Italian giants Fiorentina have branded the actions of AC Milan as unacceptable, inopportune and late as they attempt to prize Serbian midfielder Adem Ljajic from Florence.
According to reports emerging from Italy, the perennial Serie A contenders have tabled an € 8 million for the Serbian attacker and have also reportedly agreed personal terms with the player despite the insistence of the player’s club that the bid falls well short of their valuation of the player.
The Viola has criticized the actions of the Milanese club’s CEO Adriano Galliani for violating the rules and took to the popular social networking website Twitter to condemn the actions of the club. The club has also issues a statement in order to ward off AC Milan off one of their prized assets as they look to hold on to a player who, they believe will add a lot of punch to the new look attacking lineup that the club has assembled with star signing Mario Gomez from Bayern Munich.
Fiorentina issued a statement on the club’s website where they have blasted the Milanese giants’ approach of a player they do not consider selling and have attempted to warn them off the player. This is not the first time that the club has found itself in hot water as it tries to bid far lower for a player who is not considered a sellable asset by his club.
Recently, Russian club CSKA Moscow had blasted AC Milan for demeaning the club and the player when they bid as low as € 2 million for Japanese international playmaker Keisuke Honda. Milan signed midfielder Riccardo Motolivo last summer after the player ran down his contract with the club and the deal came under immense scrutiny with the club thought to have tapped the player up beforehand.
