As Roma’s Spanish route looks to keep growing after the club’s sporting director, Walter Sabatini, confirmed that they are very close in landing Barcelon’s young striker, Bojan Krkic, this summer as the Giallorossi have reached an agreement with the players and his club.
Sabatini revealed that news via Sky Italia adding that although things are already heading in the right direction, the negotiation is still being held, although it’s pretty much already in an advanced stage.
“We reached an agreement with the player himself and also with his club. The negotiations are at an advanced stage and we hope that we will now be able to complete everything,” Sabitini said.
This confirmation pretty much supported the latest reports suggesting that Bojan is indeed one of the players that Roma’s new tactician, Luis Enrique, asked for to accompany him and also helped the former Barcelona B coach in his new adventure. Although there is still no official confirmation regarding the fee that the Giallorossi needed to seal the deal, rumors stated that the capital club are shelling out around 10 million Euro for the Spanish under 21 striker and also giving a buy back clause for Barcelona should they want Krkic back in the future.
Krkic’s arrival at Rome should probably be concluded in a couple of days considering the player himself is currently representing Spain’s under 21 team competing in the UEFA Euro u21 competition which is being held in Denmark. Surely should the whole paper talk being finished, the player will need to do the medical check up first at the Italian capital before finally signing the new deal that brings him into the mix of Italian football.
The important question would definitely be asked later on regarding the necessity of Krkic’s signing since Roma actually have several quality forward players that are buy no means inferior to the young Barcelona player, who kinda lost his charm in the last couple seasons. However, the arrival of the 21-years-old player seems to open the gate for several departures and the most likeliest that will leave soon is Montenegro international, Mirko Vucinic, who reportedly has already asking a move away from the capital.
