Roma Star Forward at Risk of Missing Out on Milan Clash

Roma could not have imagined a worse start to the season. After being held to a 2-2 draw to Salernitana on matchday one, Giallorossi suffered a catastrophic 2-1 defeat to last season’s Serie A relegation fighters Hellas Verona on Saturday night. 

To make things worse, during a frustrating loss to 10-man Verona, Paulo Dybala picked up an injury that could sideline him for the upcoming clash against Milan. The Argentine returned to the fold after missing out on Salernitana’s visit to the Stadio Olimpico last weekend. 

However, the left-footed forward was in discomfort and had to limp off the pitch midway through the second half, with Ola Solbakken taking his place. According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Dybala now risks sitting out Milan’s visit to the capital next week. 

Dybala’s potential absence would be a massive blow for Roma. They will entertain Stefano Pioli’s high-flying side without Tammy Abraham. That’s not to mention Jose Mourinho is still out with a touchline ban. So the last thing Giallorossi needed ahead of the Milan fixture was to lose Dybala.

But by the time Rossoneri touch down in Rome, Romelu Lukaku should be a new Roma player. The ex-Inter striker is on the verge of reuniting with Mourinho. He could soon become the second attacking signing at the Olimpico this summer after Sardar Azmoun’s loan arrival from Bayer Leverkusen.

Talks between Chelsea and Roma are in advanced stages. It’s only a matter of time before Lukaku returns to Serie A.
