Manchester United have reportedly submitted a €55million transfer offer for Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa amid some doubts over a deal for Jadon Sancho, as translated by Football Italia.
BBC Sport has suggested there could still be a snag in a potential deal to sign Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.
Despite the Sancho transfer speculation hotting up, the BBC claim the Red Devils and Dortmund remain far apart in their valuation of the England international.
The piece states that the Bundesliga giants want £100m for Sancho, and it would not be too surprising if Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side were willing to look at cheaper alternatives.
The coronavirus pandemic is bound to affect all football clubs’ finances, and that might mean the Italy international is the better option for United right now.
Chiesa is an exciting young talent, having shone in Serie A for some time now despite still only being 22 years of age.
The 22-year-old has been a first-team regular for Fiorentina for four years now, netting 33 times in 150 appearances for the club in all competitions.
No doubt Sancho is the name most United fans are yearning for, Chiesa could be another useful new addition to Solskjaer’s attack.
