Gilardino: 'I want to stay, but...'

Alberto Gilardino insists “I want to stay at Fiorentina, but we'll see in the summer” after links with Juventus.

The striker could walk away if the Viola fail to qualify for Europe for a second consecutive campaign.

“I have another two years on the contract with Fiorentina and would like to respect it. We'll see in the summer,” he told La Repubblica.

“I already reiterated last week in the Press conference that I want to stay at Fiorentina.

“I am happy here, everyone is fond of me and my family is also settled.”

Gila had also been linked with a January departure following Fabio Quagliarella's injury at Juventus.
