He told Stats Perform: “If I were Chiesa I would think twice before leaving Fiorentina.

“Commisso came with a lot of enthusiasm and plan and if I were Federico Chiesa I would think twice before leaving this Fiorentina with a new ownership.”

“Chiesa is a Fiorentina player,” Barone told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“There are clubs knocking at the door for Chiesa, some of them who speak English… We’ll see, for the moment we just need to finish the season and he is very concentrated on doing well for us.”
