Commisso confirms that star duo linked with Milan could leave: “We will see next week”

By Oliver Fisher -

Fiorentina president Rocco Commisso has hinted that he may not be able to hang on to two of his star players in Federico Chiesa and Nikola Milenkovic.

Milan are in desperate need of a reinforcement in the centre of defence, and among the names most frequently linked has been Milenkovic, though most sources have reported that Fiorentina are not willing to sell or would demand a fee of €40m to do so.

Meanwhile, Chiesa is a player that also continues to be linked with Milan. He has a contract which is set to expire in 2022 and with no signs of a renewal, Commisso’s hand may be forced if a big offer comes in.

At the end of Inter-Fiorentina, Commisso spoke to DAZN about Federico Chiesa’s future, and dropped a hint that he could yet leave.

“Let’s see. In the last week everything is possible. Today he is with Fiorentina, the transfer market is not over yet. We will see next week,” he said (via MilanNews).

“This morning, however, I said that Inter are very strong, the bench is almost as much as we pay our team. Fiorentina must go on with its concept of making stadiums and other things, so we can also sign better players.”

Speaking to Sky Italia, Commisso also confirmed there is uncertainty surrounding Milenkovic too.

“To this day everyone remains, tomorrow I don’t know. I don’t even know if I’m alive tomorrow (laughs),” he said.
