One of last summer’s more interesting transfer storylines involved the potential butting of heads between Federico Chiesa’s career aspirations and Rocco Commisso, Fiorentina’s brand new owner, desire not to sell off the club’s brightest young star. Would Chiesa to the club he’s been at virtually his entire life, or will his desire to potentially move on to one of Serie A’s bigger clubs — say, like Juventus — make it a situation that needs fixing.
When the summer transfer window closed last August, Chiesa was still with La Viola, still expected to be the club’s best player and his presence alone made Commisso a very happy fella.
What about this summer, though?
Well, it looks like last summer’s storyline is going to turn into this summer’s storyline redux.
