The 30-year-old central defender had one year left in his previous deal but the new agreement will keep him with the Florence club until June 2017.

"I am delighted," Gonzalo told accffiorentina.it. "There were never any doubts from my part.

"I had other offers but as soon as I was told that Fiorentina still wanted me, I immediately accepted."

Gonzalo joined Fiorentina in 2012 from Spanish outfit Villarreal and scored four goals in 33 league appearances to help the Viola finish fourth in Serie A.

"We want to improve with respect to last season," said Gonzalo.

"It would be fantastic if next season we can finish in the top three and qualify for the Champions League."

Gonzalo is hoping Colombia winger Juan Guillermo Cuadrado will remain at Fiorentina next season.

Cuadrado has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona this summer while the 26-year-old is also a reported target of Bayern Munich and Arsenal.

"It depends only on Cuadrado," added Gonzalo. "He has so many offers.

"Juan is an intelligent person, who has given his all for Fiorentina.

"For us, he is obviously important as he is the best player in the world in his role.

"If he stays, we will all be very happy but it will be difficult to keep him."

Fiorentina, coached by Vincenzo Montella, will compete in next season's Europa League.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
