Sampdoria youngster Mohamed Amine Ihattaren reportedly considers retiring from football, as the mystery of the former PSV Eindhoven playmaker continues.

Juventus officially purchased Ihattaren from PSV over the summer and immediately loaned him out to Sampdoria in Serie A.

Ihattaren turned 19 in February and had already collected 74 competitive games with the Dutch side, while he has played at various youth levels with the Netherlands.

Juventus and Sampdoria lose sight of Ihattaren

The youngster, born and raised in the Netherlands with joint Moroccan citizenship, signed a contract with Juventus until June 2025.

Upon his arrival at Sampdoria, the midfielder said he was ‘happy’ to be in Liguria and wanted ‘to show everyone who Mohamed is’.

But the situation has evolved in recent months and the mystery continues as reports the 19-year-old is considering retiring from football.

The player effectively disappeared from the radar of both Sampdoria and Juventus when he left Genoa due to family problems.

He returned to Holland and reports rumours are emerging from his homeland.

The report claims local media suggests, due to a strong depression following the death of his father in 2019, the player is considering stopping.

Sampdoria and Juventus have not taken an official position, but are expected to soon communicate something about the ongoing story.

    Good choice young man. He was probably informed by Allegri that he would not see first team action until he is 36.
