The agent of Marash Kumbulla, Gianni Vitali, spoke today to Corriere dello Sport and talked about the young defender’s recent move to Roma, which was made official last week.
The Albanian international joined the Giallorossi on an initial two-year loan deal followed by an obligation to buy.
How did the negotiation begin?
First the clubs Roma and Hellas Verona spoke, then (Roma CEO) Fienga called me and we quickly reached an agreement. I thought the club was very professional and very organised.
Is it true that Roma snatched him from Lazio?
Many teams made inquiries, but Marash was not in talks with other clubs — also because of the fact that Hellas Verona placed an important price tag on him. Roma wanted him and they were very skillful in their approach and timing and they ended up purchasing him. I think they’ve made a good deal.
