Issues around agent fees and commission has been a key reason behind Fiorentina failing to get Dusan Vlahovic to sign a new deal.
This comes from La Repubblica, who carry on from Rocco Commisso’s statement about Vlahovic not signing a new deal. The paper states that the La Viola president personally tried to strike an agreement with the agent of Vlahovic and the most recent proposal sought to extend his deal till 2026 and the player would earn €4 million per year in the first season and €5 million per year in the seasons from the second onwards.
The total contract was valued at €48 million – the highest in Fiorentina history. The agreement was reached and the decision was made to include a €75 million release clause. At the point of signing though, everything blew apart. The agents wanted commissions of €5 million, also demanding a certain percentage of future resale.
