Despite significant problems during the negotiation, Roma haven’t given up the chase for Marcos Leonardo. Rafaela Pimenta is helping them out. She has flown to Brazil for direct talks with Santos, Il Tempo informs (via OneFootball).
The Giallorossi are unlikely to keep pursuing the starlet past this week. They are about to table their final offer before moving on. Their most recent one amounted to €12M plus €6M add-ons. They will likely be forced to up it. The starlet will soon resume practicing.
On top of taking care of the Marcos Leonardo deal, Roma are in touch with Atalanta to arrange the arrival of Duvan Zapata. The two clubs are discussing the final figures and the transfer formula. There’s no complete agreement on those aspects yet.
La Dea won’t send the Colombian to a rival unless the terms are advantageous. They are reluctant to accept a loan if it won’t become a permanent transfer for an adequate fee for sure. The capital side tried to interfere with Fiorentina’s move for Lucas Beltran while the conversations for their primary targets were stalling.
Our Take on Roma, Marcos Leonardo, and Zapata
There’s no drama-free addition for the capital club. It’s paramount to bag the talent to make the purchase of a veteran more palatable. Usually, there’s no issue money can’t solve in the transfer market.
