As things stand it appears that all transfer activity in and out of Stamford Bridge is on-hold due to the uncertainty over the managerial situation, but one that’s making headlines today is that of Miralem Pjanic at Juventus.
Italian news source Corriere Dello Sport suggest that incoming manager Maurizio Sarri, who has extensive knowledge of the Italian top-flight will view a player like Cesc Fabregas as the ‘past’ while a player such as the 28-year old midfielder Miralem Pjanic as the ‘future’.
The Bosnian international has been an integral part of Juventus’s recent success in recent seasons, since signing from rivals Roma back in 2011. Pjanic has lifted the Serie A title twice as well as the Italian Cup twice during his stint in Turin.
Barcelona are also being linked to Miralem Pjanic and their pursuit of the Bosnian could be escalated after their long-standing target Antoine Griezmann opted to stay at Atletico Madrid instead – so no doubt Barcelona have money to burn and it’s only a matter of time before they start spending it.
If Chelsea or Barcelona are to be successful in getting Pjanic out of serial title winners Juventus in this summer’s transfer window they will have to likely stump up at least £70 million in order to do so.
The Daily Star picked up on a Tweet by the former Juventus CEO Luciano Moggi who also added fire to the transfer link by posting the following:
