Man Utd target Juventus winger as an alternative to Jadon Sancho

Manchester United have reportedly set their eyes on Juventus winger Federico Chiesa.

The former Fiorentina forward signed an initial two-year loan deal with Juventus last summer for a reported price of €40m, with the option of buying the player if certain conditions are met, as per Goal.

But according to a report from Todo Fichajes, United are targeting the 22-year-old as an alternative to Jadon Sancho, who could yet again appear to be too expensive for the club this summer.

The report goes on to claim United expect to complete the signing of Chiesa for around €75-80m but there’s not a big difference in how much Sancho is going to cost this year.

Chiesa has scored 34 goals in 153 games for Fiorentina and has settled in quickly at Juve. He has scored seven goals and eight assists for the club in 24 league appearances and has also scored four goals in the Champions League.

United have tried several players in the right-wing slot with Daniel James and Mason Greenwood emerging as the two best options.

James is likely going to be a squad player down the line, and a very good one, while I don’t see Greenwood playing on the right flank in 5 years. Hopefully the Academy star becomes the ultimate centre-forward by then.
