Iago Maidana acquires Italian passport


(Exclusive – RomaPress): Iago Maidana of Atletico Mineiro has been linked heavily with Roma over the last week. The entourage of the player has been working for some days to acquire an EU passport for the defender in order to make a potential move to Europe smoother. As learned by RomaPress, Maidana has acquired an Italian passport and remains an objective of the Giallorossi for January — should the player arrive at Trigoria, he would not take up a non-EU place.
