Next – but only for less money: The ACF Fiorentina has offered veteran Franck Ribery a contract extension by one year at reduced pay. That reports the Gazzetta dello Sport.
Accordingly, club owner Rocco Commisso wants to reduce the basic salary of the former Bayern Munich professional from the current four million to two million euros. Ribery wanted to take the time to review the offer, it said.
The winger is said to have no shortage of offers despite his advanced footballer age of 38 years. Among other things, Lazio and second division AC Monza, with which Kevin-Prince Boateng and Mario Balotelli are under contract, are interested.
Ribery moved from Bayern to Italy in 2019, and his family has been living in Munich again since last September. Therefore, according to the Italian media, a return to the Bundesliga does not seem entirely out of the question. For the Fiorentina, Ribery has scored five goals in 47 competitive games and prepared ten more.
