Milan have made a new offer for Veretout and the parties are getting closer, but Fiorentina don’t want Biglia.
Fiorentina directors Daniele Pradè and Joe Barone arrived in Casa Milan this afternoon to talk with the leadership of the Rossoneri about Jordan Veretout.
The Frenchman has not been included in the Viola’s squad for the United States Tour and so it’s clear that he is likely to leave Firenze and Tuscany this summer.
The meeting between the parties lasted about an hour and according to Sky Italia and Gianluca Di Marzio, the meeting was fruitful. Di Marzio believes that steps forward have been made in the negotiations and that Milan are getting closer to the demands of Fiorentina for the 26-year-old.
Di Marzio says the Rossoneri have increased their bid but doesn’t mention the exact numbers. Sportitalia’s Alfredo Pedullà, however, reports that Milan are now offering €18m plus €2m of bonuses. Both Di Marzio and Pedullà agree, in any case, that Lucas Biglia is not included in the deal as Fiorentina do not wish to have him at the moment, despite the interest of coach Vincenzo Montella.
Roma are still in the race as well and are expected to meet Fiorentina today as well. Veretout likes the possibility of going to Milan and is pushing for a quick finish for this saga.
