Report: Roma have rough agreement in place for Petrachi

La Stampa have reported that Roma and Torino have a rough agreement in place for Granata sporting director Gianluca Petrachi. Despite having a contract with Torino until 2020, the two clubs have a reported rough agreement in place that would see Petrachi depart Torino for the Italian capital.

Torino President Urbano Cairo said in recent weeks, “I have never sold a director”, but this could change. While there is a rough understanding in place, Roma must fully convince Cairo without irritating him due to Petrachi’s contract with the club. But despite this rough agreement — there are no certainties. Pallotta holds current sporting director Ricky Massara in high esteem and he could be convinced by the protege of Sabatini.
