Report: Battle between Milan and Juventus for Chiesa as asking price is slashed from €70m

By Oliver Fisher -

Federico Chiesa may be allowed to leave Fiorentina this summer with his agent Fali Ramadani having held talks with Milan, a report claims.

The Rossoneri were linked with a move for the 22-year-old forward a few weeks ago but things seemed to go quiet as the management appeared to focus on the midfield trio Tiemoue Bakayoko, Sandro Tonali and Brahim Diaz.

According to ViolaNews, it seems difficult for anyone to meet the €70m asking price that president Rocco Commisso has set, but also La Viola know they will struggle to get €60m cash, so €50m plus bonuses or some kind of deal involving counterparts could unlock the situation.

Intermediary Fali Ramadani – who has long been close to the Chiesa family – has resumed talks with Juventus, who must first sell Aaron Ramsey and Douglas Costa.

The Bianconeri are thinking of a two-year loan with an obligation to buy or the inclusion of one or two players yet to be identified, but this idea does not convince Fiorentina. Eventually we will talk about it again. In fact, contacts in recent weeks have been indirect.

In recent days Milan asked Ramadani for information during a summit at the Hotel Me in Milan. Stefano Pioli is the main advocate for Chiesa’s arrival as the pair have worked together before, and talks with Ramadani are frequent regarding Milenkovic, Paquetá and Pezzella.

Juve remains vigilant, but Milan are moving in the shadows. The report concludes by claiming the player does not want to move abroad, so it will be a battle between Milan and Juventus.
