Fiorentina have opened up to the sale of Federico Chiesa but at the moment it appears no Italian team can afford him, a report claims.
According to Monday’s edition of Corriere Fiorentino (via FirenzeViola), Chiesa was promised to Juventus already in the summer of 2019, but the deal was blocked by Rocco Commisso.
The player now wants to leave and will not sign a renewal, but also he does not want to move abroad and has rejected an offer from Manchester United, who put in a €50m bid.
No club in Italy are able to spend the required amount to sign the 22-year-old, and La Viola are not willing to wait for the last 24/48 hours of the market where they would run the risk of having to replace him very quickly.
That’s why a deadline has been set for Friday, Saturday at the latest, for Chiesa’s potential departure. Juve have remained in the running and plan to offer a €10m loan with an obligation to buy at €40m plus bonuses.
Milan continue to be linked, but they require sales or a very creative formula to be able to land the Italy international.
