Allan “the alternative” for Taddei renewal

Another name for the market and now it’s Udinese’s defensive midfielder Allan.

Allan, who moved to Udine for €3m in 2012, is said to be greatly admired by Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini and is seen as an ideal replacement for Rodrigo Taddei, who is out of contract this summer. Udinese sporting director, Cristiano Giaretta, admitted earlier this week that relations between the two clubs are very cordial and that they’d be open to doing business for multiple players with the Giallorossi.
