La Gazzetta dello Sport: Carbonero says “yes” to Cesena

La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Luca Bianchin is reporting that Roma have convinced River Plate midfielder Carlos Carbonero to accept a loan to Cesena for the season.

The deal for the Colombian has been in the works for weeks, but there have been complications due to his non-EU status and also it was reported that Carbonero was not interested in playing for Cesena and fighting against relegation. But it now appears Roma convinced the youngster to accept the loan to Cesena because Roma do not have any available non-EU spots on their roster.

The Giallorossi are set to pay around €700,000 for the loan of the player with an option to buy that is reported to be between €7-€8 million.
