Roma set to keep Gago

The agent of Fernando Gago expects Roma to sign the player outright from Real Madrid this summer.

The Argentine joined the Italian club on loan last summer and ended the campaign with 30 Serie A appearances and one goal.

Although Spanish tactician Luis Enrique has now left the club, the 26-year-old should have done enough to earn a permanent switch to the Olimpico.

“There won’t be any particular problems,” representative Marcello Lombilla told Tele Radio Stereo. “Everything should be sorted out next week.

“Director general Franco Baldini will speak to Real. Gago wants to stay at Roma and Real want to sell him.”

It’s unclear how much the midfielder will cost the Giallorossi. He joined the Madrid outfit in 2007 after a spell with Boca Juniors.
