Fiorentina had a very nice market session. We have a solid team now.
Of course not the same strength as City, and with no European tournament.
But it may be more difficult to lure JoJo out of a team with a very solid defense, and Borja Valero, Pizarro, Aquilani and Mati Fernandez in the midfield.
Now he's THE star in a team that will compete for a UCL spot, so he may become a much more valuable piece for next year's summer market.
Yep, looks like Goal.com was premature in reporting the deal was "close". Fiorentina has put a very nice team together, that's for sure. Pizarro didn't play much at City last season but he made a nice impact when he got minutes. Borja Valero is an excellent player from the Villarreal games I've seen, and Aquilani obviously is a capable midfielder himself. I'll definitely have to watch some of their games this year.
