The Italian media continues to be quite confident that Roma will sign Rui Patricio from Wolverhampton Wanderers this summer.
This morning, a story from newspaper Corriere dello Sport claimed the Giallorossi are ‘getting closer’ on buying the goalkeeper for around €6m, with outlet Gazzetta Dello Sport confirming that the move is about to happen.
A few Portuguese outlets have been covering the information which comes from Italy, but there’s one newspaper which managed to get their own updates on the situation: O Jogo.
In today’s edition, they relay claims from Corriere dello Sport before adding the deal is actually not quite as close to happening as what is being said in the Italian media.
O Jogo have learned that the transfer depends on the sales that Roma will make this summer, so things will only advance once the Giallorossi get some deals done.
Still, they claim that the negotiations between the Italian side and Wolves are ‘advanced’, but it’s a matter of ‘making cash’ before signing the goalkeeper.
The Portuguese newspaper, however, doesn’t have any information on how much will Roma pay for Patrício.
