Roma confirm Bojan 'next week'

Roma director of sport Walter Sabatini confirms “we hope to complete the signing of Bojan Krkic in the next few days.”

The Barcelona and Spain forward is one of the hottest young talents in La Liga, but has far too much competition for places at the Nou Camp.

“It's true and I confirm this is a very realistic hypothesis, even if it has not been perfected yet,” Sabatini told Rete Sport.

“We hope to complete the signing of Bojan in the next few days.”

He is the first Barcelona figure to follow new Coach Luis Enrique to Roma, as more are expected, particularly from Barcelona B.

Spanish newspapers expect Bojan to arrive for €10m, although Barça want a clause allowing them to buy him back for €12m.

Meanwhile, Sabatini also commented on other transfer issues surrounding the Giallorossi.

“Ricky Alvarez is a very strong and versatile player. We are monitoring him, as with other players. You may have noticed a sort of paralysis in the transfer market, but we expect a domino effect once the first move goes through.”

Mirko Vucinic's agent confessed “something has broken” with Roma and is in preliminary talks with both Juventus and Premier League sides.

“Vucinic is a great player and knows he is important for Roma, so we will find a point of balance. He is precious for this club.”
