Barcelona B manager Luis Enrique confirms “there are a few details left to complete the deal” with Roma.
The Spaniard had already admitted to negotiations last week and they are progressing very quickly.
“Roma are like a dessert that everyone is happy to eat,” he said after his final match in charge of Barcelona B, the reserve squad that plays in the second division.
“I really like the Roma project. There are a few details left to complete the deal.”
It is also widely reported that former Lazio midfielder Ivan De La Pena will be his assistant manager at the Stadio Olimpico.
“He has a very good chance of taking part in this adventure,” added Luis Enrique.
Once the Coach is in place, new President Thomas Di Benedetto and his American investors can begin planning a transfer strategy.
