Juventus chief arrives in London to thrash out transfers for Man Utd star Paul Pogba and Chelsea ace Jorginho

    JUVENTUS chief Federico Cherubini has reportedly arrived in London as he looks to secure a deal for Chelsea’s Jorginho.

    The Italian giants appear to have won the race to sign Manchester United’s Paul Pogba on a free transfer when the Frenchman’s contract expires next month.

    And the 29-year-old could be lining-up alongside Jorginho when he returns to Turin next term.

    Todd Boehly’s consortium hope to complete their takeover of Chelsea by the end of the month, which will finally allow them to get back in the game transfer wise.

    However, a big-name departure could be the first topic of conversation, according to Gazzetta dello Sport.

     They state that Juventus have made Italy international midfielder Jorginho, 30, one of their top targets and have now begun their attempt to get him.

    The report states that their sporting director Cherubini has arrived in London and “will hold talks with representatives of Chelsea in the coming days” in order to “discuss the possibility of doing a deal once sanctions have been lifted” have been lifted on the Blues.

    And they claim that the Stamford Bridge club have not rebuffed the transfer talks, suggesting they could be open to selling.

    Jorginho only has a year remaining on his contract and Chelsea will be desperate not to lose another star for nothing following Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen’s departures.

    Juve are yet to agree a fee with Chelsea for Jorginho, but Gazzetta say discussions with the player over personal terms “reached an advanced stage” already.

    Juventus have reportedly offered Pogba £120,000-a-week wages to rejoin them this summer, although some sources say the ace wants more.

    The midfielder spent four years in Turin between 2012 and 2016, winning four titles and two Italian Cups.

    And fallen giants Juve, guaranteed to finish fourth on Saturday, want Pogba 2.0 to resurrect their Serie A ambitions next term.
