Fiorentina Quickly Respond to Milan Interest in Goalie

Milan had started to eye Pietro Terracciano for a backup role next season, but Fiorentina will not lose him for nothing. The Viola announced over the weekend to have reached an agreement to extend his contract until 2025. His previous one would have expired in June.

As per Gianluca Di Marzio, the goalkeeper will earn about €1M annually, including add-ons. His salary almost tripled. He joined the Gigliati from Empoli on loan in January 2019 and then permanently on a free the ensuing summer. He initially backed up Alban Lafont and Bartlomiej Dragowski. The 32-year-old took over once the Polish teammate went down with an early thigh injury last season. He has continued to feature regularly in the current one even though the club signed Pierluigi Gollini during the recent transfer market window.

Terracciano commented on his extension with Fiorentina on Instagram.

“It’s not easy to describe the emotion I am feeling in a few lines, and I can just say that Florence is my home. I thank the club for renewing their human and professional trust in me and my agents Federico Pastorello and Andrea Moretti for what they have done for me over the years. I promise that I will give my whole for these colors. Forza Viola forever.”

Our Take on Terracciano Re-Upping with Fiorentina

The shot-stopper has been a revelation in the past two years. He was labeled as a Serie B specialist before Empoli and his current side gave him a shot. He was wise to take the deal rather than wait for offers from bigger sides. In all likelihood, he wouldn’t have had a real chance to compete for the starting job if he had moved.
