Federico Chiesa finds himself at a crossroads in his career with Juventus. The 26-year-old's contract is set to expire in June 2025, and the club is eager to extend his stay to prevent losing him on a free transfer next year according to Gazzetta.

However, the relationship between Chiesa and current manager Massimiliano Allegri is reportedly strained, which could lead to the player's exit if Allegri remains at the helm for the 2024-25 season.

AS Roma has surfaced as a likely destination for Chiesa, with manager Daniele De Rossi expressing a strong desire to reunite with the attacker after their triumphant partnership during Euro 2020.

Juventus is willing to sell Chiesa to their Serie A rival, but they will not budge on their asking price, meaning Roma must be prepared to meet the club's valuation to secure his signature.

Chiesa's current market value on Juventus' balance sheet is reported to be €13.78 million, and Roma is confident in their ability to afford his wages, which are said to exceed €5 million per year. The anticipated return of Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea will create significant salary space for the Giallorossi, making the move more feasible.

If Juventus fails to reach an agreement with Chiesa on a new contract, they will likely seek to sell him this summer to avoid losing him for free when his current deal expires in 2025.

The uncertainty surrounding Allegri's future at the club, with his contract also set to expire in June 2025, adds another layer of complexity to the situation. Juventus recognises that their chances of securing Chiesa's long-term future are higher if Allegri departs the club.

Since joining Juventus from Fiorentina in 2020, Chiesa has scored 30 goals in 125 appearances for the club. Despite battling injuries this season and missing several Serie A games due to physical issues, he remains a highly coveted talent in the world of football.

In addition to Roma, Premier League giants Liverpool are also reportedly interested in Chiesa and are closely monitoring his situation at Juventus.

As the summer transfer window approaches, the future of Federico Chiesa and his potential move away from Turin will be a captivating storyline to follow in the realm of Italian football.

The talented attacker's decision could hinge on the fate of manager Massimiliano Allegri, as well as the determination of suitors like Roma and Liverpool to secure his signature.
