Guardiola set for Roma Thursday 9 May, 2002

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Brescia midfielder Josep Guardiola is set to join Roma for the new season according to reports.

Speculation suggests that a deal has already been agreed for the former Barcelona star who has had a very eventful first season in Italy.

The Spaniard arrived at the Rigamonti on a free transfer last summer but then served a four-month doping ban after testing positive for nandrolone.

He subsequently returned and played a crucial part in the closing stages of the season to keep Brescia in the top flight before a knee injury ruled him out of the World Cup.

The 30-year-old, who is available for nothing as he only signed a one-year deal with the Lombard outfit, has been linked with a variety of clubs across the continent.

Meanwhile, Juventus general director Luciano Moggi has rubbished claims linking the Giallorossi with Edgar Davids. "The stories are pure invention," he claimed.

Guardiola on way to AS Roma

First Published: May 09, 2002


AS Roma are to sign former FC Barcelona captain Pep Guardiola.

The player is recovering from injury at the moment which sees the Brescia player sit out Spain's World Cup campaign next month.

His time at Brescia was marred by a ban for nandrolone use and he is not renewing his contract with the club after his move as a free agent last summer. He has had several offers to leave Italy but AS Roma have offered the midfielder a two year contract.

Brescia expect Guardiola to agree the move next week.

Guardiola linked with Roma move


ROME, May 10 (DS) - Brescia midfielder Josep Guardiola will join AS Roma next season, Italian paper Corriere dello Sport reported.
The same paper indicated that the Rome side are set to quicken the deal because they are facing a strong competition from another Italian side Juventus FC.
However, the sources close to the player say no talks have been yet conducted.
The Spanish international is currently in his home city Barcelona, where he is recovering from an injury. Thus, it is obvious Guardiola's possible transfer will come only after the player's full recovery.

If Guardiola comes, which is still not a sure thing, he would be Emerson's backup. Guardiola is still to this day one of the best registas, I saw some of his games with Brescia and he was impressive, totally comanded and dictated in the midfield...
