Paredes Nears


The Giallorossi look set to claim their first capture of the 2014 winter market, his name: Leandro Paredes of Boca Juniors.

Roma’s Sporting Director Walter Sabatini has tracked the player for several months and now, an agreement looks almost official. Roma must first, however, find a team willing to take on the Argentine because the player does not have an EU-passport. Roma have no available slots for non-EU players so they must find a team willing to take the player on loan until June.

A complicated situation, yes, but a solution should be found soon.
