Former Brescia and Juventus executive, Maurizio Lombardo, is nearing an agreement to join Roma.
La Gazzetta dello Sport and Il Messaggero have reported that the 46 year-old is set to be appointed the new General Secretary for the club.
Lombardo has already met with Roma’s management on multiple occasions. The agreement between the sides is expected to be formalised in the coming days.
He will replace the recently departed Pantaleo Longo, who resigned in September following his administrative error that handed Roma an automatic 3-0 loss to Hellas Verona.
Lombardo left Juventus in October after spending the previous ten seasons with the club. Before his time with the Bianconeri, he held the same role with Brescia from 2004 until 2011.
