Commisso: 'Chiesa won't leave Italy'

Federico Chiesa ‘had offers from abroad, but he wants to stay in Italy,’ confirms Fiorentina President Rocco Commisso.

The attacking wide man turns 23 next month and was linked with clubs including Inter, Juventus, Milan, Manchester United, PSG, Tottenham and Atletico Madrid.

“I already said that if the right offer comes in, then Chiesa can leave,” Commisso told RAI Sport show 90 minuto.

“We have received offers from abroad, but nothing concrete, and he wants to stay in Italy.”

With a contract due to expire in June 2022, time is running out to find Chiesa a new club or extend his current Fiorentina stay.

Viola director of sport Daniele Pradè told Sky Sport Italia this weekend that Chiesa’s transfer value is “something more than €70m.”

There are simply no Serie A clubs prepared to pay that sum.

According to Calciomercato.com, he could be allowed to leave on loan with obligation to buy for €50m plus bonuses.
