Roma consider Sanchez Flores

Roma are under new ownership and a new candidate for the bench next season is Quique Sanchez Flores.

Late Friday night American businessman Thomas Di Benedetto signed the contract completing his €70m takeover of the club.

Vincenzo Montella is the Coach for the rest of this term, having replaced Claudio Ranieri, but a big tactician is sought for the new campaign.

Carlo Ancelotti is the main candidate, as his time at Chelsea may be coming to an end and he has never disguised his love for Roma, having played for the side.

However, newspapers in Italy have a new option: Spanish manager Sanchez Flores.

The 46-year-old is currently in charge of Atletico Madrid, where he won the Europa League and European Super Cup.
