Both clubs insist they have rights over the Italian international‚Äôs future.
‚ÄúThe lad is exceptional both on the field and off it. He is in a co-ownership agreement with Udinese, so whoever wants him must also speak to their patron Giampaolo Pozzo.‚ÄĚ
However, the Friulani shot back by pointing out the decision is solely in their hands and has nothing to do with Livorno.
‚ÄúCandreva is ours,‚ÄĚ said Udinese director general Sergio Gasparin. ‚ÄúThe player is on loan to Livorno with the option to buy out half his contract, but we also have the counter-option to buy it back.
‚ÄúIt is basically a legal loophole to say he is on loan and so there is absolutely no co-ownership with Livorno. Spinelli is wrong."
