ROME – Trigoria sees optimism over the meeting that took place yesterday between general manager Tiago Pinto and Smalling’s agent, James Feathertstone. The negotiation went ahead, even if an agreement has not yet been found. For about two months, Roma have presented an offer to the defender, for a two-year renewal, at lower figures than the 3.5 a year he currently takes. However, with the bonuses Smalling would exceed 5 million in two years. The English prosecutor’s request would be higher: a three-year contract at those figures, or a two-year contract with a higher salary. There will be an update soon, however the will of the player should prevail, who has already expressed his intention to stay in Rome. The agent took his time and will also evaluate other offers. But neither Inter nor Juventus are interested in Smalling, who could have offers from a Premier club, but in the second tier. The former Manchester United would like to play in the Champions League. Mourinho is betting a lot on his confirmation, he considers him one of the leaders of the team and the pivot of the defence. Before the match, solicited, Nicolò Zaniolo spoke about the future. And regarding the expectations that surround him, he explained: «Pressures are part of the game and of football, I’m used to living with it and I live with it. There are games that I play better and others worse, but the important thing is to bring home what the coach asks of us and make yourself available to the team». And on the renewal, a dribble. «I’m fine, there’s the match and let’s think about this. My agent will talk about the renewal with the club and with those in charge, I don’t think about these things ».
The negotiations between Rome and Turin for the transfer of Shomurodov continue to the bitter end. But there is still distance in the loan arrangements. Tiago Pinto absolutely wants to insert the obligation, Vagnati hopes to be able to get a right of redemption to be exercised when certain sporting results are achieved. The attacker has already agreed with the club and has no other interesting offers to consider. Trading will continue until the end of the market. Turin needs a striker, with Sanabria outgoing, who Lazio and Fiorentina like. For some time Juric has bet on the Uzbek, who was also sought in the summer. His agents are working to find a solution that satisfies everyone. Shomurodov doesn’t find space in Roma, he was paid 17.5 million a year and a half ago and earns around three million a year, so he weighs heavily on the wage bill.
Another player with his suitcases ready and Karsdorp, also not called up yesterday for the Coppa Italia match against Genoa. The Dutchman is still out due to a technical choice, even if he trains all week with the team. The full-back is interested in Monza, but the problem is his salary: he earns 3.2 a year. Roma are looking for a solution to close the story: not on loan but on a definitive basis. In addition to Monza, there are some second tier clubs in the Premier League. Betis Seville’s interest in Viña has cooled off. If a couple of players were to leave, a young central defender could arrive, as requested by Mourinho.
