In a surprising turn of events, Juventus is reportedly considering offering Federico Chiesa to Manchester United in exchange for Mason Greenwood who Manchester United has decided to sell, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport. Chiesa currently playing the EUROs with Italy, is not part of new coach Thiago Motta's plans. Chiesa has a contract expiring in June 2025 and is expected to leave Turin this summer.

While Napoli, Roma, and German giants Bayern Munich have been linked with the Italian international, the latest reports suggest a potential swap deal with Manchester United is more likely. This move can allow Juventus to secure Greenwood without paying the hefty price tag that Manchester United has put in. Greenwood, who spent the season on loan at Getafe, is also attracting interest from Lazio. However, Lazio's financial restrictions mean they could only offer a deal worth up to €30 million including add-ons, likely to be structured as a loan with an option to buy.

The swap deal is a win-win for both clubs, with Manchester United getting a proven winner in Chiesa while Juventus avoiding a transfer fee altogether for Greenwood. Additionally, Juventus has also shown interest in Manchester United's Jadon Sancho but any potential deal would likely involve a loan with United covering part of his salary, which Manchester United are unlikely to entertain as they are set to offload Jadon Sancho, who spent the last season on loan at Borussia Dortmund.
