Juventus FC is by far the biggest and most popular team of Italy. For this reason, most of the players dreamed of playing for the Bianconeri, not only to accomplished what they used to dream when they were children but also to earn big pay checks that can only be paid by this club.
This, surely, were some of the reasons why Federico Chiesa decided to leave Fiorentina, the club were he was formed and trained during his youth divisions. But the winger had one special reason to join Andrea Pirlo's team no matter what. It was also a dream of his: he wanted to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.
Federico Chiesa is son of the former Italy, Genoa and Fiorentina player Enrico Chiesa. He was sent to the Viola's youth system by his father and made his professional debut in 2016. After five seasons, he moved to Juventus on loan with conditional obligation to buy for €40 million plus €10 million in variables.
His father wasn't in favor of the move. His brother neither, as he is an academy player of Fiorentina and has even received various threats since Federico's departure. But Chiesa's dream was to emigrate and to join Juventus. In fact, Federico Chiesa's dream was to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.
