Corvino: 'Borja Valero for life'

Fiorentina director Pantaleo Corvino expects a “beautiful game” with Milan and is open to Borja Valero’s contract extension.

It kicks off at 19.45 UK time (18.45 GMT), follow the build-up and action on our LIVEBLOG.

“It’s complicated for Fiorentina, but also for Milan. These are two well-equipped teams and up to a high standard. I hope for a beautiful game and a great Viola performance,” Corvino told Mediaset Premium.

“Khouma Babacar is at the apex of his mental and behavioural form. Anything that comes after this is bound to be an important step up to show his quality.

“At times, when Paulo Sousa wants to shake things up, he can play Babacar alongside Nikola Kalinic rather than as an alternative to him.”

This week Spanish midfielder Borja Valero shook off transfer speculation by declaring he wanted to see out his career in Florence.

“If Borja Valero really wants to end his career at Fiorentina, we are happy to discuss the contract extension. He’s an extraordinary lad who deserves all his success.”
