Transfer saga drags on as talks with player’s father postponed.
A meeting between Fiorentina officials and Adem Ljajic’s father has been postponed as speculation continues to link him with a move to AC Milan.
The 21-year-old is expected to make a decision this summer on whether or not he wishes to renew his contract with the club, with his current deal set to expire next summer.
Fiorentina owner Andrea Della Valle has made it clear that Ljajic must either accept the Viola’s offer of an extension or risk being placed on the market.
While that was followed by a formal offer of €8m from rivals Milan, Fiorentina have since rejected their bid and slammed the Rossoneri for their conduct in the matter.
Answers were expected to come from the meeting between Samir Ljajic and Fiorentina officials on Tuesday afternoon, but as reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport, the meeting has now been postponed leading to further speculation over the Serbian international’s future.
It is understood that Fiorentina’s offer of an extension includes a minimum release clause fee of €12m, however his agent Fali Ramadani has rejected that idea and suggested that the club lower it to €8m.
While Milan remain interested it would appear that Ljajic’s representatives are pushing for a move to San Siro this summer, but Della Valle has previously revealed that the player himself had told him he was willing to stay in Florence.
With the meeting postponed, it is unclear at this stage as to whether he will sign a new deal or not, with further answers expected over the next few days.
Meanwhile, it is believed that Milan have now switched their attention to make Ljajic their priority ahead of the new season, with CSKA Moscow star Keisuke Honda expected to arrive in January on a free transfer.
