Riccardo Montolivo: I will not sign a new deal with Fiorentina

Montolivo has rejected a new deal with the Viola as speculation over his future gathers momentum
Riccardo Montolivo will not sign a contract extension at Fiorentina but revealed there is no agreement with Inter or Juventus who have been linked with the 26-year-old.

The midfielder was offered a 2016 extension on top of his current 2012 agreement several months ago, but he delayed his decision.

Fiorentina recently demanded answers from the Italian international, and he has revealed his final decision.

"I have decided not to renew my contract," he told Italian news agency ANSA on Monday.

"Fiorentina have always been my priority. I love this shirt, but the doubts that saw me take time to reflect have still not gone away.

"It is not a question of money or the project, it is just that something has changed – the atmosphere and the Della Valle family who for work reasons have moved further and further away."

Moving forward, the midfielder said there is nothing ready with the clubs who have been tracking him.

"I want to make it clear that I haven’t agreed anything with any other club," he added.

"I put myself at the total disposal of Fiorentina so we can decide in unison the right decision for the future.

"Nevertheless, if the club want to keep me until the end of my contract in 2012 then there will be no problems. I’ll stay with joy."

The Viola finished midtable this term following a less than perfect season.
