According to Calcio Mercato, parties are not aligned in terms of a renewal between Fiorentina and captain German Pezzella.
On his arm he wears the Fiorentina captain’s armband, the one worn by late late teammate Davide Astorias. There are no doubts about Pezzella’s commitment to Florence, a profound relationship also marked by the death of a great friend, as well as a fellow in the department. Yet, the future of the Argentine defender in purple is increasingly in question, with a contract expiring in 2022 and agreement to renew it which, to date, seems very far away.
RENEWAL IN STALL – No contract in recent times between parties, despite the promise at the beginning of the season by president Commisso, to lock Pezzella and Milenkovic. In coming weeks, the agent of the Argentine Martin Guastadisegno, is expected in Florence to talk about the future of his client. Which in recent years has been followed with interest by several top clubs, including Serie A.
BETWEEN MILAN AND NAPLES – In the summer of 2020, Milan had been the closest team to Pezzella. In the first games of the season, the former River Plate had sat on the bench watching his teammates, precisely because of a situation to be defined on the market. The Rossoneri, a few hours after the end of a session, made a concrete attempt with the Viola, without however being able to convince them to deprive themselves of another leader, in the same moments in which Federico Chiesa was moving to Juventus.
In the view of the transfer market, Pezzella can represent an opportunity for Maldini and Massara: he is esteemed by former manager Pioli, and can be an excellent name to complete the department in the event of the possible sale of captain Romagnoli. Milan will think about this decision, as well as Napoli and Roma, as a lot of changes are expected in defense for the Rossoneri.
Pezzella will be turning 30 during the transfer market this summer. With Simon Kjaer having just turned 32 last month, investing in another veteran defender could be costly long-term for Milan. The Fiorentina defender has appeared in 26 league matches this season with one goal on his stat sheet.
