Chelsea have reportedly been offered the transfer of Juventus attacking midfielder Miralem Pjanic this summer as they face potential Financial Fair Play issues.
The Italian giants have splashed out on the signing of Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid ahead of the new season, and could perhaps be under pressure to offload some of their highest earners as a result.
As a result, Chelsea have been offered Pjanic as an option as the Blues come calling for Gonzalo Higuain and Daniele Rugani, with Juventus not keen on selling the latter, according to the Daily Mail.
Pjanic has shone as one of Serie A’s finest creative players in recent times and could be ideal as a long-term replacement for Cesc Fabregas at Stamford Bridge.
While the Spaniard has remained a key member of the first-team in the last couple of seasons, he is certainly past his peak now and midfield is an area of weakness for CFC.
The club invested a lot in midfielders last season, signing Tiemoue Bakayoko and Danny Drinkwater in the summer and then Ross Barkley in January, though none have impressed in west London.
Pjanic would undoubtedly be a major upgrade and Chelsea must pounce on this opportunity to snap him up as the Mail claim he’s on offer to them from Juve.
