The British side is now looking for a new sporting director. Rumors from the United Kingdom are stating that Monchi would be Arsenal’s first choice.
Roma want Monchi to stay and the Spaniard is happy in the Italian capital. Apparently, recent rumors don’t find much confirmation about the possibility of Monchi’s sudden departure from the eternal city.
The British side has made official the departure of Sven Mislintat. The sporting director of the Gunners must be replaced as soon as possible and Monchi would be Emery’s first choice.
The coach of the team of London knows the Roma executive very well having worked together at Sevilla for a long time. Their fruitful professional connection had brought many trophies to Spain. Emery would be interested in working with Monchi again.
As reported by the Italian outlet La Roma 24, in today’s press conference, the coach of Arsenal also spoke about the Roma sporting director.
“I know him very well and we have a good relationship. I can only tell you that he is a good person.”
But Roma do not want the Spaniard to go. Even Monchi had recently stated that he is completely focused on making Roma a great side in order to bring trophies to Italy.
“My project here is still very long. You can wrap-up the situation when you get to the end,” had said Monchi to La Gazzetta dello Sport. “Results don’t change my way of thinking. Moreover, they cannot compromise my enthusiasm at Roma.”
