Chelsea midfielder Mario Pašalić has been in good form for Atalanta this season, contributing 7 goals and 7 assists in 32 games over the course of the season.
Pasalic is in the second year of his two-year loan spell with Atalanta, and the Italian side were keen to trigger his buyback clause of €15m.
Meanwhile, according to report from Il Giorno, despite Atalanta’s purchase option for Pašalić being as low as €15m, they are still looking to negotiate down the price.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, clubs have been hit financially, and Atalanta won’t be expecting to spend that amount of money on Pasalic.
However, it doesn’t look like Chelsea will be willing to sell Pasalic for any less.
Following Pasasic’s impressive performance in Atalanta’s 4-1 Champions League victory over Valencia, Chelsea fans believe the club is making a mistake by selling Pasasic for €15m.
Pasasic provided two assists in Atalanta’s 4-1 victory over Valencia and he won the hearts of Chelsea fans after that performance.
