Roma awaiting Sao Paolo’s answer for Toloi

This weekend we will see the “official” beginning of Roma’s transfer market. Corriere della Sera has reported this morning that Roma are awaiting to receive an answer from Sao Paolo of their offer for Rafael Toloi, which should arrive no later Sunday.

Roma have offered a one year loan plus a €4m option to buy for the Brazilian, who arrived in January. If Sao Paolo reject the offer, then Roma have a deal for Lille’s Marko Basa already completed for €4m, with personal terms already agreed to with the player.
