BUCHAREST, Aug 6 (Reuters) - The proposed loan transfer of Romanian striker Adrian Mutu from Chelsea to Juventus has fallen through because the clubs failed to agree terms, the player's agent said on Friday.

Mutu and his agent Giovanni Becali travelled to Turin on Thursday after Chelsea had agreed a one-year loan with the Italian giants but the deal then broke down.

'Chelsea asked to have the first option for a possible transfer of Mutu in the future but Juventus officials rejected the proposal,' Becali told Reuters on Friday by telephone from Turin.

Mutu will return to England to complete his five-year contract with Chelsea.

'Mutu is Chelsea's player for the next four years,' Becali said.
