For the black and white number 9, the main axis remains the one with Chelsea to get to the exchange but the Germans could put 80 million on the table which would convince Juve
Dusan Vlahovic, Romelu Lukaku, Chelsea and Bayern Munich. The Juventus transfer market enters the crucial phase, with the latest news and rumors revolving around the number 9 shirt. The name of Dusan Vlahovic remains the pivot of the negotiations, with consequences for any new arrivals in black and white. The main axis remains the one with Chelsea to get to the exchange with Romelu Lukaku.
The key element, in addition to the will of the players, is represented by the balance that the London club should add to get to the white smoke. Both companies have to deal with their respective balance sheets. Also for this reason, Juve would seem determined to ask for an adjustment of 40 million in addition to the 30-year-old Lukaku’s price tag. At the moment, based on the news filtering through, Chelsea would not have come close to the requested amount.
In the background, Bayern Munich reappears. The German club, given the difficulties of snatching Harry Kane from Tottenham – which does not release the number 9 for 100 million – has returned to considering the Vlahovic track. In this case, the Germans could put 80 million on the table which would convince Juve and give the Old Lady the resources to conclude the Lukaku deal without compensation. However, news is bouncing from Germany relating to a more articulated offer from Bayern: money and the signing of Leon Goretzka, a midfielder who would complement an already crowded Juventus department.
