Agent opens the door for Chelsea FC to sign La Liga defender
Stefan Savic's agent opens the door to a potential move to Chelsea FC or Juventus this summer
Stefan Savic is good enough to play for one of the Premier League’s top four team, according to his agent.
The Atletico Madrid defender has been linked with a potential move to Premier League side Chelsea FC and Serie A giants Juventus in the 2018 summer transfer window.
The Montenegro international has been linked with a potential exit at Atletico Madrid this summer after he started just 26 of their 38 games in La Liga last term.
Savic is a name that should be familiar to Chelsea FC supporters after the 27-year-old struggled to make the breakthrough at Manchester City under Roberto Mancini.
Chelsea FC are in the market to sign a defender to become a long-term replacement for captain Gary Cahill and Brazil international David Luiz at Stamford Bridge.
Savic’s agent Zarko Pelicic is adamant that the Atletico defender is good enough to play for any top four club in Europe’s biggest leagues ahead of a potential summer transfer.
“Stefan is a player who is always very interesting. He has top quality, he can play for any of the top four teams in the best leagues,” Pelicic told TuttoJuve, as quoted by Calciomercato.
“Juventus? I can’t name names, everything goes through the club. He’s currently an Atletico Madrid player, we’ll evaluate what’s best for the club and the lad.”
Chelsea FC finished in sixth spot in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a place in the Champions League for the second time in three seasons.
The Blues haven’t won the Champions League since 2012.
