Fiorentina to ‘ignore’ transfer window

Fiorentina sporting director Daniele Pradè suggests the club will not make any major signings in January.

“We already have an important squad,” the official stated. “Our new arrivals will be Mario Gomez and Josip Ilicic once they have returned from injury.”

The duo were netted from Bayern Munich and Palermo respectively, but they’ve been halted by fitness issues this term.

Pradè was also questioned on the future of key wide attacker Juan Cuadrado, a man co-owned with Udinese.

“There has already been a discussion with Udinese,” the former Roma official continued. “Let’s wait until January.

“Udinese owner Gino Pozzo and our President Andrea Della Valle will see each other face-to-face to sort out the basis of an agreement.”

Reports recently suggest that Pradè himself could be on the move with Milan said to be interested in his services.

“Rumours of this kind are always gratifying, but there is no truth in them,” he concluded.

“My contract expires in 2014, but there are no problems between intelligent people. We’ll talk about it at the right time.”
