The future of Roma goalkeeper Pau Lopez no longer a guarantee

Roma shot stopper Pau Lopez suffered a dramatic decline in his performances this season following his embarrassing error conceded in January’s Derby clash against Lazio.

The certainties and security he acquired through working with Roma goalkeeper coach Marco Savorani and displayed in the first half of the season essentially vanished.

Corriere dello Sport reports the Giallorossi now find themselves reflecting on a potential sale of the Spaniard — just one year since his arrival in the Italian capital. However. it will not be easy to find a buyer willing to spend at least €22 million.

At the moment, no offers have arrived, but another viable path is that of a loan, which would allow the club to save on his net salary of €3 million per season.

In the last few hours, there has been contact with Torino about a possible loan exchange — which would see Salvatore Sirigu join Roma. This would gift Roma manager Paulo Fonseca a reliable, experienced and motivated goalkeeper.
