Jordan Veretout is finally close to a Roma transfer after edging closer to Fiorentina’s €20m demands, leaving Milan behind, claim Sky Sport Italia.
The saga has stretched on for weeks now, with the French midfielder rejecting a move abroad in favour of a Serie A stay, but not wanting to remain in Florence.
Roma and Milan continually tried to include player exchanges as part of the deal, something Fiorentina refused point-blank, while Napoli had also been early contenders for his signature.
The Viola lowered their asking price from €25m to €20m in order to speed up the proceedings.
According to the latest reports from Sky Sport Italia, Veretout is very close to joining Roma for €19m including performance-related bonuses.
Milan had been in the lead until today, when Fiorentina turned back to Roma, reportedly because the Rossoneri proposal both to his club and the player were inferior.
