One of the longest transfer saga in the Serie A has finally ended after As Roma have finally find an agreement with Inter Milan to sign their whole summer target, Nicolas Burdisso.
According to the media in Italy, the Argentinian player have finally been brought to Roma with a fee around 8 million that will be paid in three installment.
This purchasing have been waited for a while by Roma especially their coach,Claudio Ranieri, who is a keen admirer of Burdisso, surely the official signing would give a boost for the club that will start their season later today against Cesena. Earlier this week, Ranieri was already pessimistic about the opportunity in acquiring the player that the Giallorosssi loaned from Inter last season.
The deal was hanging on the balance the whole summer after the Nerazzurri doesn’t want to lower down their asking price for the player despite the awful financial condition Roma’s having. However, after the transfer market nearing its final day on August 31, it seems that both parties can finally reached an agreement.
Previously there is a big worry coming from Roma’s camp after Juventus entering the market for Burdisso with an offer that Inter could not resist. However, it seems that the all around Argentinian defender already set his heart on the capital club as he has refused other offers and confirming that he only wants to play for the Giallorossi.
Now it looks like Burdisso’s persistence has been acknowledge by Inter’s management that obviously can’t keep on holding a player that they doesn’t really need and doesn’t want to play for them. With Burdisso’s arrival, Roma might also end their transfer move this season as the club doesn’t actually have a lot of cash to spend unless they can sell some players.
Moreover, the defender’s arrival at Olympico would pretty much satisfied Ranieri and probably can be satisfied with his current team despite not making lots of purchases this summer. Burdisso will also join his brother Guillermo who was already signed from Rosario Central earlier this month.
