Due to sanctions imposed by the UK government on Chelsea boss Roman Abramovich and accusing him of being one of the oligarchs supporting Vladimir Putin’s government, the London club will suffer financially. With his financial movements blocked, Abramovich can no longer invest or profit from Chelsea, which makes the future quite doubtful. As such, some clubs are already looking at the movement in search of reinforcements.
Players such as Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta, considered key players in Thomas Tuchel’s squad, are not guaranteed for the next season. At the end of the contract, the athletes cannot renew due to a ban on Abramovich and are free to leave. However, even those with valid contracts are not guaranteed, which is the case with Jorginho, who has become a target for Juventus.
This Thursday (10), the Italian newspaper “La Gazzetta dello Sport” revealed that Juve managers are analyzing a possible investment in the player, who is the holder of the Italian national team and had a large participation in the Euro Cup title. Jorginho’s return to the Italian league, where he shone for Napoli, is currently being considered.
After a very difficult start, Juventus are looking for a recovery in the season. The team has not won the Italian Championship last season and is once again away from the Cup. Thus, the directors are aware that it will be necessary to reinvent Massimiliano Allegri’s team, which remembers some of the athletes who left and is also experiencing the end of the cycle of some important players. The main cases are Bonucci and Chiellini.
In this sense, it is important to seek reinforcements in the defensive system and Rudiger, also from Chelsea, becomes the main target to pair with Matthijs de Ligt. However, the German defender is also a target for Real Madrid, which promises to dispute his signing. Also based on information from the Italian press, Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyach, both also from Chelsea, are being monitored by Juventus.
In addition to the financial sanctions imposed on Roman Abramovich, Chelsea are also in a difficult position as their main sponsor, telecommunications company Three, asked the club to immediately withdraw its brand from shirts. Chelsea’s partner three from 2020 does not want to associate his name with the club at this time.
