Manchester City goalkeeper Costel Pantilimon has dropped hints he’ll join Fiorentina. “Serie A would be a dream for me. My agents are working on it.”
The Romanian shot-stopper impressed when called upon at Eastlands, but he remains second choice and made it clear he’d like to go where he can shine.
“My experience with City is not over yet, but I do want to talk to the directors,” he told La Nazione newspaper.
“I am 26 years old, in the prime of my career, and I certainly can’t be happy with playing five games per season. I thought I’d at least play the FA Cup Final, but instead....
“Interest from Fiorentina? My agents are working on it, as I am focused only on my football. Bogdan Lobont and Cristian Chivu told me great things about Florence and Serie A would be a dream for me.
“I also talked with Matija Nastasic about the Viola, while the team currently has my former Manchester City teammates David Pizarro and Stefan Savic.”
