The troubled 20-year-old was back in the headlines yesterday with reports he had been arrested by Dutch police in Utrecht for making threats.
De Telegraaf received a statement today from Ihattaren’s lawyer, confirming that he has now been released and the investigation was related to an incident that happened some time ago.
The lawyer insists the player “will return to Juventus as soon as possible to resume training.”
Juve paid almost €2m to sign the talent from PSV Eindhoven in August 2021, but it was all downhill from there.
He was loaned to Sampdoria, who claim they barely saw him at the training ground and he escaped back to Utrecht without permission.
So Juve moved the loan over to Ajax in January 2022, but the situation did not improve there either, despite Wesley Sneijder trying to take the player under his wing.
There continue to be reports he associates with criminal elements in Holland and the threats stemmed from his relationship with a young woman.
In theory, he is meant to be back in Turin for training with Juventus until a decision can be made on his future.
The lawyer also told De Telegraaf that while Ihattaren has been through an “eventful period” in his life, he has in recent weeks “found his way back.”
