Juventus Transfer news: Chiesa transfer from Fiorentina may cost Juve €50m


    Juventus has completed the deadline day signing of Federico Chiesa from Fiorentina on a two-year loan.

    The Serie A giant also has the obligation to buy him permanently for €50 million.

    The 22-year-old Italy international is considered one of the hottest prospects in Italian football and the move. The Turin club finalized the move once Douglas Costa completed a loan move to Bayern Munich.

    But Juve will initially pay €10m over the two seasons for the loan with €3m for the 2020-21 campaign and €7m for the following term. The Bianconeri will then balance up €40m to make the deal permanent payable over three years. But it could rise by a further €10m.

    The winger made his debut for La Viola in 2016. His meteoric form has made him a regular in the Italy side under Roberto Mancini. He has so far earned 19 caps since his first appearance in 2018.

    Chiesa, whose father Enrico was also an Italy international who played for Fiorentina, will find his former Viola teammate Federico Bernardeschi at Juve. The midfielder left Fiorentina for the Turin giants in 2017.

    Chiesa insulted over Juve move

    Meanwhile, Chiesa is facing a backlash over the move after being insulted by his former Fiorentina fans.

    The winger got insulted on Monday afternoon while he was on his way out of Florence’s Fanfani clinic where he had undergone his medical tests with the Old Lady.

    He began his medical examination in the morning and left the spot in the afternoon, only to find a bunch of Fiorentina fans who booed and insulted him screaming “Shame on you”, “Traitor” and “Clown”.

    Chiesa is not the first player to switch allegiance to the Old Lady fronm Viola.

    He has now followed the footsteps of Roberto Baggio, Federico Bernardeschi, Felipe Melo, Netoto be amongst others that had previously left Fiorentina to join Juventus.

    Lega Calcio confirmed the move on Monday, while Juve and Fiorentina later confirmed the details as well.
