Massimiliano Allegri said he will make peace with Juventus’ decision to bring in Romelu Lukaku for Dusan Vlahovic.
- Allegri will adapt to Juventus’ transfer decision
- Lukaku-Vlahovic swap deal a possibility
- Valhovic’s departure will be due to financial needs
WHAT HAPPENED? Juventus coach Allegri is open to the idea of the club signing Lukaku from Chelsea in a swap deal that will see Vlahovic go the other way. The Italian coach suggested that if Juventus go ahead with the deal, it will be due to the club’s financial needs.
WHAT THEY SAID: Speaking to reporters, Allegri said: “I’m happy with the squad I have available, but in the face of offers that cannot be renounced due to economic and financial needs, they will be evaluated. And I will adapt as I always have.”
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Chelsea are desperate to offload Lukaku this summer and are ready to take a financial hit over the Belgian striker. The Blues were initially willing to sell for €40 million (£34m/$43m) in an outright cash deal but the situation has now changed a little and they could let Lukaku leave and welcome Vlahovic from Juventus.
