Sabatini, Pozzo continue Iturbe talks

Il Messaggero: Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini, Udinese/Watford owner Gino Pozzo, and the agent of Juan Iturbe, Pierpaolo Triulzi, had lunch today together to discuss the Argentine’s future.

The trio continued transfer talks today for Iturbe, who is seemingly on his way out of Trigoria after a disappointing 18 months in the Italian capital. The final figures are still being discussed, however, the English club are set to pay between €1.5-€2 million for the loan of the player and will have an option to make the move permanent in June for an additional €15-€18 million.
