Fiorentina’s Luca Toni could be a Bayern Munich player as early as Wednesday, according to reports in Germany.
The Italian club announced on Monday that the prolific striker was leaving the club after making it clear he no longer wanted to play in Florence.
A 13 million euro deal has reportedly been agreed with Bayern Munich and representatives from the German club are due in Italy in midweek to complete the final details.
Toni apparently rejected moves to other Serie A clubs out of a sign of respect for Fiorentina.
“It is a beautiful gesture to the club and the city of Florence that Toni has decided to join Bayern Munich,” said Fiorentina president Andrea Della Valle, while also confirming the deal.
The 30-year-old scored 49 goals in two seasons for Fiorentina and is part of Bayern’s drastic rebuilding plan after they only managed to qualify for the Uefa Cup next season.
