The cost of Mattia Destro…

The Gazzetta dello Sport is suggesting that Mattia Destro will eventually cost Roma somewhere in the region of €16m.

The striker, co-owned between Siena and Genoa, has finally agreed to join the Stadio Olimpico giants and an official announcement should be made towards the end of the week.

Genoa will firstly sign total control of the Italian Under-21 international, before then handing him over to the Giallorossi.

The Gazzetta claims that the former Inter youngster will initially move to Rome from the port club on a loan deal at a cost of €5m.

They will also have a right to buy at the end of the season for a further €7m. Genoa will also get a half-share in the contracts of youngsters Eugenio Lamanna, Valerio Verre and Gianmario Piscitella.

In terms of the player himself, it is claimed that he has accepted a five-year contract which will see him net a basic €1.5m a season, but that could rise depending on bonus clauses.
