Real Madrid are reportedly interested in signing 23-year-old Italian international Federico Chiesa from Juventus next summer.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Real Madrid are keen on signing Federico Chiesa in next summer’s transfer window, with Carlo Ancelotti a huge admirer of the talents of the 23-year-old Italian international.
Chiesa is currently in the midst of a two-year loan at Juventus from Fiorentina, having arrived at the Allianz Stadium in the summer of 2020. The Bianconeri have a conditional obligation to buy the young attacker next summer, and it is likely that they will be securing his services on a permanent deal in 2022.
As for his performances on the field, the 23-year-old took no time to establish himself as a key figure for Juventus and to date, he has a fine tally of 16 goals and 11 assists in 50 appearances to show for his efforts. Chiesa was also pivotal in Italy’s triumphant UEFA Euro 2020 campaign and so, it is hardly surprising that clubs like Real Madrid are hot on his trails.
Real Madrid are set for a big summer of 2022, wherein they are expected to bring in some top class players to complete a bit of an overhaul of the first-team squad. Attack, in particular, appears to be a major area of concern for Florentino Perez and Carlo Ancelotti, with Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe their priority targets.
However, in addition to the world class duo, Real Madrid appear to be interested in signing another attacker owing to the fitness struggles of Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale coupled with the inconsistencies of Marco Asensio. To that end, Los Blancos have been linked with Dusan Vlahovic, Ferran Torres and Bryan Gil, among others.
Chiesa, too, is a viable target for the Merengues, who are plotting a summer move for the 23-year-old. In fact, Real Madrid are also considering the prospect of including Eden Hazard as part of a deal to bring down his transfer fee, although it remains unknown whether Juventus would be open to such a deal.
Apart from Real Madrid, Chiesa has also been linked with Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United, and it remains to be seen if any of those three clubs have something to say about matters next summer. For now, an intriguing transfer story is setting up over the future of the UEFA Euro 2020 winner.
