Former Fiorentina director Corvino praises Roma’s market

Pantaleo Corvino, former Fiorentina sporting director, spoke with TuttomercatoWeb about the Giallorossi’s market:

Are Roma the kings of the market?
“Today in Europe, England and Germany there is significantly more to invest. And even in France with PSG. But now, Roma can withstand them, which is an major investment. Today, in light of what they did last season, Roma is a leading protagonist in the league.”

Can Roma win the Scudetto?
“Unlike a few years ago when there were Moggi’s Juventus, Kaka and Inzaghi’s AC Milan and a young Totti at Roma, today’s championship fight is greaters. You must also consider Napoli, Fiorentina, and Lazio. If all goes well, there are 6-7 teams that can aspire to win the championship.”

Roma may need to sell Ljajic or Destro for budgetary reasons: who should stay?
“They are both players with significant potential. They both should remain.”
