Alberto Gilardino to Fiorentina
It has been confirmed today by Fiorentina sporting director Pantaleo Corvino that a deal has been made to bring Italian striker Alberto Gilardino to Fiorentina from AC Milan.
Gilardino scored 9 goals in 40 games for Milan this year and was stuck on the bench for most of the season playing behind Filippo Inzaghi and Pato. This past season was a big step down for the player that won Serie A player of the year in 2005.
Gilardino is still young at only 25 years old and should be a starter for Fiorentina playing alongside Adrian Mutu. Don't be surprised to see Gilardino's name among the leaders in goals next season in the Serie A.
