Juventus ready to offer ‘world-class’ star in swap deal for Man United forward

Juventus could negotiate a swap deal for Manchester United forward Mason Greenwood this summer, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Greenwood spent the recent campaign on loan with Getafe, registering ten goals and six assists in 36 appearances in all competitions.

United are prepared to part ways with him permanently this summer and the Bianconeri are currently the front-runners to secure a deal.

The Turin giants are reluctant to pay the asking price between £34-42 million and could instead propose a swap agreement involving Chiesa.

The Bianconeri are currently on the cusp of signing Douglas Luiz from Aston Villa in a similar move.

The club are expected to pay a small fee in addition to Enzo Barrenechea and Samuel Iling Junior moving to Villa Park as part of the agreement.

Juventus have a similar strategy to land Greenwood, but Lazio could scupper their plans with a better proposal.

United could be tempted by Juventus’ offer

Chiesa has been linked with a Premier League move for several seasons. His contract expires in June 2025, so a transfer could happen this time.

The 26-year-old made 13 goal contributions from 37 appearances last season. He predominantly played as a second striker for the Bianconeri.

However, he is also comfortable operating from either wing. He has been most successful from the right flank where United have lacked creativity.

He would be a good acquisition in a swap deal, although United should ask for a transfer fee on top, given Greenwood is younger and has a higher ceiling.

Former Italian defender Alessandro Pierini described Chiesa as ‘world-class‘ following his sublime run of form en route to the 2020 European Championship final.
