No January switch for Montolivo

One of the agents representing Fiorentina’s Riccardo Montolivo has rejected talk of a January move to Milan.

The Italian international, whose contract expires in June, has again been paired with the Rossoneri given their problems in midfield right now.

“As far as I know, there has been no type of request at all from the Rossoneri during this period,” Carlo Pallavicino told Lady Radio.

“It’s true that there are still 10 days to go in the transfer market, but an operation of this kind would take some time.

“I also think that Montolivo would like to leave Florence in a better manner than the unhappy reality that he is going through right now.”

The Viola are struggling this season. They are currently 13th in the standings, but only six points above the relegation zone.

Montolivo, signed by Fiorentina from Atalanta in the summer of 2005, has refused to extend his contract at the Stadio Franchi.

Milan remain the favourites to sign him on a Bosman at the end of the campaign.
