Manchester United could move for Juventus star Federico Chiesa in the January transfer window
The wide-man is emerging as a top target for Erik ten Hag, who is eager to add a fresh winger to his team. Juventus views Chiesa as an integral part of their team, but United’s desire might make the Bianconeri think twice, especially if a mammoth bid is put on the table.
Initially, United had no intention of bolstering their forward line during the winter transfer period. But since recently, the situation has radically changed.
An unanticipated need has arisen in the team as a result of the uncertainty surrounding Antony’s future owing to assault allegations and the conflict between Ten Hag and Jadon Sancho. Chiesa has always desired to play in the Premier League, so even though the chance may come up sooner than expected, it might be the best option for him.
Chiesa is quick, and United has a history of signing players who make full use of their pace. This may be quite useful for a side looking to recreate the football that Ten Hag put together at Ajax Amsterdam.
Manchester United will need to make Juventus an enticing offer in order to start negotiations for Chiesa. This move can be difficult because Premier League clubs have historically had trouble luring Italian players, and the 25-year-old is the cream of the Azzurri roster.
Jadon Sancho’s position on this United team is still up in the air right now. Unless something takes a turn fast, the Englishman might as well have played his last game in red. Selling him next year will need the club to bring in a new winger. Chiesa clearly fits the bill.
