Giulianelli: “(Bradley) Will Stay in Rome”


The market of Roma never sleeps as the Giallorossi search for reinforcements.

To get a clearer picture of Roma’s mercato, we spoke exclusively with Italian journalist Emanuele Giulianelli of La Gazzetta dello Sport, FourFourTwo, and Il Messaggero.

The Giallorossi are in for Heitinga? The interest is concrete?
Of course they are. As I wrote in La Gazzetta dello Sport, he told me Roma is interested in him and he would like to come and play in one of the best teams in Italy, that plays one of the best football in Europe.

Burdisso must leave first before the Dutchman arrives?
Yes, I think the two operations are strictly connected. If Burdisso will leave, Heitinga can arrive in January; but it’s not completely excluded that, being John ending his contract with Everton, could join Roma in free transfer all the same in next June.

There are talks of Nainggolan and Parolo. You believe either will arrive?
I believe more in Parolo than Nainggolan. The rumors about the Belgian midfielder look more like misdirection by Sabatini. Do you remember Kameni and Stekelenburg?

The American Michael Bradley may also be sold?
No, no chance: he will stay in Rome.

The match of Roma-Juve affects the market?
I don’t think so, Roma will try to improve the roster in any case.
