Fiorentina have revealed that new signing Giuseppe Rossi has a €35m rescission clause inserted into his contract.
The currently injured player joined the outfit on Friday from Villarreal and he’s today been unveiled by the Italian club.
“He’s signed a four-year deal with the option of another four years,” sporting director Daniele Prade commented.
“He’ll have a €35m rescission valuation for the first two years and then that will be reduced to €30m for the final two.”
It’s understood that the Tuscan giants have handed Villarreal €9m for the player, but that could rise by another €3m if certain bonus clauses are met.
“We’re happy that Pepito chose Florence because he had a lot of offers, it means that Fiorentina are doing well,” Prade added.
“Giuseppe is part of a medium to long-term plan and his arrival does not mean that Stevan Jovetic will leave.
“We’ll talk to Jovetic’s agent soon and then we’ll meet up again in June to discuss what is the best for everyone involved.”
Rossi, who has had to undergo surgery twice on a knee ligament problem, isn’t expected to be back in action until March.
