Kevin Mirallas “gave up on a lot of money to join Fiorentina” after Everton scuppered a move two years earlier. “I’ll rediscover the joy of playing football in Serie A.”
The Belgium international arrived from Everton in August, on loan with option to buy for a total of €7.5m.
“(Director of sport Pantaleo) Corvino had already tried to bring me to Florence two years ago, but at the time Everton asked for crazy money and quite rightly Fiorentina left it,” Mirallas told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
