Carlo Ancelotti wants Real Madrid to sign Federico Chiesa

Carlo Ancelotti reportedly wants Real Madrid to sign his compatriot Federico Chiesa, with Juventus demanding €25-30 million to sell him.

According to a report by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Federico Chiesa will likely leave Juventus in the summer transfer window. The Serie A giants are demanding around €25-30 million to sell the Italian international. And Carlo Ancelotti is pushing Real Madrid to sign his compatriot for the cut-price fee.

Federico Chiesa and his Juventus rollercoaster

Federico Chiesa has endured a topsy-turvy ride since joining Juventus from Fiorentina. The 26-year-old is a native of Genoa but rose in prominence during his spell with La Viola. Juventus signed him on an initial two-year loan deal in October 2020 before completing a permanent move in July 2022.

Chiesa was excellent for the Bianconeri in his first few seasons at the Allianz Stadium but has experienced a dip in performance levels since returning from a long-term injury layoff. The Italian international was not at his best in the 2023/24 season, managing only ten goals and three assists in 37 appearances across all competitions.

The former Fiorentina attacker faces an uncertain future at Juventus heading into the summer transfer window, with the Bianconeri ready to cash in on him. The Serie A giants want around €25-30 million to sell Chiesa, with the situation alerting several high-profile clubs. Meanwhile, he has emerged as a target for Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti.

Where next?

Real Madrid can do with a player like Federico Chiesa in the summer transfer window. While the Merengues have heavily bolstered their attack this summer by landing Kylian Mbappe and Endrick, they have also lost a dependable backup player, with Joselu moving abroad.

So, it behoves Real Madrid to delve into the market for a low-cost offensive reinforcement. Chiesa has thus emerged as a viable target for Los Blancos, with Carlo Ancelotti pushing the club to bring his compatriot to the Santiago Bernabeu in the summer transfer window.

The Italian international will not cost a bomb, considering Juventus will sell him for around €25-30 million. He can potentially fill Joselu’s void as he can play across the frontline, making him an attractive target. It will be interesting to see if he moves to Real Madrid in the summer transfer window.
