Chiesa: 'Italy Euro 2020 contenders'

Federico Chiesa sees France and Portugal as the main rivals for Italy at Euro 2020 and described the importance of tactics for new Fiorentina coach Beppe Iachini.

The Azzurri qualified with a 100 per cent record of 10 wins out of 10 and will face Turkey, Switzerland and Wales in the group stage of the tournament proper.

“I feel we are a very strong side, plus the coach Roberto Mancini taught us a lot in the last few years. He showed us how to play, keeping a lot of possession, a lot of intensity,” Chiesa told the official Fiorentina site.

Brazilian sides in for Pedro

Flamengo and Gremio have both reportedly joined the race to sign Fiorentina striker Pedro.

Globo Esporte reports Flamengo want to take Pedro on a year-long loan, similar to their deal for Inter forward Gabriel Barbosa.

It comes after a year that saw the Rubro-Negro crowned champions of South America - but not before splashing out on new players and a new coach.

However, the outlet adds they face competition from rivals Gremio, who could capitalise on Fiorentina’s interest in their defender Walter Kannemann.

'Ronaldo could end career at Juve'

Jorge Mendes has confessed that Cristiano Ronaldo could end his career at Juventus and said he “would’ve won the Ballon d’Or if still at Real Madrid.”

There appeared to be unrest between Ronaldo and Maurizio Sarri earlier in the season as the No 7 rejected claims made by his coach of a knee injury.

That escalated when the No 7 reacted angrily to being substituted against Milan in November, but Mendes maintains Sarri is “a great coach” and that his prized client could retire in Turin.

Mendes: 'Messi Ballon d'Or unjust'

Agent Jorge Mendes claims Lionel Messi shouldn’t have won the Ballon d’Or this year. “It was an injustice. Cristiano Ronaldo would've won if he was at Real Madrid.”

The Argentine superstar collected his sixth gong earlier this month, going one ahead of the Portuguese striker in the career Ballon d’Or race, with Ronaldo finishing third on the podium.

Mendes, speaking at the Golden Boy awards in Turin, says it wasn’t the correct decision to award the prize to Messi.
