Roma Seek Positive Resolutions for Wijnaldum and Bailly

Roma are determined to bring in two more veterans, and the negotiations to sign Georginio Wijnaldum and Eric Bailly continue. The Dutch midfielder is eager to join, although the Giallorossi need to come to terms with PSG. The defender is likely to leave following Manchester United’s latest moves.

According to Il Tempo, director Tiago Pinto met with the agent of the former Liverpool star yesterday. He makes €7M plus €2M add-ons in Paris, which is too burdensome for the capital side. The two clubs are discussing how to split his wages and the transfer formula overall. The Ligue 1 powerhouse would not mind including an obligation to buy in the initial loan.

Both outfits will be in Israel later this week. The Giallorossi will face Tottenham in Haifa Saturday, while PSG will square off against Nantes in Tel Aviv Sunday. Their respective brasses could meet up to finalize the deal. As per Goal, Roma aim to pay at most half of the salary and insert a €12/13M clause to acquire Wijnaldum in 2023, and the terms to sign Bailly might end up being similar.

The center-back already played under José Mourinho. His playing time will be impacted by the arrival of Lisandro Martinez from Ajax. According to Il Messaggero, the Red Devils want €15M to part ways with him, but the Giallorossi hope to be able to get him on a temporary spell.

Our Take on Roma Tracking Wijnaldum and Bailly

The capital side keeps exploiting the pull of the Special One, and there is nothing wrong with that since these two could be bargains if they snatched them at their conditions. The downside is that the squad would lack a bit of youthful energy, but it would not be short on star power.
