Manchester United coach Ten Hag is desperate in recruiting Italian forward Chiesa from Juventus. Under Erik ten Hag, Manchester United have progressed considerably this season while competing on all four fronts. In the aftermath of some impressive results, talk of a title charge flickered, but some poor performances have meant those have fizzled out due to a lack of squad depth. In order for the club to advance, the Dutch manager knows it is crucial to recruit well next season.
Following Juventus’ 15-point suspension for arranging a three-season transfer scam, the Red Devils are watching the situation with interest. If Juventus misses out on Champions League football, it could affect their financial prospects. This will also affect their ability to attract top talent, and ability to hold onto their best players.
Ten Hag is rumored to be targeting Dusan Vlahovic, and now Federico Chiesa has been added to the list.
Will Chiesa be effective for the Red Devils?
With Chiesa recovering from an ACL injury he sustained last year, it has been a difficult period for the talented footballer. He recently scored against Monza in the Coppa Italia to open his account for the season. However, rumors have been sparking all around.
Reports from Calcio Mercato stated:
“The winger seems to have finally returned to his level, and in view of next summer there could be the onslaught of Manchester United.”
Despite his price tag of €100m, Ten Hag won’t give up on the player. He is hell-bent on taking United back to the top.
There are also rumors linking the Italian to a move to Liverpool as Mohamed Salah’s future remains uncertain.
At the moment, United lacks options on the right wing, and Chiesa could definitely solve that problem. From the days when he played for Fiorentina, he has been a long-time target of United.
