Fiorentina pondered move for AC Milan midfielder

Abate’s agent has confirmed the Viola’s interest in his client.

“Abate to Fiorentina was a working hypothesis which I actually suggested, but what resulted from it is private,” Andrea D’Amico told Radio Blu.

“Could it happen in the future? Who knows? It could be a road that we go down at some stage.

“However, transfer objectives are chosen due to a wide variety of factors therefore it is always hard to predict what will happen.”
