January 30, Roma general manager Pinto talked about the transfer of Zaniolo,
He hopes to resolve the issue in the final 48 hours of the winter transfer window.
Zaniolo made a transfer request in the winter, but Zaniolo refused to join after Roma accepted an offer from Bournemouth.
Zaniolo only wants to go to Milan, but Milan’s offer is a loan conditional buyout related to Champions League qualification, and the buyout fee is 10 million to 15 million euros lower than Bournemouth’s offer.
Pinto said: “Zaniolo? I can answer this question. Now everyone knows what happened. Zaniolo applied to the club to leave the team. We and his agent tried our best to find a solution. This
A solution (Bournemouth) has arrived, but maybe Zaniolo is not too happy with it.”
Pinto continued: “We are in a difficult position because he has asked for a transfer and we are subject to a lot of financial fair play rules. We cannot sign him now when Zaniolo refuses to leave the team.
There are 48 hours left in the winter transfer window and we will see what happens, but it is indeed a difficult situation for the club and for everyone.”
The media asked whether Karlsdorp and Zaniolo, who have been included in the transfer list by Roma, can return to the team if the transfer fails in the winter.
Pinto replied: “We still have 48 hours. As a tradition, I will accept an interview with the media after the transfer period. That will be the right time to answer your question. As I have always said, the interest of the Roma club is high.
As for any individual, I hope everyone thinks so. I still hope we can find a solution.”
Earlier there were rumors that Roma coach Mourinho might return to the Premier League this summer, and Mourinho responded at yesterday’s pre-match press conference, “What does my future in Roma depend on? This question should be asked by journalists.
