However, Mutu's agent has hinted the striker will commit his long-term future to the club once he returns to Florence.
"Fiorentina came to us and offered to improve and extend Mutu's deal and we appreciated this effort," agent Alessandro Moggi told Radio Kiss Kiss.
"We are waiting for Adrian to come back from his holiday to clarify the situation. Fiorentina knows he's an important player who shows a big commitment to the jersey."

"Roma? We have never been contacted, Fiorentina never got offers for him," Moggi concluded.
