Roma outline market strategy

Roma have blocked Radja Nainggolan and Miralem Pjanic but may sell several of their youngsters.

President James Pallotta's visit to the capital allowed him to prepare the strategy for next season's transfer market together with Coach Luciano Spalletti.

According to the Corriere dello Sport, Pallotta established that key figures such as Nainggolan and Pjanic, alongside Mohamed Salah and Kostas Manolas, will be kept off the market.

The intention is not to sell these players, though the club may reconsider should a truly disproportionate offer be made.

Pallotta hopes to balance the books by selling the players currently on loan to other clubs, most notably Adem Ljajic at Inter, Seydou Doumbia at Newcastle United, and Juan Iturbe at Bournemouth.

Out of the current squad, Roma may sell Iago Falque and William Vainquer, with loan players such as Wojciech Szczesny and Lucas Digne probably returning to Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain.

Finally, he may also make some cash by selling some of the younger players, including the likes of Leandro Paredes, Federico Ricci, Daniele Verde, Matteo Politano, Arturo Calabresi and possibly Umar Sadiq.

Even Antonio Sanabria, picked up from Barcelona's youth team, is presented as an option that could be sold. The 20-year-old enjoys the interest of numerous teams, including Tottenham, Southampton, Sevilla and Real Madrid.
