Chelsea Starting to Put Serious Pressure on Juventus

Chelsea and Juventus have been in constant communication concerning the Romelu Lukaku deal. The Blues want the saga to end, one way or the other, sooner rather than later. The Bianconeri have orchestrated the transfer with the parties. However, there has been no progress concerning the sale of Dusan Vlahovic.

According to Alfredo Pedullà, the Belgian refused multiple offers from Al-Hilal. He’s convinced the Old Lady will sign him. Coach Massimiliano Allegri is the biggest proponent of the acquisition. He considers the Belgian an excellent fit for his playing style.

Chelsea asked Juventus to accelerate for Lukaku. The patience of the Blues is starting to wear thin. The striker might start weighing other destinations soon as well.

Vlahovic has been linked to PSG and Bayern Munich in previous weeks. However, those sides seem to prefer different options. The Serb has been limited in practice because of groin issues throughout the summer.

Our Take on Juventus, Chelsea, and Lukaku

It’d be quite ironic that, after all the fuss, the deal didn’t go through because of the prospective buyers this time. There’s very little traction regarding the departure of Vlahovic. Since the benefits would be more economic rather than technical, the Bianconeri execs wouldn’t pull their hair out if the switch ultimately didn’t happen. But then they’d have to find a way to make the marksman and Allegri click afterward.
