Sky: Juventus the only viable option for Fiorentina star Chiesa as Milan’s stance is outlined

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have never entered official talks with Fiorentina over winger Federico Chiesa due to his asking price, a report claims.

The Rossoneri have had a busy summer so far to say the market has almost three weeks still to run, with a new deal secured for Zlatan Ibrahimovic and the permanent arrival of Ante Rebic also confirmed.

Meanwhile, Brahim Diaz has joined on loan from Real Madrid and Sandro Tonali completed a move from Brescia, as did Ciprian Tatarusanu from Lyon, with Jens Petter Hauge on the way from Bodo/Glimt.

However, Chiesa is a name that continues to be linked as a potential dream signing to fully complete the squad for the season ahead.

Gianluca Di Marzio in his latest for Sky (via MilanLive) has attempted to pour cold water on the Milan links though by claiming that the Rossoneri have never even asked for information about the 22-year-old.

He adds that Juventus are the only viable option for the transfer of Chiesa because Milan consider Fiorentina’s €60m valuation to be far too much.

In addition, Milan believe that with the arrival of Hauge, they have found the right man for the right wing and he will battle with Saelemaekers and Castillejo. Pioli liked Chiesa, but the budgetary requirements prevented the management from opening any kind of conversation with Fiorentina.
