|dr hackenbush||Seems we have the ok from Alderweireld for a transfer. Just need to make a deal with Tottenham now.|

|Wolf Man||we seem to be very close to Mancini, a 5m loan and an obligation to buy for 20m next year. reports also indicate that we've reached an agreement with Fiorentina for Veretout and are working on reaching an agreement with the player, either we're paying 10m + Defrel or 20m + 5m in bonuses.|

|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.|

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.

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.

Pau Lopez seems to be the GK we want, according to all the rumors, and it seems we will have to pay 20m for him plus forgo the 7m we would make if Real Betis ever sell Sanabria.
also, it seems rumors shifted from Higuain and his ridiculous price tag/wages to Madrid's Mariano Diaz. what do you guys think? or is it only the good doctor and myself left in here.
|July 6th, 2019 07:46|
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.

Gerson and his entourage seem to do what they do best and are sabotaging the Moscow move. I guess they are still waiting on the fabled Barca move where he'll activate that ballon d'or clause in his contract.
also, we seem to be close to Mancini.

|Wolf Man||Petrachi with 4 moves in the opening day of the mercato, it'll be interesting to see how this goes.|
|June 30th, 2019 16:17|
Gerson seems to have finally agreed to leave, Dynamo Moscow.

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

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.
