Report: Olsen returns to Roma

Robin Olsen has stunned Cagliari by rejecting an extension of his loan deal and returning to Roma, reports Tuttomercatoweb.

Olsen had been expected to prolong his season-long loan for two more months.

However, TMW claims he told Cagliari after their 4-2 win against Torino yesterday that he had ‘no intention’ of doing so, citing a desire to avoid ‘risking injuries’.

It comes after coach Walter Zenga vowed to rotate his goalkeepers following the return of Alessio Cragno from injury, a la David Ospina and Alex Meret at Napoli.

There is currently no requirement for loans to be extended, so clubs are powerless in this regard. 

The 30-year-old will not receive his final wages for June, July and August as a result, although the Sardinians are covering only half of his salary.

Despite an injury to Pau Lopez, Olsen will not be allowed to take part in Roma’s remaining matches this season.

He could be Portugal-bound this summer as A Bola recently reported Sporting CP were ready to swoop for the Swede.

Meanwhile, the website expects fellow loanees Radja Nainggolan, Luca Pellegrini and Daniele Ragatzu, plus expiring trio Luca Cigarini, Fabrizio Cacciatore and Alberto Paloschi to all extend until August
