The relationship between Nikola Maksimovic and Torino seems to be deteriorating by the day as the Serb has infuriated newly appointed boss, Sinisa Mihajlovic, by skipping training.
Nikola Maksimovic has been on the radar of a few high level clubs this summer, including Napoli and Chelsea. La Stampa reports that the reason for Maksimovic ditching training is due to the fact he would like a move away from the granata.
Reportedly, Maksimovic has skipped training to force a move to Serie A runners up, Napoli. As reported by La Stampa, the player would like to play in a higher level environment and more important competitions with high objectives. Therefore, skipping practice was not an issue of fitness, rather an issue of the transfer market.
Nikola Maksimovic is almost certain to be sold this summer as skipping training has infuriated Torino coach, Sinisa Mihajlovic. Therefore, his place on the squad has been affected. If Maksimovic does stay at Torino and these reports hold true, expect the Serbian defender to find playing time to be very thin.
