Serie A - Montolivo to be sold abroad
Fiorentina have confirmed they will only consider selling midfielder Riccardo Montolivo to a foreign club.
Montolivo, 26, has been told that he has no future at the Italian club after refusing to sign an extension to his contract, which expires at the end of the season.
Milan were strongly linked with the Italy international earlier in the summer but Fiorentina are determined to see their former captain move to a foreign league.
“Montolivo doesn’t believe in the Fiorentina project,” sporting director Pantaleo Corvino said. “As a result, the player will be sold abroad.”
“As for Gilardino, we have had no offers for him. There has just been a verbal interest from one club.”
