Roma finalized a few acquisitions in January but Petrachi didn’t sign another pure striker. The sporting director did his best in a moment of transition.
In the past few days, we have finally seen the faces of some executives and lawyers of the The Friedkin Group. There’s an ongoing negotiation between the current Roma ownership and Dan Friedkin. Reportedly, the Californian businessman may complete the takeover of the Giallorossi at the end of February or at the beginning of March.
In the meantime, another transfer market window has opened and closed and many fans and some football experts believe Gianluca Petrachi should have strengthened the Lupi by purchasing a pure striker able to replace Edin Dzeko at times.
But in a moment of transition, nothing better could have been done. Roma’s sporting director Petrachi finalized three deals. Ibanez, Villar, and Perez joined the Giallorossi. They will give Fonseca more options on a weekly basis.
Roma have been experiencing an unbelievable amount of injuries since the beginning of the season. But with the possible imminent change of ownership, likely the executives of the Lupi could not go beyond a limited budget.
The Giallorossi are still in the race for the qualification to the next edition of the Champions League. If we think about everything that has happened since the beginning of the season, the current position of Fonseca’s team seems to be almost miraculous.
Now the team just has to think about Bologna. The next Serie A clash is very important especially after the disappointing defeat at the Mapei stadium against Sassuolo.
