The Giallorossi are preparing for a real revolution in the summer window, reports Il Tempo.
The capital club are focusing on finishing the season strong, but the management are already at work to plan the new season ahead. Thus, several names have fallen on the list of ‘potentially departing’ members of the team’s roster.
According to the newspaper, Roma are prioritizing Zaniolo and Mancini’s renewals, with Abraham, Pellegrini and Rui Patricio being considered untouchable for the moment. The club also want to keep Roger Ibañez, for whom Mourinho has high hopes and with whom he shares an excellent rapport.
Chris Smalling is likely to remain for another season but a decision will be made based on the centre-back’s physical condition.
Sergio Oliveira is also bound to remain at Trigoria after his arrival in the Italian capital earlier in January.
On the other hand, the Giallorossi have already broken off talks related to Jordan Veretout’s renewal and will evaluate all incoming offers for the Frenchman, as well as Bryan Cristante and Rick Karsdorp, among those in the starting eleven.
Moving on, the club will likely consider off-loading Stephan El Shaarawy, Carles Perez, Amadou Diawara and Ebrima Darboe. Marash Kumbulla could also move on from the capital.
Finally, Ainsley Maitland-Niles will have to fight for his place in the team in these last few months of the season as his stay is far from guaranteed at this point in time.
