The famous players’ agent could finalize a few deals with the Giallorossi in the next transfer window.

No doubts that Mino Raiola holds the fate of several great stars and top talents. He knows how to discover great players redirecting them in the top European clubs. Roma already made a deal with him a few years ago when the former sporting director of the Giallorossi Walter Sabatini brought Kostas Manolas to the Italian capital. That deal represented a new era of relationship between Roma and Raiola, two parties that had not done business together for a long time during the Sensi era.

Nowadays, the situation is completely different. Raiola and Monchi are very close and willing to negotiate. The Spaniard is interested in a couple of Raiola’s players and reportedly the parties are talking to find agreements.

Roma is interested in the Dutch youngster Kluivert. The son of the former Milan star is an authentic talent ready to make a difference. He is currently playing with Ajax and his 2017-18 campaign was simply amazing. Raiola could move his player close to the Colosseum if the Lupi will be able to economically satisfy the Dutch side.
Kluivert would be willing to relocate to Italy. Especially after the recent Champions League semifinals, Roma is widely recognized as a top European club where players can grow and try to win.

The other name on Monchi’s agenda is Mario Balotelli. Although his bizarre character could represent an issue in a moody city like Rome, Eusebio Di Francesco is pushing his sporting director to find a deal with the prominent players’ agent.

“I’ve been following Balotelli for quite some time,” said the Italian coach at the TV show ‘Tiki Taka’ “We know what we are looking for. Mario definitely is an important player.”

Kluivert and Balotelli could, therefore, land in Rome soon. Reportedly, Mino Raiola should meet Monchi in the next few days to discuss these possible deals. Despite Kluivert’s price-tag is very high, Roma could finalize this deal luring the talented offensive winger. Balotelli, instead, could be pursued for € 10 million from Nice.
