Mancini to Roma has cooled off. Though, we need two new CB's.

Wolf Man Pau Lopez landed in Rome for his medical and the contract signing should be finalized soon, according to most recent reports he'll cost 20m plus giving up the rights to 7.5m from Sanabria's sales if Betis sell him.

Wolf Man 16m only to Roma. sad to see our best player of last season go, but understandable considering the amount offered to him.

Wolf Man Juventus got Dybala instead of Iturbe and Schick was a failed medical away from signing to Juventus. in the Barella case I think it's Conte who convinced him to join Inter.

there are rumors that Caligari are sold on Defrel and are willing to sell us Cragno next year if we give them Defrel now. I don't know if I'd wait and give Mirante the reigns next season, or jump on Pau who was recently valued at 35m and had Barca's attention and is requested by Fonseca.

Madrid aren't interested in any loan deals, they want to sell.

and finally, I think Celar is gonna be loaned to a Serie B team but I can't remember the source. and I'm ok with that because I think he needs a season or two of play time away from Roma to test him and before putting pressure on him.

Dropping by almost every day, still a habit after all these years... just to lazy/tired to write anything.

Barella went for a more "stable" environment or should I say coach. I wouldn't say this was our first "strong arming" against the big clubs. Just remember Iturbe and Schick... But maybe this would be the most reliable acquisition.

The midfield is quite covered, I really hope we sort out the defense and offense.

As for Pau Lopez, I have mixed feelings, didn't see enough of the guy, but I have to admit that I was on the Cragno bandwagon. It's a big sum and gamble for a goalkeeper that comes from another league...

Hope we dodge Higuain and realistically Diaz is also a gamble with the inflated price tag + salary. If Petrachi can do some magic and get him on loan + optional buy, then yes. But that's already sci-fi.

Almost forgot, really hope Žan Celar gets a chance this year.

Wolf Man according to Petrachi, Barella has chosen Inter.
too bad since this is the first time since I started following Roma, I think, that we were financially strong arming a bigger team for a player.

Should have Sabatini to buy him.

we could use two but could get by on one, it all depends on who we sign.

Wolf Man Petrachi with 4 moves in the opening day of the mercato, it'll be interesting to see how this goes.

Wolf Man double post.

Gerson seems to have finally agreed to leave, Dynamo Moscow.

Wolf Man there is a Petrachi quote from his Torino days that actually fits the situation perfectly:

But, for me and for the coach [Gianpiero Ventura] that player had finished his story with Toro.

I was telling them: ĎThis player isnít part of our plans because heís stretching the team by 40 metres [on the pitch].í All this to say itís up to us not to reason like fans, but be assertive and detached.
Ponce was a journey kid and he didn't show anything until he landed in Greece, his stats there are impressive but when you consider the league and watch the actual goals he was scoring, you wouldn't want him to be our sub striker let alone lead our attack. I have no idea why some people are upset about letting him go. not every youth academy product has to automatically be a success and a first team member.

fans want Luca Pellegrini to stay and become a world beater at Roma because he's a youth product and Romano, you have to root for that and if it comes with loyalty to the club, then those are the treasures that makes not winning any silverware easier. we have him, he is class and regardless of your money and accolades you can't have him. however we don't have the time or the finances to wait for him to become that player, we need a capable player now and Spinazzola is that player. lighting fast, good offensively and defensively and still relatively young, on the other hand the only negative is that he's had the same ACL injury Luca had it limited his play style a bit. also, we have a great LB prospect coming from youth ranks in Semeraro.

personally I would've sold Zaniolo for 60m if possible before the deadline to cover the deficit and finance some acquisitions and kept the core intact, while using fringe and unwanted players to generate extra revenue or as part of deals to acquire targets we're interested in.

fans need to understand that regardless of who the DS is we're gonna need to sell players every year to satisfy FFP until we secure more or better revenue streams.
