Juventus renew interest in Ramires

Published 1 Comments

According to reports in Italy, Juventus are set to renew their interest in Chelsea midfielder Ramires and could launch a formal move at the end of the season.

The Old Lady were interested in signing the Brazilian during the January transfer window and were plotting a shock move halfway through the season before being told by Chelsea officials to wait until the summer.

First-Team Woes

The Blues were against selling the powerhouse midway through the season but with Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas as the midfield-duo, the West London outfit may choose to cash in on the recently-turned 28-year-old.

Ramires has struggled for first-team football at Stamford Bridge this season and could seek a move in the summer in order to play regular football, and with midfield concerns of their own, Juve may make a formal move.

Midfield Sales

The Serie A giants are worried that they may lose Paul Pogba and/or Arturo Vidal at the end of the season with several European giants interested in both midfield men.

Pogba is attracting interest all across Europe and with Chelsea one of the teams interested, officials at Juve may suggest a cash+player deal.

According to previous reports, Chelsea were set to offer Oscar as part of a deal to bring Pogba to The Bridge, but it seems Juve would prefer to have Ramires as they see him as a perfect replacement.

Marchisio Blow

Another concern for Juve is the recent injury blow to Claudio Marchisio.

The Italian suffered a cruciate anterior ligament injury during training with his international team and is set to be sidelined until late 2015.

So with three concerns for Juventus in the centre of the park, officials at the club are desperate to cover their backs and will try and bring at least one in during the summer break.

Summer Deal

Whether Juve tempt Chelsea by offering a player+cash deal involving Pogba is yet to be seen, but with fears over the Frenchman's future, The Old Lady will be keen on cashing in when they can for the powerhouse.

A rumoured fee for Pogba is around £75million and it's believed Juve would then reinvest that into the squad with a centre-midfielder and a striker high on their list.

As reported earlier this week, Carlos Tevez has agreed to leave the club at the end of the season, so a new striker will be signed by the Serie A champions.
