 Chelsea’s English penalty is what affects the plan that Juventus wants to implement in the transfer market.

The government has frozen Abramovich’s assets in the UK, including Chelsea, due to his close relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Premier League giants have been banned from accepting any money. They can’t even sell a shirt until the end of the sanctions let alone transfer the players.

The penalty that Chelsea received not only affects the club but also affects Juventus’ transfer plan. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the Bianconeri have kept an eye on four Blues players: Jorginho, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic and Antonio Rudiger. The Italian player is the top transfer target of the Old Lady. Meanwhile, Ziyech and Pulisic are alternatives in case the Nicolo Zaniolo deal fails.

 Jorginho is a target for Juventus.

Of the four names mentioned above, only Rudiger is a special case when the German player’s contract expires at the end of the season. He will leave the Blues on June 30 and that is the opportunity for Juventus to approach.

In addition, none of them are allowed to leave Stamford Bridge if the sanctions are still in place, leading Juventus to turn to other targets. Currently, the sanctions are expected to end on May 31, but there is no guarantee that the UK Government will not extend them for a longer time.

The question now, which names will Juventus target to supplement the midfield after the tragedy of Chelsea? Jorginho is Europe’s leading “metronome” that will help Juventus control the ball better, which the club has not done well at the moment. The kind of holding midfielder like Jorginho is extremely rare, leading to the Bianconeri’s stalemate in the transfer market.

 Chelsea penalty prevents Juventus from approaching Jorginho.

With Ziyech and Pulisic, Juventus is considering a move to part with Paulo Dybala and intends to push Moise Kean away on loan. With the uncertain purchase of Zaniolo and no chance to recruit Ziyech and Pulisic, the Juventus team will have to continue the scouting process to find other satisfactory names for the attack.

Chelsea’s penalty but unintentionally affects the shopping strategy at Juventus. The situation of the Old Lady is completely different from Barca, the club also buys Chelsea people but is in a more favorable situation.
