Juventus are set to scrap new deals for outgoing duo Paulo Dybala and Federico Bernardeschi to fund a summer move for Jorginho, according to reports.
Dybala and Bernardeschi are both out of contract in Turin at the end of June, meaning they are just over three months away from leaving Juve on free transfers.
The Italian giants initially wanted to tie them down with extensions, but Bernardeschi reportedly recently snubbed an offer worth £2m (€2.5m) a year, while Dybala’s demands for £6m pounds (7 million euros) have so far proved a stumbling block. to block.

And according to SportMediasetJuve are now ready to let the pair go this summer and pour the money into a deal for Jorginho.
The Chelsea midfielder, who finished third in the Ballon d’Or table last year after winning the Champions League and Euro 2020 with Italy, is set to enter the final year of his contract at Stamford Bridge in July.
He was open to returning to Serie A next year, having swapped Napoli for west London in 2018, but Jorginho is now ready to take advantage of Chelsea’s precarious financial situation and seal a move this summer.
The Blues are in a state of uncertainty at the moment after owner Roman Abramovich’s assets were frozen by the UK government, which placed them under a transfer embargo and prevented them from renewing contracts amid a host of other restrictions.

Jorginho dreams of a club like Juve replacing him and, according to Gazzetta dello Sportthe Old Lady has devised a savings strategy to ensure they can finance a move for him.
As well as allowing Dybala and Bernardeschi to leave, Adrien Rabiot and Aaron Ramsey are set to be offloaded in the summer transfer window, meaning the money saved will go towards a four-year contract offer for Jorginho.
The 30-year-old is the perfect signing for Massimiliano Allegri, who has finally convinced Juve chiefs to spend big on a player who can inherit the former deep midfield role of Andrea Pirlo and Miralem Pjanic.
Allegri’s 4-3-3 system will suit him on the pitch, especially with Italian team-mates Giorgio Chiellini and Leonardo Bonucci sitting behind him like on international duty.
Arthur Melo, who moved to Turin as part of the swap deal which saw Pjanic head to Barcelona, has so far been unconvincing as a midfield anchor, reportedly lacking the technical qualities and character to excel in the position.

Jorginho is ready to take on a new challenge after conquering Europe and the world at Stamford Bridge, but Abramovich’s sanction is currently preventing a transfer from materializing.
Juve manager Federico Cherubini is keen to hand the ex-Napoli star a four-year deal worth around £5m (€6m) a year which would see them to save £832,000 (€1m) over Dybala’s potential renewal.
Chelsea are ready to cash in on Jorginho while they still can, the player is keen to move on, Juve are desperate to sign him but for now it all hinges on replacing Abramovich as owner of the Blues.
Investment bank Raine Group is weighing offers from potential buyers after last Friday’s deadline, with consortia led by US tycoon Todd Boehly and British businessman Nick Candy leading the way.
But a move for Jorginho is currently stalled due to Britain’s Roman Abramovich sanction
