ROME – Federico Chiesa towards Juventus . The agreement already exists between the bianconeri and Fiorentina's talent. But, as already happened with Roberto Baggio who passed from the Viola to Juve, the company tries not to feed the anger of the fans (especially after the disappointing season just ended). And so here is the statement:
"We read continuous news from others about the future of the Church and where the next championship will play. The current ownership is keen to point out that Federico is a Fiorentina player tied to the Company by a long contract and therefore, as far as we are concerned, Chiesa next year will play in Florence and must be the symbol player for the team that will be built ”.
A standard statement, read and re-read when it talks about market rumors, if it weren't for the fact that in the meantime "the current property", it sold Fiorentina to the Italian-American Commisso for 170 million. Then? Unless Commisso decides to surprise managing to do what Cecchi Gori failed to do with Baggio, or keep it, the statement may also have been made to "force" Commissioner to really take his commitment with Fiorentina seriously, committing to build a team around the purest talent, or church …
Almost impossible mission, the Della Valle knew it and they still know it, so here is the reason for the release before finally selling, not to pass like those who sold Juventus (not really nice to Viola fans) their strongest player: Baggio passed to Florence almost as a traitor, and Church? (Source La Nazione).
The article Chiesa – Juve, the Fiorentina communiqué and that precedent with Roberto Baggio seems to be the first on daily Blitz .
