Roma are edging closer to a definite agreement with Santos for the January transfer of Marcos Leonardo.
Leonardo – who was closing in on a move to Roma earlier this summer before Santos turned down talks with the Giallorossi – has already agreed to personal terms with the Italian club and is eager to move to Serie A.
According to Tuttosport, Roma and Santos have a gentlemen’s agreement in place which implies that Santos will not refuse Roma’s January bid.
The Brazilian side have already reassured Leonardo of his move in the next transfer window as Roma are said to be preparing the formal offer of €13-14 million. This will grant Leonardo the definite green light in January.
