Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso has reiterated that he would sell winger Federico Chiesa if the right offer came in.
Despite the fact Milan already have Samu Castillejo and Alexis Saelemaekers to fill the right wing spot – plus the arrival of the versatile Brahim Diaz from Real Madrid – the Rossoneri continue to be linked with a move for Chiesa as a possible ‘finishing piece’ for the 2020 summer market.
However, all major media outlets have reported that Fiorentina have set a high asking price from anywhere between €60-80m for the 22-year-old Italy international, which is a figure Milan cannot afford to shell out.
Instead, counterparts and creative formulas would have to be used, plus the hope of a drop in price.
Fiorentina owner and president Rocco Commisso spoke during an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport about the future of La Viola’s prized young asset and appeared to suggest that there will be no discounts offered, though he could be sold.
“In the next few days I will speak with the boy. I promised his father I would let him leave in the face of the right offer,” he said (via fanpage.it).
“Federico preferred not to take into consideration some requests that had arrived from abroad. I understand, this is the year of the European Championships. He wants to do well in Italy to convince coach Mancini.
“But he must remember that it is Fiorentina that brought him where he is now. And that he has to do the right things. The evaluation of players has dropped, but I say that that of the great players has not fallen.”
