GdS: Milan look set to be disappointed as Juventus close in on €60m deal for winger

By Oliver Fisher -

Juventus are closing in on the signing of Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa in an eye-watering deal, according to a report.

Chiesa is a name that continues to be linked as a potential dream signing to fully complete the squad for the season ahead after what has been a busy shortened summer window.

Wednesday’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanLive) claimed that Juve have only made unconvincing enquiries and that Milan are lurking in the background.

They stated that if Paolo Maldini has an opportunity, he will try to seize it. The idea is to try secure a deal with an operation similar to the Sandro Tonali one – a high paid loan with option to buy.

However, according to what is being reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Luca Calamai, Chiesa is getting closer and closer to Juve. At the weekend the deal can be closed for €60million payable over several years.
