Two days ago, Calciomercato stated Juventus had no intention of selling Federico Chiesa, after Chelsea reportedly showed willingness to make a ‘monster offer’ of €100m in the summer.
TuttoMercatoWeb journalist Enzo Bucchioni now talks about the possibility of the Old Lady receiving a ‘super offer’ from the Blues for the 24-year-old.
The Blues watched him closely when they faced the Turin club twice in the Champions League this season, with Chiesa scoring in the 1-0 win in Italy. His performances have ‘removed the last doubts’ and Thomas Tuchel has given his approval to carry out the operation, which was ‘officially started through intermediaries’.
The Serie A side took the winger on a two-year loan deal from Fiorentina in 2020, with a mandatory option to make his stay permanent. The deal will cost around €50m and if Chelsea were to make an offer of around €100m, it would be ‘very tempting’ for Juve from the economic point of view.
Chiesa ‘doesn’t seem to be in complete harmony’ with Massimiliano Allegri and therefore, if there is an offer from the Champions League winners, it could interest him.
Juve plan to raise funds by offloading some of their players, although at the same time it will weaken their squad if they don’t replace them accordingly.
In order to make ‘super capital gains’, sacrificing the Italy international could be tempting for Juve. Bucchioni states it would be easier for the Old Lady to find another player with a profile similar to that of Chiesa.
Juventus’ priority is to sign Dušan Vlahović. Taking their finances into account, the journalist explains it will easier for the Serie A giants to sign the striker from Fiorentina in the summer than the winter market.
However, the competition to sign the Serbian next summer will be intense. Therefore, Juventus cannot be insensitive if Chelsea were to make a ‘super offer’ for Chiesa.
For now, the talk about the big proposal from Tuchel’s side is nothing but fiction. The journalist is only making suggestions on how Juve would react, if they were to receive a big offer from the English club.
That offer needs to materialise before this gets serious.
