Juventus: Barcelona wants stellar trade for Federico Chiesa

A stellar swap between Juventus and Barcelona is on the horizon: according to rumors reported by Mediaset, a sensational market deal involving Federico Chiesa could soon get underway. Rumors indicate that the Blaugrana would have offered the Bianconeri Franck Kessié, who has been a market target of the Torinese for weeks, plus money, to get Federico Chiesa in exchange.

In the press conference a few days ago, sporting director Cristiano Giuntoli had opened to a possible sale of the former Fiorentina player, but only in the face of very high offers. It is no secret that Chiesa is not comfortable in Massimiliano Allegri’s system of play, and in case of a concrete offer from Barcelona he would hardly say no.

At the same time, Juventus has identified Kessié as an important player for Allegri and could soon enter into negotiations: however, a significant financial match will be needed, because the Ivorian former Atalanta player is valued at €30 million, while Federico Chiesa is worth at least €65-70 million according to Juventus.

“We are betting on Dusan and also on Federico, technically they are incedible. But it’s no mystery that we need to fix the accounts, so if irrenounceable offers come we can think about it. 70-80 million? I don’t make figures,” were Giuntoli’s words in the press conference.
