Roma issue Vucinic hurry up

Roma are ready to sell Mirko Vucinic to Juventus or any other interested club, but they've warned admirers to be quick.

The Montenegro international has asked to leave the Stadio Olimpico outfit and Juventus have been associated.

"We would happily keep Vucinic, but he wants to go," Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini told Tuttosport.

"Nevertheless, we've given him permission to speak to possible buyers, but the problem is that Juventus have never stepped forward for him.

"If the rumours of their interest are false then there won't be a problem. If they are keen then they know that Roma are not a low profile club.

"We can afford to pay him €3m a season as we always have."

The capital outfit do seem to be in a rush to sell the player though after warning clubs that transfer situations can develop.

"Experience tells us that the wind in football can change direction very quickly," the former Palermo official added.

"If Vucinic starts training well then I wouldn't be surprised if Coach Luis Enrique asks me to keep him here.

"The price for Vucinic will only increase after midday on Wednesday…"

It's claimed that the Giallorossi value the player at €20m. The rumour mill also suggests that Inter may be possible bidders.
