Man Utd ‘willing’ to bring Juventus young best attacker to the Premier League who many clubs are battling to sign

According to Tuttosport, Manchester United is open to bringing Juventus striker Federico Chiesa to the Premier League this summer.

Chiesa is regarded as one of the best attackers in the Italian top division, but following a challenging 2022–23 campaign, his future with the Bianconeri is in doubt.

Due to a knee ligament injury, the Italian missed the beginning of the season and only returned to first-team play before the World Cup.

In the latter half of the season, Chiesa was a regular member of Juventus’ matchday squad, but due to fitness problems, his playing time was constrained.

The former Fiorentina man picked up four short-term injuries, and he only became a regular starter for the Bianconeri in the final weeks of the campaign.

It is now reported that United are ‘willing’ to bring Chiesa to the Premier League, but they are not alone with Liverpool and Newcastle United also keen.

Chiesa would be a quality acquisition due to his versatility

The 25-year-old was phenomenal for Italy in their Euro 2020 winning campaign. He produced a splendid display in the final before suffering an injury blow.

Chiesa has since struggled to reach those heights. He picked up a serious knee injury in January last year which put him on the sidelines for nearly 10 months.

The Italian is now finding his feet after the lengthy setback. He was impressive in the final five league games for Juventus last term with two goals and two assists.

In our view, United should consider a summer move for Chiesa, who can play anywhere in attack.

He prefers to play from the right wing, but has also excelled from the left wing and second striker roles.

His dribbling and quick feet make him a difficult proposition for defenders. He would be a shrewd signing for the Red Devils if available for a cut-price fee.

It has recently been reported that Chiesa could be sold for €35 million plus add-ons. For that price, United should consider an approach for his services.

His fitness issues are a potential concern, but looking at his injury record, he has suffered just one long-term injury during his entire playing career.
