Fiorentina captain Manuel Pasqual has signed a new contract with the Viola, tying himself to the club until 2015.
The defender has signed for a further year with the Tuscan side, but has the option of staying until 2016.
“I have signed until 2015 with an option of staying until 2016,” he told reporters. “I’ve also got some bonuses tied to appearances.
“We started negotiating back in April, but Fiorentina wanted to settle in the best way possible – that’s why it took us more time than it usually would.
“I had originally asked for a two-year deal, but the club only give one-year contracts to players over 30.”
