Mediaset Premium claim Sassuolo Coach Eusebio Di Francesco has agreed to replace Luciano Spalletti as Roma Coach next season.
The 47-year-old tactician has history with the Giallorossi, winning the Scudetto here when playing in their midfield from 1997-2001.
He retired in 2007 and became a Coach at Virtus Lanciano in 2008, then Pescara, Lecce and Sassuolo in 2012.
Di Francesco is under contract with the Neroverdi until June 2019, but there is a release clause worth €3m.
It’s believed Roma are prepared to activate it in order to get the tactician.
He helped Sassuolo to promotion into Serie A and their first ever foray into Europe, relying on young players – many of them on loan from Roma’s academy.
This is sparking a merry-go-round, as ex-Inter Coach Stefano Pioli is heading to Fiorentina, while Spalletti could well replace him at San Siro.
