Roma to Profit from Transfer Market Despite Big Moves

Roma have added multiple high-profile players, but they are well on track to gain money in the ongoing transfer market window. They have already cashed in €34M and should rake in some more before deadline day.

As La Gazzetta dello Sport indicates, the Giallorossi spent just €7M on fees so far, to acquire Zeki Celik from Lille. Nemanja Matic, Paulo Dybala and Mile Svilar joined on free transfers. Georginio Wijnaldum did it on loan with an €8M option to buy. José Mourinho was key to defeating the competition in multiple cases.

Roma are unlikely to disburse much more on the transfer market. Their final objectives are Andrea Belotti, who is without a team, and a defender. It will be either Dan-Axel Zagadou or somebody on loan. The capital side anticipates selling a few outcasts to further increase their earnings.

They have gotten €2M from Milan for Florenzi, Robin Olsen joined West Ham in a €3.5M move, while Olympique Marseille paid €11M for Jordan Veretout. Les Phocéens had already given them €20M for Pau Lopez and Cengiz Under. They received around €1.5M for Tommaso Milanese, Daniel Fuzato, and Joel Voelkerling Persson combined. Carles Perez and Gonzalo Villar departed on loans with option to buy. Multiple fringe players are on the chopping block: Justin Kluivert, Amadou Diawara and Riccardo Calafiori figure to be the most profitable ones.

Our Take on How Roma Transfer Market

Tiago Pinto has been masterful in rightsizing resources and correcting previous mistakes. The ownership clearly tightened the belt after a grand 2021. But that doesn’t mean that the squad needs to be weakened as a result. Similarly to Juventus, they are clearly operating on a budget, but they aren’t harping on it like Inter.
