Commisso: ‘Vlahovic will not renew with Fiorentina’

by | Oct 5, 2021 10:31

Fiorentina President Rocco Commisso has revealed striker Dusan Vlahovic will not renew with the Viola but could decide to keep him until June 2023.

The 21-year-old has just under two years left on his deal in Florence, but the patron has revealed in a statement on the club’s official website that the striker will not renew his deal at the Artemio Franchi.

“The renewal proposal was not accepted,” Commisso wrote in the statement but pointed at the 21 months left in the players deal and could force the youngster to see out his contract with the Florentines.

Vlahovic believes he can ‘compete’ with Haaland: ‘He’s faster than me, but…’

Vlahovic scored 21 times in Serie A 2020-21 and has continued his fine form in 2021-22, with four goals in the first seven games.

Fiorentina had offered him a new deal worth more than €4m a season, but the player, who is reportedly targeted by Juventus, has decided against signing with the Viola.

“Since my arrival in Florence, I have always promised our fans that I would be honest with them and that I would never make any promises that I couldn’t keep,” Commisso wrote in a statement.

“I would therefore like to update the Viola people on an issue that has been talked about and written about a lot in recent months, namely the renewal of Dusan Vlahovic’s contract.

“As you know, Fiorentina made a very important offer to the player, a contract proposal that would have made him the highest paid player in the history of the club.

“Our offer had also been improved on several occasions over time, to meet the demands of both Dusan and his entourage, but despite our best efforts, the renewal proposal was not accepted.

“In these weeks that I have been here in Florence, I have personally tried to find a solution that could make the lad and the club happy, but, to my great regret, our every attempt and every effort has not been rewarded.

“All that remains for me, and Fiorentina, is to take note of the player’s and his entourage’s will, and consequently identify feasible and adequate solutions in the short term to continue this new and exciting season in the best possible way.

“In any case, Dusan Vlahovic has a contract that binds him to Fiorentina for the next 21 months and we are sure the player, as he has always shown, will give his contribution to help the team achieve its goals, demonstrating the professionalism that has distinguished him since he arrived in Florence, with the utmost respect for our fans, his teammates, the coach and the entire Viola club.”

    This is where the champions League damages medium sized clubs across every league.

    Give vlahovic £10m but still no champions League, so he will move.

    No longer can fiorentina plan for the medium term, as any decent player will move away.

    Shame as the viola is my team. I console myself with having the best kits. (Shut up sampdoria 🙂

    I hope they get a good fee for him as Fiorentina do invest + re-invest a lot of money on players. A new stadium would make them a more attractive proposition to play for + they could even compete for the UCL places this season. I recently got 2 kits + Fiorentina/Sampdoria are the 2 that I picked. Although I give the edge to my Samp kit in terms of preference tbh. : )

    Juve will need an out & out striker like him in January if Lord Cherubini is willing…

    …but “Kean is the future of Juventus” so I may be wrong.

    Ahh, not the news I was hoping for, but it was to be expected. The owner is passionate for the team, and he tries to spend, but he can’t afford to keep the talent that will push the team higher in the table. I liked the kid and thought he looked great in Fiorentina’s colors…at least he’ll stick around a little while longer (and maybe get the team to qualify for Europa League).

    He will be sold in January or over the summer. Commiso is a business man and will never leave money on the table. He’s not fooling anyone by saying I could keep him until the end of his contract.

    How many goals does he have from open play in Serie A this season?

    Based on the Fiorentina fans fans poor behaviour against Koulibaly and how they mock the 39 Juventus fans that died in Heysel, they should send this team to Serie C and burn the stadium down.
