Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are raising a glass in celebration after they were handed a vast transfer boost by a solid source.
Italian outlet GianlucaDiMarzio quote the Roma president James Palotta as admitting the club are powerless to stop the likes of Miralim Pjanic and Radja Nainggolan, if their release clauses are met by interested clubs.
Chelsea have been heavily linked with the player’s services and with Antonio Conte set to raid the Serie A this summer, it’s widely expected that the Blues will make a move for Pjanic to bolster their midfield ranks.
Whilst Roma do not want to lose their star player’s this summer, Palotta’s comments may open a door for the Premier League outfit to make a swoop.
‘I will tell you Nainggolan is not going anywhere and neither is Pjanic, but if someone is to pay the release clause there is not anything we can do,’
Our landlord believes Roma have no choice but to accept offers for Pjanic this summer and that Chelsea are in the driving seat for his services.
Chelsea fans, would Pjanic be a good purchase? Let us know in the comments below!
