Roma don’t want Suarez or Palacio

Roma have cooled speculation that they are pondering moves for Liverpool’s Luis Suarez and Rodrigo Palacio of Genoa.

“There is no negotiation going on for Suarez,” Giallorossi sporting director Walter Sabatini told Radio Mana Mana.

“Even though he’s had a few problems recently, he’s a really strong player but these are only transfer rumours.

“Palacio? We are satisfied with the attackers that we already have in the squad. We have other priorities.”

The capital outfit are currently sixth in Serie A, but they are only three points adrift of the final Champions League spot.

“Should we qualify for that competition then our market strategies would change,” added the ex-Palermo and Lazio official.

“It would be an important objective to achieve and we are still alive in that particular race.”

City rivals Lazio are currently third, with Napoli and Lazio just a point better off than Roma right now.

Luis Enrique’s side will face Lecce on Easter Saturday.
