Both Roma and Bologna have deal in place for Atalanta’s Ibañez: now the player will decide

John Solano

Filippo Biafora of Il Tempo has reported that both Roma and Bologna have reached an agreement with Atalanta for central defender Ibañez.

The 21 year-old defender joined Atalanta this past summer but has yet to register a single league appearance for La Dea, prompting his agents to find a new club for the Brazilian.

Roma and Bologna have found an agreement with Atalanta on the basis of an 18-month loan with an obligation to buy for €10 million. The player and his agents will meet with each club on Wednesday then he will make a decision. However, Bologna director Walter Sabatini is convinced his club has the upper hand for the services of Ibañez.
