Roma in for Braga’s Rafa Silva?

Antonio Araujo, the agent of Sporting Braga attacking midfielder Rafa Silva, spoke today regarding the persistent rumors of interest from Roma for the Portugese player.

“It’s true that there are many clubs in different leagues interested in Rafa Silva, and it is normal that they ask about him because he is young and is having a fantastic season. He’s already made his debut with the Portugese national team and it’s normal that several clubs have look towards him. There is a release clause of €20m, but it’s up to the club’s president whether or not to accept any offers that arrive. Some arrived in January, but he stayed where he was. Roma? There have been rumors, but as of now, nobody from Roma has contacted me. Rafa is a talent, and I will take care of him until his next destination.”
