World Cup hero has decided on a new club

Alexis Mac Allister

The Argentine with the Scottish-sounding name Alexis Mac Allister has done his job at Brighton in recent seasons, but has steered clear of the biggest headlines. But that was before the World Cup finals.

The big breakthrough for Brighton’s midfield struggles came in Qatar, where the 24-year-old with the cool name showed he holds an international level high enough to be one of the key players behind the World Cup title. The central midfielder missed just one game in the World Cup play-offs. There was a goal against Poland, an assist in the final against France. Unsurprisingly, Mac Allister has been linked with a transfer, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport it has already been decided

The Italian media claim that Mac Allister has agreed to a transfer to Juventus, now there is an argument about the transfer fee, where Brighton believe they are entitled to around 40 million euro.

With the contract only expiring in 2025 and an option for further years, Brighton have good cards in the negotiations. Whether Juventus are in a position to carry out a Mac Allister transfer in the mildly chaotic situation at the club is another question. The Italian media claim Juventus are pushing for the sale of Weston McKennie to raise funds, with Adrien Rabiot on his way out this summer, there will also be plenty of room for a Mac Allister at The Old Lady.
