Reports have been circulating that the likes of Liverpool, and Manchester United are among a host of top European clubs that are considering move for 20-year-old Fiorentina ace Federico Chiesa this summer.
However, the stumbling block in this transfer is the Serie A club’s £62m asking price for Chiesa which must be met.
Although, this might seem huge fee for an unproven player of his age, but it should be noted that Chiesa’s talent is one for the future.
As per report from Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport as translated by talkSPORT, it claimed the likes of Inter Milan, Manchester City and Napoli are also keen on signing the player.
Given Chiesa’s natural playing position is playing as an attacking winger, the midfielder has also be played at both flanks for La Viola, and has also been placed at wing-back, as well as a a central attacking midfield, and up front.
Players of Chiesa’s calibre are sort of quality Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho could do with, as the Portuguese boss targets players who can play wide.
In other news, Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale has been linked with a potential move to Old Trafford, with Don Balon reporting that the FA Cup runners-up are working on a deal to bring the former Tottenham Hotspur forward back to England.
But with reports from Spain claiming the Champions League back-to-back winners are standing at their £195m for Bale, sanctioning £62m for Bale shouldn’t be too expensive, so fans alike should be uplifted by this development if reported interest in the player is true and should forget about the club signing overpriced Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.
