Roma is ready to welcome a new defender who is coming from Porto. Monchi should complete the deal soon.
The Giallorossi are searching for the right players to strengthen the roster and compete against Juventus next year. In perfect Monchi style, a new and not well-known defender has been followed and secretly lured over the season.
Ivan Marcano is a Spanish defender currently playing with Porto. His contract is expiring in June and Monchi is, reportedly, finalizing this free deal in the next few days.
According to the Italian satellite channel ‘Sky Sport’, the agents of the player met with the Roma sporting director several times. When the Spaniard went to Portugal with Balzaretti, he had the possibility to go ahead with this negotiation as well.
According to the Italian outlet ‘gazzetta.it’, Roma made the following offer to the player: € 2 million per season plus add-ons, a contract for 3 years.
The club is confident in a positive ending of this deal but Monchi is waiting for the final decision from the player. In the current campaign, Ivan Marcano made 46 appearances scoring 7 goals.
