Confidence for Nastasic

Gianluca Di Marzio reports that another reinforcement is on the horizon for Roma, who are ready to gift Matija Nastasic to Di Francesco.

It is a very hot track and a negotiation that is close to a conclusion. Monchi admitted that Roma like the player and he is a goal. Roma hopes to be able to close for the player, perhaps even tomorrow: contacts have continued as Roma are trying to lower the €20 million asking price of Schalke. Roma are working on potential bonuses and there is great confidence and optimism that the operation closes.
