Juventus chef Giuntoli: Chelsea made offer for Vlahovic

Juventus sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli admits Chelsea made an attempt for Dusan Vlahovic over the summer.

Giuntoli says Chelsea made a cash offer for the centre-forward.

"There was an offer from Chelsea for Vlahovic," Giuntoli told La Repubblica. "We didn't want to sell Dusan, but given certain numbers we would have accepted. Chelsea never reached that figure and the exchange [with Romelu Lukaku] never took place

"As for scouting, I found great professionalism here. Today in football everyone knows everything, it's difficult to beat others to the punch and do business at low costs.

"At Napoli I noticed some coincidences, without the war I wouldn't have bought Kvara at that price, without the stoppage due to the pandemic perhaps Osimhen would have scored 30 goals in France and would have ended up in the Premier League."
