Federico Chiesa Deemed Untouchable Amid Bayern Munich Interest

Federico Chiesa will be going nowhere this summer despite Bayern Munich’s growing interest in the highly-rated Juventus winger. According to reputed journalist Fabrizio Romano, new boss Massimiliano Allegri has deemed the Italian winger untouchable and will make him central to his project in Turin.

Chiesa is currently away on international duty at Euro 2020 as Roberto Mancini’s men prepare to launch an assault on continental glory on Sunday. The former Fiorentina forward scored an all-important goal against Spain in the semi-finals that Italy went on to win on penalties to set up a high-profile showpiece against England at Wembley.

Chiesa moved to the Allianz Stadium on a two-year loan with an obligation to buy for €40million, having accrued 15 goals and 11 assists across all competitions in his maiden season in Turin. After earning a household status at Juventus, the 23-year-old should be one of Allegri’s most trusted allies next season as the Bianconeri hope to regain supremacy in Serie A.

Indeed, Allegri is determined to fend off potential suitors for the Italian winger and keep hold of Chiesa beyond the summer. 

Elsewhere, Bayern Munich have registered an interest in the pacey forward following Leroy Sane’s disappointing first season at the club. The Bavarians are keen to reinforce their attacking department in the summer and mount more pressure on the Champions League crown next term.

But the perennial Bundesliga champions will have to look for recruits away from Turin as Juventus have no intention of selling Chiesa. Romano is adamant Allegri will not allow the Geno native to leave Italy in the summer as he hopes to build his team around the sought youngster.
