Bradley flattered by Roma interest

A flattered Michael Bradley’s agent has admitted that he is in talks with Roma about a possible deal for the American.

Reports over the weekend saw Chievo confirm that the Giallorossi were one of a number of clubs in talks with them over a move for the versatile midfielder, in light of an impressive Serie A debut season in 2011-12.

The Mussi Volanti claimed that Inter and Juventus are also monitoring the player, something that his agent also suggested might be the case, presenting a choice that has Bradley blushing.

“Michael is excited by about the interest from Roma - it’s always nice to be a player associated with a club as renowned as that from the capital,” Alberto Faccini told Radio Calciomercato.

“But, it is an enthusiasm that he has for similar interest from other clubs who are following him.”

One club that he is rumoured to not have enthusiasm for is Fiorentina, but Faccini looked to put the record straight.

“Did he refuse La Viola? There was a chat with sporting director [Daniele] Prade, who expressed an interest in the player and when I spoke to Michael he was flattered. We have never rejected Fiorentina.

“Roma are very interested in the player, but ds Walter Sabatini and Chievo will have to agree something.

“Monaco? Bradley felt that he could not go and play in the French second division after a season as positive as the last one had just passed.”

“I cannot hide that I have already spoken with Coach Zdenek Zeman about him - Zeman appreciates the boy greatly. But, I had spoken to Sabatini about him before Zeman became Roma Coach.

“His best position on the pitch? Certainly he can be considered an ideal candidate for the midfield three, where he can play the role of internal right or central midfield.”
