- Miralem Pjanic has been offered to Chelsea as part of the deal for Jorginho
- Juve have been hit with serious financial crisis due to coronavirus
- Pjanic has also been linked with a possible move to Barcelona or PSG
Miralem Pjanic has been offered to Chelsea as part of Juventus’ planned swap deal for sensational Brazilian midfielder Jorginho, according to latest reports on SunSport.
Pjanic has been heavily linked with a move to La Liga giants Barcelona and Ligue 1 side PSG, but it was gathered that Maurizio Sarri’s influence is likely to ensure the player completes a swap deal to Chelsea.

Juventus have been hit with financial crisis following the coronavirus outbreak which has distorted every activity on the planet.
Despite being a first-team star the 30-year-old is believed to be willing to leave the Allianz Stadium for a new challenge.
The midfielder has already been suggested as a potential makeweight in a deal for Manchester United’s Paul Pogba, while a swap deal with Barcelona has also been tipped.
At Juve, Portuguese football star Cristiano Ronaldo has been reportedly exempted from taking salary pay-cut at Italian giants Juventus which means his £522,000-a-week take home is still intact.

Also, the club will not be signing any player whose weekly income will be more than £151,000-a-week as from next season. According to the report by Corriere di Torino, the Old Lady chiefs have made this decision so as for them to protect their financial solidity.

Gonzalo Higuain, Andrien Rabiot, Aaron Ramsey and Paulo Dybala are the other players whose money will not be affected by the changes coming.
Juventus' recent cap is now expected to affect their desire to re-sign Frenchman Paul Pogba from Manchester United as he earns £290,000 a week at Old Trafford.
However, Legit.ng earlier reported that Chelsea will reportedly make a move for West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice should they lose N'Golo Kante this summer.
Kante is being tracked by Real Madrid who are keen to snap up the Frenchman from Stamford Bridge as they look to add more depth in the midfield.
