Atletico Madrid have reportedly reached an agreement with Fiorentina and Dusan Vlahovic, the future of the Serbian is now in the hands of patron Rocco Commisso.

The Viola management have reportedly reached an agreement with the Colchoneros, as Il Corriere dello Sport reports the Spanish side have offered €70m for the 21-year-old.

Vlahovic had his real breakthrough in 2020-21, scoring 21 times in Serie A and has attracted interest from some of the giants both in Italy and abroad.

Inter have been linked with the centre-forward, should Lautaro Martinez leave San Siro, something that seems more and more unlikely.

The newspaper claims Atletico Madrid have also reached an agreement with the Serbia international’s agent and everything seems set for a move abroad this summer.

But the Viola President Commisso has the final say and the American businessman returned to Italy this morning.

He will have to make a decision on Vlahovic’s future, and the report highlights he has always expressed his wish to keep the youngster in Florence.

Vlahovic started the season by scoring a brace in the Coppa Italia match against Cosenza on Friday. Fiorentina start the new season against Roma on Sunday.

    What good is €70 million if they will be playing in Serie B next season. He CAN’T be sold as he is pivotal to Fiorentina’s progress.

    If Viola sells Vlahovic, no other striker will be bought to replace him.
    I’m sure of it.

    I can’t help but think it is yet another young player making a move too early for too much money. The kid had an outstanding season last season, but haven’t Atleti learned from real madrid’s error when signing Jovic? Gone are the years of a player having 2-3 consistent seasons before making a move. You could say that he will become more expensive, but there is no guarantee that last season wasn’t a flash in the pan. New league, new style of play, and a much more demanding manager tactically. He has one bad season at Atleti and he’ll then have to prove himself all over again. He’ll still be 22 this time next year. He should stay at Fiorentina, and develop further.

    Spot on, Rosario.

    Only a crazy person would reject such an offer for a one-season wonder. He has all the potential in the world but whether he’ll be able to show it in a consistent basis and grow further is another question.

    Without Vlahovic they won’t beat Rioma, with him Yes.

    They are indeed loosing something they should building around.

    I am still amazed how Lotito kept SMS, Milinkovis must love Lazio and living in Rome.

    look how halland developed after his first explosive season @dortmund
    Vlahovic can do the same

    Serie A becoming a true selling farmers league. All top talents are leaving or have left or trying to leave. What does that tell you, folks? I swear, Ronaldo would pay another club just to get out! Only old folks like Giroud and Ibra are coming in. Really really sad days.

    At €70MM sell him now. He is 21 and can be really great, but is still unproven.

    Unlikely the fee will go up from there in future and it is not like he wants to stay long term. Even if you extend his deal he wants a release clause of no higher than €70MM.

    Every player has his price and in the current climate it is better to sell high and re-invest with deals available from many cash strapped clubs.

    I have no issue with selling Hakimi, Lukaku and Vlahovic at those prices. They give the clubs cash injection and ability to replace, knowing fully well all their respective heads were already turned by massive wage increases.

    @Rosario… very well said.

  11. Bonucci the boss

    Totally agree with @Rosario.

    It would be a terrific sale for Fiorentina. Remember that he’s making some big contract demands as well. Yes, there’s the valid point that they must be careful with relegation, but they could do a lot with 70m. It’s a mad fee to pay, even though I think Vlahovic could go on to do very well in his career. I also agree that he’s not likely to ever go for much more than that. People so often assume that these young players just skyrocket, and it’s usually not the case.
