Manchester United could challenge Juventus’ decision regarding Federico Chiesa, as they plan to present an offer for the Italian winger in the upcoming winter market. Erik ten Hag is looking to reinforce his squad with a new winger, and Chiesa has become a priority target.
As reported on Fichajes.net, Federico Chiesa has entered the list of possible signings for Manchester United in the winger position. Although Juventus considers Chiesa a fundamental member of their team, the interest from the English club could tempt them to consider a significant offer.
The signing that Manchester United wants to make in January
Manchester United had not initially planned to strengthen their forward line during the summer transfer window. However, the situation has changed drastically since then. The uncertainty surrounding Antony’s future, due to assault allegations, and the dispute between Hag and Jadon Sancho have created an unexpected need in the team.
The strained relationship between Sancho and Ten Hag has led to the English player being relegated to the youth teams and being banned from using the first team’s training facilities. This is due to a social media post after the defeat to Arsenal, which the manager considered inappropriate.
With the possibility of a serious shortage of wingers on the horizon, Manchester United could look for a reliable option in the winter market. Although there was talk of interest in Serge Gnabry, this rumor has now been ruled out. Other names that have emerged are Federico Chiesa and Nico Williams, both players in excellent form this season.
Nico Williams, who is looking to join Real Madrid, could move away from Premier League teams. However, Federico Chiesa could be a more accessible target, although he faces competition from other clubs, including Liverpool.
Juventus were prepared to sell Chiesa during the summer, but his impressive start to the season has raised his value. The Bianconeri could consider offers in excess of €70m for the 25-year-old Italian but have so far been reluctant to negotiate in January.
Manchester United will have to present an attractive offer that convinces Juventus to start talks. This move will be a challenge as Premier League clubs have historically struggled to attract Italian players, and the same could apply to 25-year-old Chiesa.
