Milenkovic agrees new Fiorentina contract

by | Aug 18, 2021 17:50

Nikola Milenkovic has reportedly agreed a new contract with Fiorentina, despite weeks of negotiations with Tottenham and West Ham.

The defender’s current deal is due to expire in June 2022, so he had been on the market throughout the summer with an asking price of €18m plus bonuses.

At first he seemed very close to West Ham United, then those talks collapsed when Tottenham Hotspur came in with a more lucrative proposal.

However, in a surprise twice, Milenkovic has now decided to snub both of the Premier League sides and extend his contract at the Stadio Artemio Franchi.

The turning point was the Real Betis offer for his fellow centre-back German Pezzella, so selling Milenkovic too would weaken the defence too much.

He is also set to be partnered by fellow Serbia international Matija Nastasic, who can arrive for a minimal fee from Schalke 04.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Tuttomercatoweb and more, Milenkovic will pen a new contract to stay at Fiorentina until June 2024.

    So all these top players that Spurs have been spending months on are either signing new contracts with their clubs or they’re going to sign for someone else, is that what we’re being told? LOL Typical Levy wasting time BS, never had the intention of signing top players. Levy, ENIC and Lewis OUT !!!

    Re tony borg: top player? Milenkovic? Hardly. Spurs ‘interest’ was entirely in the mind of the played’s agent. Spurs have signed Romero and want Torres. Not journeymen like Milenkovic

    This is very exciting and relief news..

  4. Bonucci the boss

    How is Milenkovic a journeyman? Think you’re totally underestimating his ability, Paul F.

    This is great news for Fiorentina. 80m for Vlahovic would be a great sale. 15-20m for Milenkovic certainly would not have been.

    No wonder players don’t want to come to Spurs, Daniel Levy procrastinating on every deal makes the players feel they aren’t really wanted. Who would want to go somewhere they’re not wanted?
    When we go in for a player we should go in all guns blazing and make that player feel special, make them feel like Spurs want and need them.
    It’s going to be interesting, all the players we’ve been chasing for so long, Tomiyasu, Milenkovic, Martinez, Vlahovic and Damsgaard, lets see how many we actually sign and what excuses we get for the ones we don’t sign. Levy and Lewis OUT !! I really have had enough of their BS. Just like Harry Kane has.
