D'Alessandro and Marquinho leave Roma

Roma have sold Marco D’Alessandro to Atalanta and loaned Marquinho to Al Ittihad.

The Giallorossi released a statement confirming the two player operations this afternoon.

Creative midfielder D’Alessandro was a product of their youth academy, but has been sold to Atalanta for €2m.

Now 23, D’Alessandro has been loaned to Bari, Livorno, Verona and Cesena.

Brazilian Marquinho spent this term on loan at Hellas Verona and will play for Al Ittihad.

The Saudi club will pay €1m for the privilege of keeping Marquinho until June 30 2015 with apparently no option to buy.
