D'Agostino still in limbo

Gaetano D'Agostino returns to Udinese after winning a blind auction, but the President admits he's unlikely to stay.

Two summers ago the midfielder was the subject of a bidding war between Juventus and Real Madrid.

On Saturday he was in a blind auction, where both Udinese and Fiorentina put bids into a sealed envelope to resolve the co-ownership deal.

Fiorentina paid €4.5m to buy half his contract a year ago, but the Friulani bought that back for only €110,000.

“Fiorentina offered €50,000 and we bid €110,000,” explained President Franco Soldati on Radio Blu. “Therefore he is our player again.

“Now we will evaluate the situation along with Coach Francesco Guidolin and work out what is to be done.

“The same goes for Antonio Floro Flores. In the next few weeks, we will look carefully at all the players in the squad and decide what to do.”
