Chelsea and Atletico Madrid eye Federico Bernardeschi transfer with Juventus star set to quit this summer

CHELSEA and Atletico Madrid are eyeing up a move for Juventus star Federico Bernardeschi, according to reports.

The 26-year-old was a regular in the 2019-20 season, helping Maurizio Sarri’s side to the Serie A title.

But with Sarri having now been sacked, Juve could cash in on the former Fiorentina attacker.

And according to Calciomercato, Juve are now hoping to cash in on the man they bought for £36million three years ago.

Initially they tried to offload him back to former club Fiorentina in exchange for Federico Chiesa.

But with La Viola refusing to budge, Juve will look to sell him outright.

Chelsea have been strengthening their attack in this off-season, with Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech having already arrived at Stamford Bridge.

And while they continue to negotiate for Kai Havertz, Bernardeschi could still be on their radar.

Having finished 17 points behind LaLiga winners Real Madrid, Atletico could also be in the market for him as they look to bridge that gap.

Either move would likely appeal to the player himself, with the report claiming that he is interested in a move abroad at this stage of his career.

The 24-cap Italian international has made 108 appearances for Juventus, including 38 in the 2019-20 season.

He managed just two goals and three assists, however, despite primarily being deployed to the right of Juve’s front three.
