Pizarro and Rosi ready to quit Roma

There's trouble at Roma, as Zenit reportedly increase their David Pizarro offer to €10m and Aleandro Rosi warns he “wants a permanent transfer.”

The Giallorossi are forced to deal with financial problems and the unhappiness of certain members of the squad.

It is well known that Pizarro is not going through a good period of form and would like a reunion with his old Roma Coach Luciano Spalletti at Zenit.

The Russian outfit have reportedly raised their offer from an original €4m to €10m, according to Sportmediaset.it.

The Chilean midfielder has already worked with Spalletti at Udinese and Roma.

Meanwhile, after Julio Baptista officially joined Malaga, full-back Rosi is also looking to leave the Olimpico.

“Clearly we are not happy with the situation,” agent Davide Lippi told Calciomercato.it.

“He made the decision to return to Roma based on a very different promise. We were told he'd have more room and leaving him in the stands for 14 consecutive games is not the way to prove their faith in a player.

“I can assure you offers from clubs, including big ones, are not lacking and it would be a grave mistake if Roma were to let him go.

“We will demand a meeting with directors and without the reassurances we want, we'll ask for a move away. We'd like to avoid a January switch, but if that were to happen, it would only be for a permanent move.”
