Jadon Sancho aside, most of the rumours involving Manchester United so far this season have been about centre-backs, strikers or central midfielders.

However, the right-wing remains an area of desperate need for the Premier League side, and the Italian media know this.

We’ve seen a number of stories linking United to Federico Chiesa in the past, and while they aren’t as persistent as those for the likes of Kalidou Koulibaly, they do pop up now and then.

The problem for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, if he does indeed have the Italian on his list of desired targets for the right hand side of his attack, will be dealing with Fiorentina.

The Serie A side are keen to hold onto the 22-year-old if they can, but they know there’s only so much money they can refuse.

That’s why Gazzetta dello Sport are reporting that Fiorentina are ready to make a ‘small discount’ on the €70m price tag previously placed on Chiesa, but will only take cash for it.

Other interested sides, like Juventus, have been trying to include players in any potential deal, but that’s not what Rocco Commisso and co. are looking for.

So, if Manchester United do want Chiesa (and Gazzetta point out they do), likely down as a backup plan if their efforts for Sancho end up in vain, then it’ll be somewhere just under €70m.

With seven goals and five assists in 26 games this season, his output isn’t quite the same as the Englishman, but, then again, he’d be a bit cheaper.

You get what you pay for, after all.
