Stefano Pioli has admitted for the first time that Federico Bernardeschi could leave Fiorentina this summer.
Bernardeschi is believed to be closing in on a move to Juventus, and while Fiorentina have repeatedly made it clear that he would be going nowhere, Pioli concedes the winger may be off after all.
“At the end of last season, we knew that a cycle was over, that players could leave, and Bernardeschi is one of those players,” the Coach told Premium Sport.
“Regardless of what happens, the team will go on.”
