Barcelona B teenage striker Antonio Sanabria has revealed he’ll join Roma, turning down Arsenal.
“I will soon go on loan to a different Serie A team,” the Paraguayan told Radio Monumental.
“The club will give me some options, as for six months I can’t play at Roma. They have already deposited the necessary funds to the Spanish Federation for the sum Barcelona requested.”
It is believed the clause is worth €3m, but due to various loopholes he cannot technically sign for Roma until the summer.
Sanabria will instead likely be loaned to Sampdoria or Sassuolo to gain Serie A experience.
The 17-year-old had also been heavily linked with Arsenal, but has opted for Roma instead.
Despite his tender age, the forward already has four senior caps with Paraguay.
