According to reports in Italy, Dusan Vlahovic’s agents want to include a release clause below €50m in the striker’s new contract, while Joe Barone warns: ‘It takes two to tango…’
The contract of the Serbia international expires in June 2023, but negotiations don’t seem to go the right way.
Although La Viola are working to extend their star’s deal at the Artemio Franchi, Fiorentina director Joé Barone warned the striker while talking to journalists from the club’s training retreat in Moena: “It takes two to tango. One is not enough. We are working for the renewal, but I can’t predict whether it will happen tomorrow, today or in a few months,” Barone claimed.
