Alisson nearing departure, Monchi likes Suso


Il Tempo have revealed that Alisson could leave Roma in the upcoming days or, at most, the next couple of weeks. Chelsea is currently in the lead for the services of the Brazilian with Real Madrid and Chelsea in the background.

Roma have decided that they won’t hold the Brazilian back from making a big money move due to the huge plusvalenza that would arrive as well as their inability to match the wage offers he’s received, which are worth over €5 million (net) per season. With Courtois destined for Real Madrid, the Blues look likely to make Alisson his substitute. The offer for the player could be around €70 million plus bonuses, which would make it reach a total of €80 million. With the proceeds, Monchi is ready to close the operation for PSG’s Alphonse Areola, who could join in the latter stages of the US tour.

Alessandro Florenzi is set to remain at the club while Monchi is also discussing the possibility of Suso, who shares an agent with Florenzi. The Spaniard’s €38 million clause applies only to clubs abroad, though, Milan seem to be asking €40 million for the player but this can be negotiated down. Provided this, one between Perotti and El Shaarawy would depart.
