Juventus and Chelsea Mulling January Midfield Swap

Juventus and Chelsea put a deal for Denis Zakaria on deadline day and could do more business together in the same role in January. The Swiss midfielder soon lost his fortune, mainly due to the ousting of Thomas Tuchel, Gazzetta dello sport pass.

The 25-year-old moved on to a €3m loan, with the Blues covering his salary. The Bianconeri He didn’t have much hope that his €28m option to buy would be activated, but they were content to save on his salary and eventually get an extra €1m.

The two teams will discuss Zakaria’s early return in the next few weeks, and Juventus will propose Adrien Rabiot to join Chelsea. Although it’s a staple, it’s been on sale since his contract expired at the end of the season. The next window will be the last chance to cash in on the Frenchman. His role will be less important once Paul Pogba returns.

According to the publication, the Blues have some interest in the ex-Paris Saint-Germain man. He is keen on a move to the Premier League, but dealing with his camp is no easy feat. The old lady has not yet decided on his extension, which may depend on Massimiliano Allegri remaining at the helm. They certainly cannot match the €10m a year he requested from Manchester United.

The Bianconeri They should not have emptied Zacharias in the summer, because they then had deep problems. The trade-off makes sense for them both financially and technically, especially if Pogba shows up well. It remains to be seen if Chelsea like Rabiot and whether they will accept the January move rather than pick their next destination alone in the summer.
