According to Fabrizio Romano, a journalist of Sky Sport and transfer market expert, Roma changed his strategy to strengthen their defense line.
Walter Sabatini would be happy to satisfy Rudi Garcia by signing his favorite defender Marko Basa, however, Lille is very rigid in their economic demand and Roma are not happy to go ahead with this negotiation. At this stage, AS Roma’s sporting director is heavy on Rolando. Porto’s defender would like to return to Italy and often he was close to return to Inter, his previous club. However, Roma entered in the race for this experienced defender and Sabatini could close the deal soon.
