ROME- There Rome deals with Dries Mertens. It does not mean that he will take it but it is the indication of a strategic reflection: Mourinho would be happy to have a player expert, even as they grow older, for each role. There is in the door Rui Patricio, in defense Smallingin midfield will arrive Maticin attack the right man can be Mertens who did not reach an agreement to renew the contract with Napoli. Must not forget, moreover, that last year Roma started the season with three central strikers, because Mourinho wanted that. Today two of them remain in the workforce, the certainty Abraham and the unknown Shomurodovwith the young Felix on the way out: he can go to Salernitana where his discoverer, Morgan De Sanctis, has just taken office as sporting director.
Mertens, born in ’87, has the quality and experience to complete the assault team. And it was her staff who sent out messages from satisfaction to Trigoria, receiving a good reception. But now we must agree on the digits: to the Naples, Mertens asked for a 2.4 million year contract plus bonuses plus 1.6 million signing bonus, plus € 800,000 to pass to agents. The Belgian law firm Stirr Associates, based in Keerbergen, looks after the footballer’s interests. Napoli at these levels does not intend to approach the Rome neither. Never Friedkinwith the support of Mourinho, would propose a different contract, on the Matic model, therefore with the 1 + 1 formula linked to the number of attendees, around 2 million plus bonuses, with commissions contained within 10 percent of the agreement as per company policy. It is now up to Mertens to decide whether to lower the demands and perhaps go towards “his than him” Naples or whether to wait for a more attractive offer, even from Valencia, where Rino Gattuso it would take a lot I’d love that.
Mertens, a wild card for Roma
For sure Mertensspotted several times in Rome in vacation, he still feels like an important player. And he will also choose the destination on the basis of the technical perspectives: with Mourinho he would not start as a starter but would have the possibility of occupying all the roles of the attack, especially in the event of a turn to 4-2-3-1. It would be a reinforcement precious for Rome, under certain economic conditions.
The Rome market
It also is Matic, who will arrive in Italy in the next few days for medical examinations and the signature, and in some ways the young Svilar, the new second goalkeeper. All released who can enrich the team’s potential. Meanwhile the Rome prepares to close for the right-back Celik: the negotiations with Lille have been going on for a few weeks now and can close at 8 million plus bonuses. The player has already been promised a hefty five-year contract. The same proposal that the Norwegian Solbakken accepted two months ago. But the tension with Bodø / Glimt, legacy of the famous locker room brawl, makes negotiations complicated: having the contract expiring on December 31st, Solbakken he could even land in Serie A on a free transfer in January. And so it would be another freedman hired by the Friedkin. The Turkish Akgun is also liked in the role, reported by Vincenzo Montella. but the perplexity is regulatory: after Celik, the second Turkish would block the possible purchase of other non-EU citizens. In the background remain the Portuguese Guedes, who is very expensive, and the Serbian Kostic, close to Juventus, not to mention Berardi who is possibly linked to Zaniolo’s future. But the real bang of the market will involve the midfielder who will have to replace Mkhitaryan: on this front we need to wait to understand who the real goal is. Beyond Frattesifor which Rome is at the window waiting for the choices of Sassuolo.
