Man Utd told £43.3m fee will seal playmaker signing – Report

United Old Trafford

Manchester United have spent a large part of their reported £120m transfer budget in securing deals for Mason Mount and Andre Onana.

The former has already made two appearances during pre-season and the latter is travelling to New York to join up with his new teammates for the U.S. tour.

United’s attack is still light compared to other top Premier League clubs and the latest reports indicate they are after a top Italian playmaker.

According to a report covered by Corriere dello Sport today, Man Utd alongside Liverpool and Newcastle, are interested in Juventus winger Federico Chiesa.

The Old Lady are looking to trim their squad this summer and will allow the Italian international to leave if they receive a bid worth 50 million euros (£43.3m).

In the last two summer transfer windows, the Red Devils splashed a lot of cash to lure wingers like Jadon Sancho and Antony.

However, the duo have failed to live up to their mammoth price tags, on the other hand, the future of Greenwood remains up in the air.

Therefore, Erik ten Hag needs to improve the quality and depth of the wide offensive positions and a proven player like Chiesa would be a top addition.

The Euro 2020 winning playmaker, who was named in the Team of the Tournament, has the ability and versatility to improve United’s frontline and could prove to be a smart buy for the quoted price.

However, in recent seasons, he’s struggled with fitness issues. Ever since moving to Juventus from Fiorentina, the Azzurri star has missed 66 games for the club through different injuries.

Have your say – Should Man Utd bid £43.3m to sign Federico Chiesa?
