Francesco Calvo, chief football officer at Juventus, has said that the club would not sell striker Dusan Vlahovic, who has been courted by Premier League powerhouses Chelsea and Manchester United.
Vlahovic has scored an astounding 23 times in 63 games for the Old Lady, and he has scored 13 times in 21 games for the Serbian national team. Metro reports that Chelsea will offer £70 million for the striker.
Vlahovic allegedly wants to leave Juventus after having trouble maintaining his best form since joining the club in January 2022.

Both Chelsea and Manchester United are keen in acquiring the services of the 23-year-old striker. Erik ten Hag, the coach, is looking to bolster his team’s scoring possibilities.

However, Juventus’ staunch attitude may impede both teams’ hopes to add a new star to their ranks. Francesco Calvo, the club’s chief football officer, spoke with DAZN and insisted that the striker would continue in Turin despite the club’s financial difficulties (via Metro).
After a dismal year from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Chelsea is on the hunt for a new No. 9. Romelu Lukaku has been on loan at Inter Milan, and although he is due to return, rumours suggest that he and Inter Milan have already agreed to split ways.
Since Cristiano Ronaldo left Manchester United in the middle of the season, the club has depended largely on loanee Wout Weghorst to score goals. However, the tall striker has had little success in front of goal, thus far.
Both teams are quite interested in Napoli attacker Victor Osimhen, which is an interesting twist. There have been rumblings around Old Trafford that Erik ten Hag would want to sign Tottenham’s Harry Kane and bring him to the Theatre of Dreams.
