Commisso: Veretout, Montella, Chiesa...

New Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso says ‘perhaps it’s better’ to sell Jordan Veretout, while addressing Vincenzo Montella ‘fake news’ and Federico Chiesa.

Veretout is widely expected to leave Fiorentina this summer, with Napoli heavily linked, whereas it had been reported that Commisso was leaning towards keeping Montella as Coach.

“We’re not too late for the market,” the Italo-American billionaire told La Nazione.

“Right now we’re deciding Veretout’s future. Perhaps it’s better to sell him. I still have to talk to Montella, I’ll see him in the United States.

“Someone wrote that I’d confirmed him: it’s fake news. I want to see him first.”

The 69-year-old previously made it clear that he would try to keep Chiesa, but he was not so certain when asked about the winger by the newspaper.

“I repeat that he won’t be my Baggio,” he stressed.

“I’ll do everything to keep him for at least another year, but a Viola legend asked me a question: why give such a long contract to a lad who will perhaps disappoint next season and is eventually sold for less money than he’s worth now?”
