Aquilani set for New York City FC?

Alberto Aquilani’s Fiorentina contract renewal problems could push him towards MLS club New York City FC.

According to Sportmediaset, Aquilani’s negotiations with the Viola have proved fruitless in reaching a deal for a new contract.

He is unhappy with the offer of €1.5m per season wages, a cut from the current pay of €1.8m.

With his current deal set to expire in June 2015, it is reported Aquilani is targeted by new MLS club New York City FC.

They won’t join Major League Soccer until March 2015, becoming the 20th franchise.

This means former Roma, Liverpool, Milan and Juventus midfielder Aquilani could remain with the Viola on loan and move to the USA in January.
