FIORENTINA SKY- Fiorentina are one of the most active on the incoming market and yesterday after presenting Rolando Mandragora, DS Joe Barone confirmed that he had contacted Dodô’s entourage in the evening. The Tuscan team is looking for a right-back to replace the unredeemed Alvaro Odriozola, who has returned to Real Madrid.
The negotiation with Shaktar had been at an advanced stage for a few weeks, from the end of May Fiorentina had aimed the Brazilian as a replacement for the Spaniard as Real Madrid was demanding so much for the redemption. De Zerbi highly recommended this shot to the Viola, given the great technical and physical skills that the player possesses. The full-back already has a lot of experience in the Champions League and Europa League, he can give a very important hand to Fiorentina in view of the Conference League.
Dodô, is this the right profile for Italian?
Class 99 ′, able offensively thanks to its speed and thrust but less defensively given its physique, it is 1,66 m tall. At Shaktar he made a total of 5 goals and 17 assists, excellent numbers for a full-back. It is inevitably the profile that Vincenzo Italiano was looking for, a player like “Simone Bastoni” with so much experience that he can give in the locker room given the countless appearances he has both in the Champions League and in the Europa League.
A Brazilian in Florence, the figures
The Dodô operation will cost Fiorentina around 14,5 million plus 3,5 million in bonuses, a total of around 18 million euros. For Fiorentina another purchase after Gollini, Mandragora and Jovic and is undoubtedly a candidate to be an “Underdog” of the next championship.
