Marcos Leonardo is one step away from signing a preliminary agreement for a move to Roma in January.
As revealed a few days ago, Santos have increasingly grown favorable to the idea of letting Leonardo leave in the winter transfer window after blocking his exit earlier this summer.
The Brazilian side promised Leonardo that they will not get in the way of his transfer to Europe once the season comes to an end.
According to Corriere dello Sport, Roma and Santos have an agreement in place.
Santos are only waiting for Roma’s formal offer to come through before putting pen to paper to guarantee Marcos Leonardo’s move away in January.
