After finalising a deal for left back Matías Viña, Roma will turn their attention to the midfield and attack, working on both incoming and outgoing transfers.
One of the primary pieces of business that the capital club will focus on is offloading veteran attacker Pedro, who joined the club just one year ago.
Manager José Mourinho has already made it clear to the ex-Barcelona man that he isn’t a part of his plans for the upcoming campaign, excluding the attacker from his preseason call up list.
The problem for Roma, though, is that the Spaniard still has two years remaining on his deal with the club, earning an enormous €3 million (net) per season—giving him little incentive to depart.
Nonetheless, Tiago Pinto, the club’s General Director, will try to get Pedro off the club’s wage bill before pursuing any additional reinforcements, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The capital club want to avoid having to pay a “buonuscita” or payoff to the attacker, and will try to find a club willing to acquire the player via transfer.
