Agent Addresses Contract Standstill Between Juventus and Chiesa

Federico Chiesa’s agent Fali Ramadani has delivered his verdict on recent speculation over the player’s stratospheric demands in ongoing extension talks with Juventus. The Italian winger has reportedly requested €8 million net salary per season to pledge his future to the Allianz Stadium.

Talks between the Bianconeri and the 25-year-old over a new deal are underway. The Italians hope to pin their star down to a long-term contract amid growing interest from foreign clubs, including Bayern Munich. Such a staggering wage demand would comfortably put Juventus off. But Ramadani insists there’s no shred of truth in such claims. 

Chiesa has never requested €8m net salary per season to sign a new deal. This is not true, fake news,” he said, as relayed by Fabrizio Romano. Whether this was Ramadani’s attempt to play down the rumors or send a message to potential buyers, his client’s future in Turin hangs in the balance. Perhaps now more than ever. 

Chiesa’s contract at Juventus runs out in two years. However, the quicksilver forward has grown frustrated with manager Massimiliano Allegri. Having tumbled down the pecking order, the former Fiorentina man seems to be contemplating a summer exit to secure regular first-team football elsewhere

Last season was particularly frustrating for Chiesa. Following an injury-hit start to the 2022/23 campaign, he lost his place in the starting line-up. Only six Serie A starts, accompanied by two goals, have led to speculation he could be severing ties with Juventus in the summer transfer window. 

The club’s view of the situation remains unclear. Allegri’s defensive-minded football clipped Chiesa’s wings last term. But the Italian wasn’t the only attacker whose performances took a downward curve. Dusan Vlahovic also suffered from the Italian’s conservative approach, raising doubts about his long-term prospects at Juventus. 

Both players boast undeniable potential. However, Allegri has been unable to unlock it. That leaves us with two options. Either Juventus sack the ex-Milan boss and find a more attacking-minded tactician, or Chiesa and Vlahovic walk away for a more suited environment.
