Juventus Keeping Tabs On Willian’s Chelsea Contract




The Bianconeri’s are keeping an eye on the star’s contract situation at Chelsea, with a view to landing the Brazilian on a free transfer. This however seems very unlikely as reports claim that the player wants to remain at the London club. The Juve boss Maurizio Sarri knows all about the talented midfielder following his short stay at the bridge and it is no surprise that speculation has emerged linking the pair with a reunion.

On the other hand Manchester United are also keeping tabs on Juventus outcast Mario Mandzukic. The Red Devils spoke with the 33-year-old’s advisers earlier this summer his salary demands of £300,000-per-week, there is chance that Manchester outfit may be able to secure his services as his club still desperate to ship him out to create room for fresh legs.

The Manchester giants have been kept on high alert by the Qatari side Al-Rayyan who are looking to engage the services of the striker. Old Trafford boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is not giving up without a fight as he hope sto push again for the forwards signature.

The wealthy Middle Eastern outfit are only willing to pay the Croatian international an annual salary of £7.2m a year – £150,000-per-week which is an amount Manchester United can match considering their failed attempt to sign him in the transfer window.

While Willian is due to fall out of contract next summer and so far a new deal with the Stamford Bridge outfit has yet to be agreed. That could leave the door open for Juve to swoop.

The Old Lady would be free to talk to Willian in January if he has not put pen-to-paper, and they would fancy their chances of luring him to the Allianz Stadium.

Juve are now seen as one of the major powers in European football after snapping up Cristiano Ronaldo and Matthijs De Ligt, and Willian, just like Ramsey and co, would no doubt jump at the chance of a move if it presented itself.

The playmaker’s future at Chelsea has been shrouded in doubt for some time, and there is a chance he will run down his contract and look to leave on a free transfer.

He is now 31 years of age and could see this as the last chance to get one last big move and the opportunity to play in Serie A.
