Juventus striker Federico Chiesa returned to training with the rest of the squad on Friday ahead of the crucial Serie A game against league leaders Milan on Sunday evening.

The 25-year-old was called up to Italy’s squad by Luciano Spalletti for the final EURO 2024 qualifiers against Malta and England but later withdrew due to a thigh problem.

Subsequent medicals ruled out a serious muscle injury, but Chiesa’s continued concern meant he had not trained for more than a week.

Now however, multiple outlets including Goal Italia and Il Corriere dello Sport are reporting that Chiesa returned to training with the group on Friday, having followed a personalized plan in the previous days.

Il Corriere dello Sport adds that it may be too soon for Chiesa to be given a starting role against the Rossoneri at San Siro this weekend, but the possibility of him contributing from the bench cannot be ruled out.

Chiesa has featured in seven games so far in this new edition of the Serie A competition, contributing four goals.

He joined Juventus in July of last year from Fiorentina, for 42 million euros.
