Over the past few weeks, there have been several reports surrounding Manolo Gabbiadini’s future at Southampton.
On December 3rd, his representative Silvio Pagliari told RadioKissKiss that he would continue in the Premier League after the Saints sacked their manager, Mark Hughes.
A day later, the striker’s agent gave an interview to RMC Sport and the 27-year-old’s agent admitted he will travel to England to discuss his client’s future at St Mary’s.
“Southampton changed coach, so we have to see what happens … A week ago he was not for sale, but today we do not know,” Pagliari explained, as quoted by Tutto Mercato Web.
“We have to see if the scenarios have changed or not. I’ll go to England because in these moments we need clarity, even to then think about the transfer market,”
Rumours about Bologna and Fiorentina have surfaced as the two Serie A clubs are reported to interested in bringing the former Napoli man to Italy. The attacker’s agent was asked about these two sides, but he decided against providing more details.
“With [Pantaleo] Corvino [Fiorentina sporting director] in the past there was something but then it did not materialise ..,” he said.
“At this time, I don’t want to reveal names because as I said before for Gabbiadini to remain in the Premier League would still be important. We have some offers, even from Italy. We will see what will happen.”
Under the former Manchester City manager, the attacker started in only three Premier League games this season.
Whether Hughes’ successor at Southampton will assure Gabbiadini of more minutes or will let the player leave in January is to be seen.
