Roma need to rake in €30M to abide by a first Financial Fair Play deadline on June 30th. They are on the verge of fulfilling their goal with one day to go. Rather than selling a starter, the Giallorossi elected to part ways with a few youngsters and misfits that weren’t integral to their squad.
Per Calciomercato, the capital side will clear the threshold if the deals involving Carles Perez and Matias Vina go through. The Spaniard is expected to stay at Celta Vigo, but their offer is too low at this stage. They proposed €4.5M, while the counterparty wants at least two more.
Roma shipped off Benjamin Tahirovic to Ajax for €7.5M and struck a deal with Sassuolo regarding two more starlets, Filippo Missori and Cristian Volpato. They’ll receive around €10M for the duo. Instead, they collected €11M from Justin Kluivert’s permanent departure. He joined Bournemouth last week.
Director Tiago Pinto prepared fallbacks in case the final transfers don’t go through. Ola Solbakken is drawing interest from Hoffenheim and other Bundesliga sides. He could be sacrificed for €5/6M. Rick Karsdorp has been expendable for a while. The last resort is Leonardo Spinazzola, who has suitors in Saudi Arabia.
Our Take on the Roma Sales
The Giallorossi are lucky to have such a fecund youth academy, or they’ll have to give up one or more regulars in each session. The other side of the coin of such a strategy is that they have to hope their assessments of their prodigies are correct; otherwise, they’ll have major regrets down the line as has happened with Davide Frattesi.
