Sandro Mencucci Expects Alberto Gilardino, Juan Vargas & Sebastien Frey To Stay At Fiorentina

The Viola official believes the impressive trio will stay with the Tuscan outfit..
Fiorentina administrator Sandro Mencucci has explained that he expects star trio Alberto Gilardino, Juan Manuel Vargas, and Sebastien Frey to remain with the club next season. Gilardino has been linked with a move to rivals Napoli while Vargas has constantly been tipped for a departure to Real Madrid over the last few months.

"Unsellable are those who show a great desire to stay at Fiorentina and with Alberto so far this has occurred," he was quoted as saying by Il Corriere dello Sport outside of a Lega Calcio meeting.

"[Vargas and Frey] are on vacation. I don't think there is anything to clarify between us and them. Before the World cup there were some 'inklings' but now everything has settled down."

Fiorentina did not qualify for Europe this past season, finishing in 10th spot in Serie A with just 47 points. Without being involved in continental play, it was feared some of their stars would opt to leave the club this summer.
