Juventus finally has their man. After teasing their fans last year with obtaining Federico Chiesa, he is finally coming to Turin after Juve finalized his transfer from Fiorentina .
To make room for Chiesa, Douglas Costa was loaned to Bayern Munich to free up salary . Here is what the transfer looks like in terms of euros .
He joins the Scudetto holders on an initial two-year loan. The transfer includes an obligation to buy at the end of the 2021-22 season. Juve will pay €3 million up front, €7 million for the second year of the deal, and then an additional €40 million to make the move permanent, assuming certain "sporting" clauses are achieved.
Chiesa, who has been shifted across various positions at Fiorentina, joins a Juventus side that has made a concerted effort to inject some youth into what was an aging, squad last season under Maurizio Sarri.
New manager Andrea Pirlo suddenly has a crop of intriguing young talents to work with, though it remains to be seen where the Italian international will fit into the lineup. Being naturally a winger, Chiesa has seen time as a wing-back at Fiorentina; perhaps Pirlo, who's favored using wing-backs and a three-man defense early in his tenure, will stick with that trend? On the surface, it seems like a waste of Chiesa's most exciting attributes, but perhaps Pirlo has a grand plan in mind for one of Serie A’s most amazing talents.
