Inter Defender Burdisso No Longer Being Tracked By Fiorentina - Report

It seems that with the arrival of Brazilian international Lucio at Inter, Nicolas Burdisso is likely to be leaving. However, his next destination will not be Fiorentina, according to Calciomercato.

The Viola no longer have an interest in acquiring the Argentine after he snubbed a move to the Stadio Artemio Franchi last season and they also had trouble dealing with his agent Fernando Hidalgo during another transfer saga.

Hidalgo is also the agent of veteran striker Hernan Crespo, who was on the verge of joining the Viola before joining Genoa at the eleventh hour and sporting director Pantaleo Corvino has not forgotten the incident.

Thus, Fiorentina have decided to turn their attention to other options, but have so far failed to lure their top target Luisao from Benfica.

Burdisso is currently with Inter on their pre-season tour of the United States, but will likely find opportunities hard to come by with Ivan Cordoba, Walter Samuel, Marco Materazzi, Christian Chivu and the previously mentioned Lucio all vying for a spot in the starting XI.
