Tottenham close in on Gennaro Gattuso appointment as Paulo Fonseca talks break down

He was appointed on May 25 but has been locked in a dispute with his new club regarding transfer targets ever since.

But the 43-year-old has now sensationally quit his post after just 23 days with reports suggesting he had a falling out with club owner Rocco Commisso.

Fiorentina said in a statement: “ACF Fiorentina and Mister Rino Gattuso, by mutual agreement, have decided not to follow up on the previous agreements and therefore not to start the next football season together.

“The Company immediately set to work to identify a technical choice that will guide the Viola team towards the results that Fiorentina and the City of Florence deserve.”

5 Juventus stars 'up for sale' including Paulo Dybala ahead of summer clear out

Juventus[1] are set for a huge summer transfer window, with potentially up to five players on the transfer list.

Andrea Pirlo[2] is set to wield the axe and revamp his squad, with several key players available, according to the Daily Mail[3].

The Italian champions are lagging behind in the race for the Serie A table, and have already crashed out of the Champions League at the hands of Porto.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s[4] future is still up in the air, though it seems the Portuguese ace might not be offered a new contract.

It has been suggested that Juve will rebuild the squad around the younger members of the playing squad, and a few of the more experienced players could be moved on.

Mirror Football has taken a look at the five players who have been tipped to depart.

Paulo Dybala

Argentine playmaker Paulo Dybala is out of contract in 2022, and it seems unlikely he’ll sign a new deal at the moment.

He’s been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United[5], with Juve reportedly eager to include him in a swap deal for Paul Pogba.

Dybala is still in talks over a new deal, but it’s been suggested that he could move on this summer in order to free up space on the wage bill, considering he currently takes home a £6.4million yearly salary.

Alex Sandro

Brazilian left-back Alex Sandro is highly likely to leave this summer.

Juve are apparently already looking at new options for his position, with Chelsea[6] outcast Emerson Palmieri considered a cheap option.

Sandro is still under contract until 2023, but it seems he will be moved on with Juve keen to explore other options.

Juan Cuadrado

On the other flank, Juan Cuadrado could also be without a position next season if Andrea Pirlo continues to play a 3-5-2 formation.

The Colombian is about to enter into the final year of his contract, and it seems highly unlikely that he’ll be offered a new deal.

With Cuadrado’s contract set to expire in a year’s time, he’ll likely be offered out of the club.

Aaron Ramsey

Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey has endured a torrid spell in Turin since his free transfer in 2019.

The £400,000-per-week star has been linked with a return to the Premier League[7], and it’s believed that Juventus will let him leave.

Tottenham[8] have apparently asked Juventus over his availability and are considering a move for the former Arsenal[9] star.

Adrien Rabiot

Elsewhere in the midfield, Adrien Rabiot is also set to be allowed to leave.

The Italian joined on a free transfer at the same time as Ramsey, but has failed to have much of an impact.

With a move for Pogba potentially on the cards, the Italian champions are said to be ready to revamp their midfield with Rabiot not a part of their long-term plans.
