Giuseppe Prestia career history until 2020
This FM 2014 player profile of Giuseppe Prestia shows a very talented young defender, he can become very strong and decent on the ball as well. He is co-owned by Parma and Crotone at the start of the game and the two clubs have different valuations of the player, as you can see in the “price tag” section above. I believe that Parma could lower their demands later in the game though.
In my test save he had slow but steady progress, switched between a few clubs in Italy before a big move to Chelsea in 2017. He had a couple of good seasons in the Premier League, even though it seems Chelsea brought him in as a backup and not as an important first team player.
However, his quality at the age of 26 is pretty good, he became strong and fairly quick, good mental attributes and very solid defensive attributes on the technical side. The 7.3 million fee would be a slight risk due to his initial ability, you will have to develop him for a couple of seasons before he can become an important first team player. The talent is surely there though.
