Prade update on Biraghi and Ribery

Fiorentina director Daniele Pradè warns “Cristiano Biraghi wants Inter, but there are issues to be sorted out. Franck Ribery is considering his options.”

The Viola fought back from a goal down to beat Monza 3-1 in the Coppa Italia Third Round this evening, but Biraghi was on the bench amid reports of an imminent move to San Siro.

“Biraghi wants to go to Inter, but there are many issues to be sorted out first,” sporting director Pradè told reporters in a Press conference.

“The counter-part in the deal was supposed to be Dalbert, but he prefers a return to Nice. It won’t be Matteo Politano.”

Fiorentina have also made an offer to free agent Ribery, whose contract with Bayern Munich expired.

“We like Ribery very much, but at this moment he is considering his options. Unfortunately, we cannot match the wages of the Arabian or Russian clubs.

“If he wants to continue being a football player at a high level, then we’re waiting for him. Nobody is talking about Giovanni Simeone, but we are not looking for a striker.”
