Riccardo Montolivo’s time with his current club, Fiorentina, set to meet its end, but his future club remains uncertain at the moment despite Ac Milan reportedly being the top candidate in netting the Italian international.
However, latest reports from Italy suggested that the Rossoneri might be facing tough competition in acquiring the ex-Atalanta player’s signature after Juventus are being rumored to hijack Montolivo’s potential move to Milanello.
According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juventus’ director general, Beppe Marrota are planning to tempt Fiorentina in releasing Montolivo this January by offering some players that the Viola might be interested in. The offer might really be interesting for the Florence based outfit especially it they do have an affection for a certain unused members from the Bianconeri, as the Turin giant does have several quality players, who might be considering to leave the club this winter.
However, if previous rumors that said Montolivo already had a personal agreement with Milan is true than Juventus’s attempt in hijacking the player might be useless, since it’s almost impossible to change that situation. Of course, the Bianconeri could try to make a better personal offer for the midfielder, but the fact that Montolivo has already turned down As Roma’s proposal this summer, kinda gives the impression that he already set his mind on a certain club.
Still, nothing is concrete for the moment as Montolivo himself has already stated that he will explain more about his future in January, where the transfer market re-opens. The latest news stated that Milan are eying to pick him up in the winter because the long term injuries that hits Gennaro Gattuso and Mathieu Flamini, the former has already trained again but his condition is still being monitored at the moment.
