Vincenzo Montella could be named as Roma boss within the next 48 hours, reports the Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Giallorossi are keen on re-appointing Montella after Luis Enrique – the man who replaced him at the Stadio Olimpico last summer – has now quit the club.
Although Catania and Roma are yet to reach an agreement over Montella’s exit, the Giallorossi are keen to wrap up a deal by the end of this week.
Montella is contracted to Catania for another 12 months.
Roma will apparently have around €30m to spend on the transfer market this summer. That amount may rise depending on summer sales.
