Danubio goalkeeper Mauro Goicoechea has revealed that he is set to join Italian giants Roma this summer.
“I’m really happy,” he told a website in his homeland of Uruguay. “I’m living through a really important moment.
“I’ve had to wait for 15 days, but fortunately everything has been concluded in the best manner possible.
“As soon as I arrive in Rome I will contact Emiliano Alfaro [of Lazio] who was a colleague of mine in the past and he’ll help me.”
Goicoechea is a 24-year-old who has spent his entire career at Danubio. He has represented his country at Under-17 and Under-20 level.
Roma’s current ‘keepers include Maarten Stekelenburg, Bogdan Lobont and 18-year-old Tomas Svedkauskas.
