AC Milan are unlikely to sign Federico Chiesa from Fiorentina as things stand due to La Viola’s exorbitant requests, a report claims.
Sunday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) reported that Fiorentina have opened up to the sale of Federico Chiesa, who does not seem willing to renew his contract which expires in 2022. That is why the possibility of a discount on his previously mentioned price tag becomes concrete.
They claimed that €60million would be needed for Chiesa, but that the price tag could move closer to €40m towards the end of the window as Rocco Commisso realises that hanging onto assets that will only decrease in price (due to the contract situation) is dangerous.
Now, Calciomercato.com have offered their take on the situation, and it’s not good news for those fans who may have wanted to see Chiesa team up with Azzurri team-mates Tonali, Donnarumma and Romagnoli.
The outlet reports that Chiesa is unlikely to move to Milan in this transfer window. Paolo Maldini likes the forward, but there is no negotiation at present, as Fiorentina are asking for €60m.
