Franck Ribéry is about to sign for Fiorentina . As published by the German newspaper Sport Bild , the former French international and the Italian club would have already reached an agreement and would only need to stamp the signature on a contract that would link the former Bayern for two seasons with the viola team . There he will be under the command of Vincenzo Montella, former Sevilla coach who currently directs the Serie A record.
As several media wrote, the intention of the French end was to sign a contract for at least two more seasons , a wish that Fiorentina did not hesitate to fulfill. Daniele Pradi, the entity’s sports director, already warned that the club could not pay what clubs offered from Russia or Saudi Arabia , but finally managed to convince Ribéry of a project that will keep him two more years in the elite.
Bayern was aware that his star was still in top form and therefore even offered a renewal for another season . This is what Gianni Bianchi, Bayern physiotherapist and Ribéry’s rhythm says, in an interview with Di Marzio. Of course, Ribéry himself wanted to continue feeling important and did not have the feeling of being an unquestionable piece within the team led by Niko Kovac. That is why he decided to put an end to twelve years at the Allianz Arena that culminated in the 2013 triplet. Now a new chapter in Italy will begin.
