While Paris Saint Germain has opted to sell Neymar for €90 million, the Paris-based club already has a comparable alternative in place. PSG recently bought Barcelona’s Ousmane Dembele before allowing Neymar to leave the French capital.

It will be intriguing to watch which next-generation superstar is faced with filling Neymar’s shoes at PSG for the rest of the 2023-2024 season.

Rumors tying Federico Chiesa to a move away from Juventus have significantly cooled in recent weeks. A circulating story, however, says that the 25-year-old may have a new prestigious suitor.

PSG could turn to Chiesa as a substitute for Neymar, according to Tuttosport via JuventusNews24.

The Brazilian superstar’s departure will free up some space on the park’s left wing. According to the insider, the Euro 2020 winner could be the appropriate profile to fill the void.

According to the source, Juventus may be open to offers of 60 million euros or more. The Italian’s current deal expires in 2025. As a result, the insider feels that the Bianconeri are unlikely to receive enticing offers for the player next summer, as the expiry date approaches.

Chiesa joined Juventus in 2020 after establishing himself at Fiorentina. Under the tutelage of Andrea Pirlo, he had a sensational debut season in Turin.

He had a severe ACL injury the following season, effectively ending his playing career. Next season, the winger will try to recapture his previous heights.

Juventus has managed to shed numerous players in recent days, which should be enough to balance the books.

So, unless the Italian club receives enormous compensation, the club’s administration must not sacrifice Chiesa’s services, as he is one of the few remaining Juventus players capable of wreaking havoc in the final third.
