost approximately €34,000,000.

However, Juventus could make the loan permanent once his season at Serie A ended on 30 June 2021. Also, if McKennie met specific targets, the option to sign him permanently would automatically trigger.

Fortunately, it seemed as though McKennie achieved those targets. As a result, the deal to sign for Juventus FC was €18.5 million.

However, the amount could also increase by €7 million based on achieving specific targets, bringing the total transfer fee to €25.5 million.

However, Juventus FC exercised the option to buy McKennie for €18.5 million on 3 March 2021. Also, he would receive bonuses that amounted to €6.5 million. On 1 July 2021, McKennie signed for Juventus FC on a four-year contract.

He would later move to Leeds on loan for the 2022/2023 season with an option for a permanent transfer, which will cost about €34million.
