Villarreal defender Mateo Musacchio “is wanted by Roma and we’ll speak to them soon,” said his agent.
The Spanish club was relegated from La Liga and therefore expected to sell many of their top stars this summer, including the Argentine.
“Musacchio is wanted by Roma directors, they have been tracking him for some time and this is why we’ll speak to them soon,” agent Marcelo Lombilla told Tele Radio Stereo.
“Having said that, we have to understand what intentions the President has, as now the club has to be redeveloped after the unexpected relegation.
“Musacchio had important offers from many European clubs. He is popular because he is a modern defender.”
