Joe Barone, General Manager of Fiorentina, has taken to the club’s official channels to clear the air on the recent transfer market gossips surrounding the club.
Key words from Barone: “The market is always a peculiar time, there’s a lot of work involved; however, I want to set the record straight for the club, the team, and the players: Jonathan Ikoné is not for sale, he won’t be moving to Roma, he remains with Fiorentina. So, I urge all the fans to stand with the team. Jonathan stepped up with courage and took responsibility for taking a penalty when we were 1-0 down, he missed and actions like these have implications. But the team assists and loves him, the market is about details and in the coming days, there will be some new arrivals”, he stated.
These comments reported on the Fiorentina official broadcast channels debunk speculation regarding a possible transfer of the French forward, Jonathan Ikoné, reassuring fans of his continued stay at the club.
