Peres to join Sao Paulo


Il Tempo (Austini): While discussing the renewal with Florenzi, Roma salutes another right-back: Bruno Peres remains in Brazil, where he has been on holiday, and is ready to join Sao Paulo. The Brazilian club have brought the player on loan with an option to buy as the agreement with the Giallorossi and Monchi is being finalised at this time. In recent weeks, Roma had agreed to a loan with an obligation to buy with Torino, but the defender preferred to find a team at home for family reasons. The player was satisfied as he will not be present on Friday at Trigoria to the join the rest of the players who were not involved with their national teams in June and will begin his new adventure. For now it is only a goodbye, but Monchi’s hope is that it can turn into a permanent farewell to help lighten the balance sheet with the sale of a player that no longer falls within the club’s plans. He arrived from Torino to be the starter at right back, but Bruno Peres disappointed the expectations many had for him and he leaves the capital with 69 appearances, 2 goals, and a crucial goal loan rescue save in the Champions League, however, he also leaves after many missteps, including many off the pitch.
