Former Chelsea boss ready to scupper Conte’s £31m move for attacking star, Euro giants very keen on deal

Pjanic

Caro Ancelotti is a hugely popular figure amongst the Chelsea supporting locals who frequent the Transfer Tavern in their droves, though the love the Italian still enjoys in West London could soon come to an end.

That’s because, according to German outlet TZthe incoming Bayern Munich coach is looking to make a last ditch attempt to land Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanic from under the Blues’ nose.

The talented Bosnian attacking midfielder was touted as one of the first major targets Antonio Conte had identified as he prepares to takeover at Stamford Bridge this summer.

It was thought the club were ready to meet his £31m buyout clause in order to bring him from the Italian capital to the English counterpart.

However, Ancelotti has reportedly made the 26-year old a top target of his as he looks to craft a side in his own image when he touches down in Bavaria over the next few months.

With nine goals and 10 assists in Serie A this season, Pjanic is emerging as one of the most creative outlets on the continent.

Though the Allianz Arena is packed to the rafters with wonderful attacking talent, their new boss is thought to be hugely keen on moving for the Bosnia star.

How big a miss would Pjanic be for the Blues?
