Roma Will Be Forced to Sell a Few Players Next Summer

Roma will have to register a massive profit in the next transfer window to abide by the Financial Fair Play. They’ll have to make some tough decisions about which cornerstone to sell. The departure of Nicolò Zaniolo partially helps, but it wasn’t enough to meet the parameters.

According to Corriere dello Sport, the Giallorossi must be in the black by €50/55M to avoid further sanctions. The management is open to offers for Roger Ibanez and Tammy Abraham, who are two of their most profitable pieces.

The defender has a €25M valuation and could find some suitors in the Premier League. The striker could head there too, but his poor form limits his price tag to €40/45M. Chelsea have an €80M buy-back clause, but they won’t activate it. While it looked like a bugaboo for Roma when he was thriving last season, it’s a mirage now.

The capital club will also listen to the bids for multiple homegrown talents. Edoardo Bove, Cristian Volpato, and Benjamin Tahirovic are receiving interest from fellow Serie A teams. If the right offer comes, Nicola Zalewski could be expendable too.

Our Take on Roma

The rumors about their summer plans have been eerily quiet, and this is the main reason why, on top of the fact that they don’t know whether José Mourinho and a few stars will stay. There probably won’t be a fire sale, but they’ll have to sacrifice one or two key pieces and retool. Abraham could always bounce back, but he’s surely at risk since he’s their priciest player. Ibanez’s departure could be an addition by subtraction given his recurrent gaffes.
