Milik must resolve Napoli issues for Roma

According to the latest reports, Arkadiusz Milik must extend his contract with Napoli and resolve issues before signing for Roma, which will then free Edin Dzeko for Juventus.

The domino effect needs Milik to join Roma, with Dzeko having already agreed a move worth €15m and personal terms on a two-year contract in Turin.

Milik’s agent had a very long meeting with Giallorossi directors today, lasting over five hours, but multiple sources report the player has said yes to the transfer.

Calciomercato.it state the personal terms are worth €5m net per season including bonuses.

The only issue now is for him to extend his contract with Napoli – which expires in June 2021 – to 2022, so he can then join Roma on loan with obligation to buy.

The total cost of that operation will be €18m plus €7m in various add-ons.

Before he can extend the contract with Napoli, Milik must resolve some outstanding issues, said to include fines and unpaid wages.

However, the most difficult parts of the negotiation process appear to have been overcome, with suggestions an announcement could be made tomorrow morning.
