Fiorentina’s president, Andrea Della Valle stated that Romanian striker Adrian Mutu wont be allowed to leave Artemio Franchi which means that Goran Pandev will not join the famous Viola as many Macedonian media reported these days.
“The case is closed, Mutu stays in Firenze. He has understood the importance of our project. You know what we mean, that we don’t want to leave any polemics. Today we have been confronted: we have spoken about values, ideas, attachment to the shirt, and I have no doubts in him.” – said Antonio Della Valle for the Italian daily paper La Gazzetta dello Sport.
These days, Macedonian newspapers had written about the huge possibility for Pandev to join Fiorentina for 15 million Euros since Mutu was a target for Luciano Spalletti and AS Roma, and than ACF Fiorentina had to find an adequate cover for him.
Pandev is target of several European clubs, but still there is no serious offer, while SS Lazio’s chairman Claudio Lotito is still playing with fire and he isn’t offering Pandev a new contract, good enoug as Pandev requests.
