Roma: New boys travel to US

All nine of Roma’s senior signings this summer will travel to the US for the International Champions Cup.

Antonio Mirante, Daniel Fuzato, Ivan Marcano, Davide Santon, William Bianda, Bryan Cristante, Ante Coric, Javier Pastore and Justin Kluivert have all been called up, with only 18-year-old Nicolo Zaniolo missing out.

Zaniolo is joined out of the squad by winger Daniele Verde, who is reportedly in talks with Porto, although Gregoire Defrel makes the cut, despite his future in Giallorosso looking bleak.

Finally, defenders Federico Fazio and Aleksandar Kolarov are in, just weeks after they represented Argentina and Serbia at the World Cup respectively.

The Lupi kick off their preseason campaign in North America against Tottenham Hotspur on July 26, ahead of facing Real Madrid on August 1 and Barcelona, their opponents in last season’s Champions League quarter-finals, a week later.

Roma squad for US tour: Mirante, Fuzato, Cardinali; Karsdorp, Pellegrini, Jesus, Kolarov, Marcano, Santon, Fazio, Florenzi, Manolas, Bianda; Cristante, Strootman, Pellegrini, De Rossi, Coric, Gonalons, Pastore; Perotti, Dzeko, Schick, Under, Defrel, Kluivert, El Shaarawy.
