Monchi to meet with Pallotta on Monday

John Solano

Il Tempo (Austini): A trip to the president’s home in Boston to finalise the strategies of the January transfer market. There is no rest for Monchi, who will embark for the United States on Monday along with fellow executives Fienga and Calvo. Pallotta awaits for his “top” men of the various sectors of the club for a meeting they’ve had scheduled for nearly a month. It’s not an emergency summit, but it’s more of an update on all the affairs of AS Roma. This time, though, Baldissoni will not be present because he is engaged with operational meetings in regards to the Stadio della Roma — in fact, he hasn’t even flown to the Czech Republic for the Giallorossi’s clash against Viktoria Plzen. On Monday, Baldissoni will be present for the Champions League draw in Nyon while Monchi goes to Pallotta. There was an agreement between Roma’s hierarchy within 5 minutes following Roma’s draw against Cagliari — Di Francesco won’t be sacked. Monchi explained his position to the media yesterday and reiterated that he would not resign should Di Francesco be sacked. For January, he does not have another “revolution” in mind, but he does want to present Pallotta with possible options. Monchi is looking for a midfielder, though, he hasn’t set his sights on any one name. However, one thing is certain, should a player arrive, one would leave. Pallotta now awaits the arrival of Monchi while also denying the rumors that he is looking to sell AS Roma.
