Roma Eye Bonera Swoop to Replace Burdisso

Nicolas Burdisso: 300 (volte scarso)As Roma suffered a big blow for their back line as Nicolas Burdisso picked up a nasty injury recently which will force the Argentinian to be sidelined for most likely the whole season.

This condition reportedly urged the Giallorossi to make contact with Ac Milan, requesting the availability of Daniele Bonera, who is well liked by the capital club’s management, to replace Burdisso until the season ends.

Obviously the deal will only be made in January and in order to make things much smoother, reports from Italy suggested that Roma are willing to include Marco Borriello as part of the negotiation, knowing that Milan are looking for a temporary replacement for Antonio Cassano. Borriello, who was actually being sold by the Rossoneri to Rome, isn’t really in the plan of Giallorossi’s tactician, Luis Enrique, so there’s a big possibility that the ex-Genoa striker won’t reject a return back to Milanello.

However, it remains to see on whether Milan would accept the offer since they might still need Bonera’s contribution, considering the frequent injury problems that have been hitting the Rossoneri players this season. Bonera’s flexibility in playing every roles at the back, usually provides a solution for the Rossoneri if they’re in need of defensive replacement and this season, the ex-Parma man has actually been playing pretty well.

Should Milan isn’t keen on letting Bonera go, rumors also claimed that the Giallorossi might be asking for Rossoneri’s Colombian defender, Mario Yepes, instead. That’s also a bit difficult since Yepes is actually well liked at Milanello, as the veteran has been performing pretty consistent since arriving from Chievo last summer on a free transfer. Another potential names being thrown away in the press are, Leonardo Bonucci (Juventus), Michele Canini (Cagliari) and Daniele Gastadello (Sampdoria).
