Di Marzio: Roma meeting today with Carbonero’s agent

Roma are continuing their negotiations with the agent of River Plate’s Carlos Carbonero today, according to Sky Italia journalist Gianluca Di Marzio.

This afternoon, Walter Sabatini & Co. will discuss the operation with the player’s entourage. Roma will soon formalize their official offer: loan with an option to make the move permanent for the player, who is really admired by Roma. Since the Colombian doesn’t have an EU passport, Roma will have to approach the operation similar to what they did with Leandro Paredes and Tonny Sanabria, by acquiring the player but sending him on loan to a club with an open non-EU spot (Cesena has been named as a likely destination).
