Roma to send Kalinic back?

Roma could cut Nikola Kalinic’s loan spell short and return him to Atletico Madrid in January, claims Spanish paper Marca.

The forward turns 32 in January and probably won’t play again in 2019 due to a fracture at the top of the fibula, suffered last month.

He made only five appearances in a Giallorossi jersey, three in Serie A and two in the Europa League, for a grand total of 182 minutes of football.

According to Marca, Roma are getting ready to cut the season-long loan short and return Kalinic to Atletico Madrid.
