Borja Valero says he 'knows nothing' about alleged suitors Milan: 'I'd like to retire at Fiorentina'.

The midfielder is one of the top players for the Gigliati, but he is being eyed by his former Coach Vincenzo Montella for the next Rossoneri project.

“Every year things get tougher, and this year it may be even more difficult,” Valero told the Press. “The great teams that have been left behind [Inter and Milan] have greater resources to invest, and keeping up is going to be hard. But we're certainly not afraid.

The midfielder is one of the top players for the Gigliati, but he is being eyed by his former Coach Vincenzo Montella for the next Rossoneri project.

“Every year things get tougher, and this year it may be even more difficult,” Valero told the Press. “The great teams that have been left behind [Inter and Milan] have greater resources to invest, and keeping up is going to be hard. But we're certainly not afraid.

“As for Milan's interest, I know no more than you do. I have no news of any kind. I'd like to pay my compliments to Montella for joining Milan, and I wish him the best.

“Like every other year, it's nice to hear that people are interested in me. But I have a contract with Fiorentina and I'm happy here.

“It's hard to explain what I feel inside, what I've always felt. I came to Fiorentina almost by chance, after a tough demotion.

“People loved me from the very beginning, and this strengthened the bond I have with them. I told them I'd be happy to retire in Florence, because Florence gave me so much.

“My family is extremely happy here, my wife is friends with very many Florentines and that's more important for me than anything.

“Roma? There's never been anything. [Daniele] Prade told me that he made a move for me once when he was at Roma, but I'm not interested in the market until the moment a deal has been closed and signed.”

The Spaniard was then asked about the club's new signings and the final of Euro 2016.

“This is an odd beginning, because we have the cups to play for and yet there are few players and many youngsters. This is a great opportunity for them.

“Yesterday was lived by us like any other final. The Portuguese are happy about their victory. Me, not so much, because I'd placed my bets on France.”
