The Giallorossi managers have to solve each other’s case separately at home: they want to sell him immediately, but for the time being only requests for loan have been received
It’s not just Nicolò Zaniolo’s indisposition that stirs the atmosphere in the House of Rome. On the one hand, the victory against Spezia temporarily took the Giallorossi to fourth place in the table, on the other hand problems on the transfer market are forcing Tiago Pinto to work overtime. The most urgent case to solve is undoubtedly that of number 22, but don’t forget Rick Karsdorp. The other has separated at home, who continues to train with Fulvio Bernardini and is awaiting accommodation. In fact, before Zaniolo’s mutiny, it was the Dutchman – who went to war with Mourinho – that upset the club’s plans for the winter season.
Karsdorp’s future in the capital seems in jeopardy. After Mourinho’s heavy attack, which according to the doctor’s certificate would have caused him serious mental problems, the player put the matter in the hands of his lawyers, effectively sanctioning the end of his Roma story. However, before saying goodbye to the Friedkin club, it is necessary to find a team willing to buy it immediately (the only solution considered acceptable by Roma). But the mission is proving complicated: only loan requests have come to Pinto’s table – for now – and unless things change, the full-back risks spending the second half of the season on the fringes of the project he champions The Special .
FACE TO FACE
To resolve the situation, agent Johan Henkes and the player’s brother crossed the gates of Giallorossi’s technical center this morning, just over a week after the transfer market closed, for a face-to-face match with Tiago Pinto. The aim is to find a solution as quickly as possible and to achieve a separation that is satisfactory for both sides. Monza follow Karsdorp in Italy – Juventus have plenty of other issues to consider – while Marseille and Lyon were interested in France. Plus there’s still Feyenoord – the club that gave birth to football outside – who are happy to take it back. The biggest obstacle to overcome is the signing of over 2 million per season that the Dutchman receives, on top of the 10 million demanded by the Giallorossi to let him go. A solution has not yet been found, but since this morning Roma and her entourage have been sitting around a table to say goodbye once and for all. It takes a little over a week to do it.
