Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been handed the news they’ve all been fearing today, as it seems their former boss Jose Mourinho is looking to derail their transfer plans.
Mundo Deportivo states Mourinho will lead Manchester United into the hunt for Roma ace Miralim Pjanic, who has emerged as a top-target for Antonio Conte at Chelsea and has also caught Liverpool’s eye.
The 26-year-old has been widely tipped with an exit from Rome this season, with his side failing to lessen Juventus’ dominate grip on Italian football, with Conte keen to bring the Serie A star with him to the Premier League.
However, the emergence of Manchester United on the transfer market could prove problematic as, unlike Chelsea, the Red Devils can offer European football next season, although they will be absent from the Champions League once again.
Both United and Chelsea want to rejig their squad this summer with quality additions after a disappointing season and the midfield area will be crucial to both, which means our landlord is predicting a fierce battle for this man.
Which club should Pjanic join in the Premier League? Let us know in the comments below!
