On Monday, we covered claims made by Sport, explaining Barcelona’s chances of signing Matthijs de Ligt.
It was also reported both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have ‘launched’ themselves to take the Juventus star.
The Serie A side signed the centre-back from Ajax in 2019 and after spending three years in Turin, the 22-year-old could be allowed to leave at the end of the current season.
La Repubblica state Fiorentina star Dušan Vlahović will be the ‘star of the Italian market’.
Manchester City are in the picture, but the Old Lady are ahead of other suitors in the race to secure the striker’s services. That’s because Massimiliano Allegri’s side have an ‘understanding’ with the Serbia international.
Juventus will have to come up with a ‘strategy to find the necessary money’ to carry out a deal for Vlahović. A potential move for the La Viola frontman will ‘revolve around the sacrifice’ of De Ligt.
It’s said The Turin club are ‘ready to sell’ the Netherlands international for a fee between €60m and €85m. La Repubblica say ‘the match is between Bayern Munich and Chelsea’ to secure his signature.
The Blues have Antonio Rüdiger, César Azpilicueta, Andreas Christensen and Thiago Silva, and all four have their contracts expiring in 2022. Despite the situation with these players, Thomas Tuchel’s side are expected to get ahead of the German giants to win the race for De Ligt.
Juve’s intention is to collect at least €60m from the Dutchman’s sale and use it to fund Vlahović’s signing next summer.
