has announced that he has put up for sale less than two years after he purchased the club.

The Italian-American businessman bought the Gigliati from the Della Valle family in June 2019, but he has often encountered a number of difficulties during his presidency, especially with the local council regarding a new stadium for the Viola.

“The owner paid €22 million,” Commisso said in his press conference.

“The Della Valles paid nothing to purchase Fiorentina, same with and at their clubs. And how much did the owner of pay? About €60m.

“I instead spent real money. I made debts in America and I brought the money. Now it’s enough. I have the intention to put up for sale.

“I spent €170m to buy it. Then €80m to rebuild it, then another €85m for the sports centre.

“I want to go back to America and sell to Florentines, to those who have money.

“This offer ends within ten days. I export the brand to the USA, I promote it, and here in Florence there are only attacks on me. Why?”
