Castan to get new Roma deal?

Beleaguered defender Leandro Castan is reportedly close to signing a new contract with Roma.

According to Gazzamercato, Roma will be able to sell Castan for a higher fee if he pens an improved deal until 2020.

The Brazilian’s contract is due to expire a year before but seemingly has no future at the Olimpico and struggled for form and fitness on loan at Torino last season.

Torino: Baselli in, Iturbe-Castan out

Torino will keep hold of Daniele Baselli for another year, but send Juan Manuel Iturbe and Leandro Castan back to Roma. “They were unconvincing.”

Director of sport Gianluca Petrachi spoke to ReteSport about some of the players on the transfer market this summer.

“There will be no negotiations with Roma or anyone else for Baselli, as we intend to keep him in Turin for at least another year,” said Petrachi.

“Iturbe and Castan will both return to the Capital, as they were unconvincing.”

Castan: 'Roma or Corinthians'

Roma defender Leandro Castan is getting ready for talks with Corinthians after his unsuccessful spell at Torino, confirmed his father.

The 30-year-old Brazilian’s career was put on hold when he was diagnosed with a cavernoma – a cluster of abnormal blood vessels in the brain – and required delicate surgery in September 2014.

He spent this season on loan at Torino, but was often injured or not picked by Coach Sinisa Mihajlovic.

“On June 6 I have a meeting with Roma,” his father told Yahoo Sports.

Torino ask Roma for Perotti

Diego Perotti could follow Adem Ljajic, Iago Falque, Juan Iturbe and Leandro Castan from Roma to Torino.

There is already a strong rapport between the two clubs and they have exchanged a number of players in recent years.

Roma still need to pay Genoa another €9m from his loan with option to buy deal, so Tuttosport suggest Toro could step in and take over that debt.

Castan: I thought I’d die

Torino defender Leandro Castan has shed light on his spell out of football, which saw the Brazilian “lose nearly 15kg” and “convinced” him that he would die.

Speaking to La Repubblica on Friday, Castan explained how his belief that he was “one of the five best defenders in Serie A” was cruelly replaced by a fear of death after he developed a cavernoma in his brain, prompting him to undergo surgery and spend the next two years recovering.

Torino to buy Castan

Torino intend to exercise their option to buy defender Leandro Castan from Roma in January.

The Brazilian missed most of the past two seasons with the Giallorossi due to a brain injury and the associated recovery, but has found a return to form with Torino.

Castan has played eight games in Serie A under Sinisa Mihajlovic this season, during which time the team have conceded just nine goals.

In the four games played without the centre-back, the Granata have let in seven goals, proving his worth to the side.
