Breaking: Cesena sporting director confirms interest in Carbonero

Cesena sporting Rino Foschi has just spoken with TuttomercatoWeb and has confirmed that there is an agreement in place with AS Roma to bring River Plate midfielder Carlos Carbonero to Italy, with the Giallorossi loaning the youngster to Cesena for the season.

“I can confirm we’re interested in him, but he’s a difficult target as he’s not your average player. We’re talking about a great player worthy of Roma. We’re meeting with the Giallorossi executives to reach a deal.”

With Brienza and the possible arrival of Carbonero, can we consider Cesena complete?
“We are always in place, but this doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t monitor the transfer market. We’ll remain attentive until the very last day.”
