ROME – Tiago Pinto wants to build the new Rome as soon as possible and is among the most active sporting directors in this start of the summer market. After closing due to the arrival of Matic who will have to undergo medical examinations for sports fitness and then sign the contract, now the Portuguese general manager wants to try to close two more shots to anticipate the competition and be able to concentrate on other operations. So far Pinto has mainly concentrated on strengthening the bench. Over the course of the season, Mourinho has repeatedly underlined the lack of experience (and quality) of the players that he had among the reserves, which is why the club is working on players who can be real alternatives to the owners in the various departments discovered.
Like Zeki Celik and Ola Solbakken. The Lilac Turkish player will in effect be an added holder of the right wing: the full-back cannot be considered a reserve, but will alternate with Karsdorp so that Mourinho can always have a fresh and skilled winger both in the coverage phase and in the push. Tiago Pinto has found an agreement with the 25-year-old player (five-year at two million per season), now he is working with Lille to find the right agreement with a possible closure of 9-10 million. Economic agreement also found with Solbakken who is one step away from Rome and will be the alternative to the right-wing striker: work is being done on the balance to be given to Bodø (which will lose it to zero in December), intending to keep the boy for the preliminaries of the Champions League scheduled for July. Also noteworthy is the indiscretion linked to Dries Mertens, who is released from Napoli and has also been offered to Trigoria.
Farias and Guedes
In short, Tiago Pinto is working hard to give Mourinho a double chance for every role. On the trocar the deputy Pellegrini could be Farias, although his agent has already confirmed his preference: «Facundo would like to play in Porto – he told TSF – It is a club that can serve as a springboard to then reach the best teams in the world. Until Friday we are waiting for a proposal from the Port through intermediaries that I have sent to Europe. We also have an offer from Rome, but honestly we prefer Porto ». On the left, however, the hot name remains that of Gonzalo Guedes: to confirm Pinto’s pressing on Valencia is the same official radio of the Spanish club that has confirmed the interest of the Giallorossi and Wolverhampton. It remains a complicated operation for costs (30 million) but which could be facilitated by the inclusion of a technical counterpart, such as one between Carles Perez, Diawara or Villar.
By the way, disposals are a necessity for the general manager who is in constant contact with agents and clubs to try to thin out a team with many players out of Mourinho’s plans. These disposals will have to bring in about 50-60 million to be reinvested in the incoming market. Thirteen players are leaving Trigoria and Tiago Pinto hopes to be able to place them between June and July, before the start of the new championship. Carles Perez likes Villarreal, Diawara in the Bundesliga, Kluivert on the other hand can stay in France. Not from Nice, which is asking for a significant discount on the 14.5 million agreed at the start of the season, but from Monaco, which has instead confirmed its willingness to take it at full price. Veretout continues to flirt with Marseille who for the moment are not making convincing proposals, El Shaarawy is Galliani’s temptation for his Monza.
Meanwhile Paulo Fonseca, who coached Roma before Mourinho, is negotiating with Lilla. Celik’s own team. He could start over from France after the sabbatical year.
