It seems that the Wojciech Szczesny to Roma saga is finally coming to an end, and it seems a deal to please both parties has been agreed.
Since the season ended and the Polish goalkeeper’s loan to the Serie A was close to running out, both the Rome-based club and Arsenal have been locked in talks about a renewed deal.
First it was the player’s wages that was holding everything up, with Roma not wanting to take a lot of them on, while Arsenal wanted them to take on a bigger share than they did last season.
Once that was agreed, it was the terms of the loan that brought everything to a standstill as the London side wanted Roma to pay a fee, which they didn’t first time around.
Gazzetta on Tuesday claim that even if the player is yet to join up with his teammates from last season, he will do so as soon as his deal is made official, which should be ‘a question of hours’.
This deal is a big win for Luciano Spalletti, claim the Italian newspaper, as the Roma manager pushed for it to happen after being impressed with Szczesny during the second half of the season.
We can all agree this deal is what’s best for all parties, right?
