Manchester United target Federico Chiesa is free to leave Fiorentina; the club owner Rocco Commisso has now admitted.
Commisso reportedly said in a press conference this week ‘If Chiesa wants, then he can leave, but only for the figure that we set’.
Daily Mail reported in February that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had sent scout Simon Wells to watch Chiesa in action in La Viola’s 1-1 draw with AC Milan.
The 22-year-old is the son of Italian legend Enrico who scored seven goals for the Azzurri in the 1990s; his son already equaling his national team appearance of 17 games.
The right-winger has scored 7 goals and registered 5 assists in 22 games this season with an overall tally of 29 goals in 138 games for Fiorentina.
United are all out for Jadon Sancho but would likely go for Chiesa if they can’t get England forward; the Italian reportedly valued at €60 million (£53m).
Apart from United, the player has constantly been linked with a move to Juventus with Chelsea and Inter Milan the other teams said to be interested in the player.
In addition to Chiesa, Sevilla’s Lucas Ocampo, Schalke’s Rabbi Matondo, Juventus’ Federico Bernardeschi, Valencia’s Ferran Torres and Shakhtar Donetsk’s Tete are the other players being linked with a move to Old Trafford.
