Roma, Sao Paolo negotiating for Toloi

A story that may not have ended: Sky Italia has reported this evening that Roma and Sao Paolo have re-opened negotiations for Rafael Toloi.

After his six month loan ended with the Giallorossi, Sao Paolo and Roma were unable to come to an agreement for the Brazilian defender. But, despite the pleas from the coaching staff, Sao Paolo may now be open to a sale of the youngster.

Roma and Sao Paolo have been in contact over the last few days over the player, but it remains to be seen if a deal for a straight sale instead of a loan with option to buy will be found.
