Rodriguez’ Agent clarifies future

Gianluca Di Domenico, the agent of Swiss international and Wolfsburg left-back Ricardo Rodriguez, spoke to today to clarify the future of his client.

Are there talks with Fiorentina?
“I have not spoken with anyone from Fiorentina, but I believe that his valuation is too high for Fiorentina and that this option isn’t viable.”

He’s rated around double figures?
“About €20m. He’s had a great start to the World Cup with Switzerland (he had two assits against Ecuador), which has driven up his price and the interest. At the end of the competition, if the Swiss do well, he’ll be worth €25m. In Italy, only Juventus, Roma, and maybe Inter could afford him.”
