Juventus set to make Lukaku-Vlahovic swap deal U-turn

August 5th, 2023 by Olasunkanmi Ibikunle

Juventus director Cristiano Giuntoli has reportedly delayed his trip to London because they are in a position of power compared to Chelsea in the valuation of Dusan Vlahovic and Romelu Lukaku.

Giuntoli had been due to fly out this week and it was not just to talk with Chelsea about the potential exchange deal between the two strikers.

It was also to discuss Timothy Castagne with Leicester City and possible Premier League interest in Federico Chiesa.

However, Calciomercato.com via Football Italia claim it is a power play for Giuntoli to remain in Italy for the time being.

Juventus are prepared to hand over Vlahovic in exchange for Lukaku and €35-40m, but so far Chelsea are only willing to add €20m to the Belgian.

As the talks drag on, the Bianconeri are increasingly wary at how unpopular this move would be with their fans, but also at the difficult situation that Chelsea are in with Lukaku.

If the swap deal were to collapse, Juve would be more than happy to keep hold of Vlahovic, whereas being stuck with Lukaku would be a problem for Chelsea.
