Manchester United should consider an ambitious loan approach for Juventus forward Federico before the transfer window closes on Tuesday night.

The Red Devils have had a quiet January transfer window. They have made just two loan signings in Jack Butland and Wout Weghorst from Crystal Palace and Burnley respectively.

Ahead of the transfer deadline, the club are eyeing another forward on loan but they will have to explore options abroad as their domestic loan quota (two) has already been filled.

In recent days, it has been reported that United have an interest in Juventus’ Chiesa and in our opinion, United should make an initial loan move for him with a purchase option.

Chiesa would be an ideal signing for Man Utd

Chiesa had a brilliant 2020/21 season for the Bianconeri. He bagged 15 goals and 11 assists from 40 appearances and also starred for Italy in their successful Euro 2020 campaign.

Within months, the 25-year-old suffered a serious anterior cruciate ligament injury, but appears on his way back. Since his return, he has three goal contributions in just 250 minutes.

United are unlikely to meet Juventus’ £88 million valuation for the player amid a possible takeover, but a loan deal with the proposal to buy would prove a good piece of business.

Chiesa would be an ideal signing for the Red Devils as he can play anywhere in attack. He is most comfortable on the flanks but can also lead the line or play behind the striker.

An initial loan deal would be a risk-free investment for United as they can assess whether the Italian is fully fit and can adapt to the tactical demands of manager Erik ten Hag.

Juventus with their ongoing financial issues could also be open to such an agreement, though they may demand an obligation to buy after the player meets certain conditions.
