Juventus have rejected Chelsea’s ambitious bid worth 100 million euros for Italy’s standout player from the Euro 2020, Federico Chiesa.
According to Christian Falk, Chelsea offered Juventus 100 million euros for Federico Chiesa this summer for a club-record transfer sale. However, the Bianconeri have rejected the Blues’ offer as they are keen on holding on to Chiesa for the longer run.
The 23-year-old had a fantastic debut season with Juventus as he scored 15 goals and provided 11 assists in all competitions. The Italian international delivered in several demanding fixtures for Juve last season. He scored the winner against Atalanta in Coppa Italia final and slotted home three goals against Porto in the UEFA Champions League round of 16 across two legs.
Chiesa is currently on a two-year loan deal at the Allianz Stadium from Fiorentina but the Bianconeri are obliged to purchasing the player for 50 million euros including variables, next year. The hierarchy at Turin considers the winger to be their future superstar and plan on building their sporting project around him.
His performances with Juve last season earned him a call up into Roberto Mancini’s 26-man Italy squad for the Euro 2020. Federico Chiesa was one of Mancini’s standout performers and played a pivotal role in guiding the Azzurri to their second European championship. He also was one of the best players in the tournament and performed exceptionally well in the final.
It is a no brainer that Chiesa will play a pivotal role for the Bianconeri next season under new manager, Massimiliano Allegri. Paulo Dybala has been struggling with injuries in the past two seasons, however, the former Fiorentina forward has filled in La Joya’s role perfectly. Allegri can count on him next season if Dybala’s unfortunate struggles with injuries persist.
Meanwhile, Juventus are currently facing severe financial difficulties and they may have to offload a certain number of players over the summer to balance their books. They can consider offloading the likes of Aaron Ramsey, Alex Sandro, Arthur Melo, Cristiano Ronaldo and Merih Demiral to meet their objective but a young talent like the 23-year-old should not be part of the cause.
