Viola issue Montolivo ultimatum

Clubs interested in signing Riccardo Montolivo have been given until Friday to do so by Fiorentina, reports are suggesting.

The player is available for sale given that his contract expires next June and he's refused to sign a new deal.

Although the Viola could lose him for nothing next summer, the club are keen to put an end to the uncertainty over his future.

The Viola are understood to have rejected a number of offers for the player which they deemed as too low.

It's understood that Milan are keen on netting the Italian international, but they're being patient in an effort to sign him for as low a fee as possible.
