RomaPress – Even though their season ended in spectacularly poor fashion less than 24 hours ago, Roma will immediately begin their work on the transfer market as they await the “official” arrival of The Friedkin Group.
The Houston based consortium will make their takeover of the Giallorossi official in ten days when they formally acquire the club from James Pallotta.
In the meantime, Roma CEO Guido Fienga, who RomaPress can confirm will remain with the club (at least in the short term) once the Friedkin’s arrive, is already working on the team’s transfer market business.
The upcoming market will certainly see the usual rumors involving both of Roma’s starlets: Lorenzo Pellegrini and Nicolo Zaniolo.
For Pellegrini, the Giallorossi have every intention of renewing his contract and eliminating the €30 million release clause that is in his current deal. Several clubs in Italy and abroad have expressed their interest in his signature, but Roma have no intention of selling him.
The situation is very much the same for Nicolo Zaniolo. A source close the player’s entourage has confirmed that Juventus are incredibly interested in the attacker and want to bring him to Turin this summer.
The Bianconeri are doing all they can to acquire the young attacker and have, so far, even proposed the hypothesis of a swap deal to Roma. The Giallorossi, though, aren’t interested in a swap: Dan and Ryan Friedkin plan on keeping both Italians in order to make them the pillar of their “new” Roma.
