Fiorentina have offered superstar Federico Chiesa a new deal worth up to €4.5m a year, which works out to nearly €86,500-a-week. Italy international is being lined up for a move to the Premier League this summer, with Red Devils and Chelsea said to be eyeing a move for the winger.
Fiorentina’s new deal offer is worth double what Federico currently earns, it’s clear that the Italian club want to keep hold of the attacker. It’s added that the new contract would tie Chiesa down to 2025. The 22-year-old winger’s signature would cost nearly £60m.
Negotiations of a new contract aren’t certain to stop a possible move from happening, with it suggested that La Viola will only have until July to agree on a new deal before the star may consider an exit. The Norwegian boss is in the market for a new winger in the next transfer window in a bid to offer support for Rashford and Martial.
Man United would also have to reportedly fend off interest from Serie A clubs Juventus and Inter Milan to secure the Italian forward’s signature. In a major boost for Red Devils and Chelsea, as Federico is also a fluent speaker of English. This would surely help a high-profile signing like Federico settle quickly if he were to move to England.
Federico has primarily been used as a centre-forward for Fiorentina this campaign, the winger’s natural position when he started his professional career was on the wings but he’s now flourishing in a new role. Chiesa has bagged seven goals and provided five assists in 26 games across all tournaments this campaign.
