Destro turns down Monaco?

Roma's deal to sell Mattia Destro to Monaco could have fallen through as the player turned down a Ligue 1 transfer.

The 24-year-old poacher will likely leave the Lupi before the end of the summer, but Italian media seem divided as to his destination.

In spite of previous reports from Sky Sport Italia linking Destro to Monaco with great insistence, Il Tempo is running the line that the deal fell through.

The publication reports that Roma had a deal with the French club, but the player turned down a move to Ligue 1 and compelled the club to look for another solution.
