Red Devils have reportedly made a €55m offer for Fiorentina forward Federico Chiesa amid some doubts over a deal for Jadon Sancho. Man United are said to have launched an offer of €55m for Italy international.
It remains to be seen if this will come to anything, but the timing of this story is interesting as there could still be a snag in a potential deal to sign Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
Despite the England international transfer speculation hotting up, Red Devils and Dortmund remain far apart in their valuation of the 20-year-old winger.
The piece states that the Bundesliga giants want £100m for the Englishman, and it would not be too surprising if Red Devils were willing to look at cheaper alternatives.
The covid pandemic is bound to affect all football clubs’ finances, and that might mean Chiesa is the better option for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side right now.
Jadon is an exciting young talent, having shone in Serie A for some time now despite still only being 22 years of age.
Federico has been a first-team regular for Fiorentina for four years now, scoring 33 goals in 150 games for the club in all tournaments.
While Jadon Sancho is surely the name most Red Devils supporters are craving, Chiesa could be another useful new signing to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s front-line.
