Fiorentina president Pradè spoke on the team's discussions regarding Federico Chiesa, as the starlet is rumored to be possibly signing an extension with the club.
"We were hoping for a more reserved meeting. We told each other many things that there's the desire to speak. There's still a deal of two and a half years, therefore there was no rush. The important think is that he's well and puts himself at the team's disposition to bring them a victory. We needed to look each other in the eyes and tell each other something. Federico didn't ask to be sold, not in January nor June. At the right moment, he'll also speak. In this moment, he'll do his talking on the pitch."
"From his end, there was an opening. We tossed the basis for a new meeting in the future. For the moment, I repeat, he still has two and a half years on his contract. Our ownership is very strong. Was he ever on his way to Juve? That never came from the club. He isn't leaving in January, I never saw such an important transfer happen in the winter session. But we're not going to speak about his character or fake injuries. He must play to make us win the matches. After Verona, Montella spoke on the mental aspect, but he meant how it impacts the physical one."
