The Rojiblancos are set to give Fiorentina €10 million and Mario Suarez in exchange for the Montenegro international
Stefan Savic has bid farewell to his Fiorentina team-mates ahead of his proposed move to Atletico Madrid.
The Montenegro international still has four years to run on his Viola contract and had been scheduled to travel with the Viola to New York on Sunday for the Serie A side’s pre-season tour of the United States.
However, Savic has been withdrawn from the squad as he is now set to fly to Madrid on Monday to complete a transfer that will see Fiorentina pocket €10 million and Mario Suarez move to the Artemio Franchi.
Indeed, Fiorentina posted a video on their official website on Sunday showing an emotional Savic saying goodbye to his colleagues at airport as they prepared to depart for America.
The 24-year-old Savic joined Fiorentina in 2012 from Manchester City and quickly established himself as a first-team regular in Tuscany.
