Steven Nzonzi looks to complete his move for free from Roma to Al Rayyan.

According to Filippo Biafora of Il Tempo, the French midfielder is close to being announced as Al Rayyan’s new signing. The Qatari club will pay him €3 million on a two-year contract.

However, there is still a matter to be resolved. The player and his father who acts as Nzonzi’s agent, continue to ask for compensation from Roma. The so-called ‘buonuscita’ would amount to a full season’s salary.

Tiago Pinto is reportedly not willing to negotiate on this matter.

It remains to be seen whether this financial obstacle will be resolved in the coming hours, allowing the French international to leave the Italian capital once and for all.
