Contrary to recent interviews, Nicolo Zaniolo seems to want to leave AS Roma.
Transfer market expert Fabricio Romano said on his social media on the 7th (Korean time), “If all contracts and paperwork go as planned on Tuesday morning, Zaniolo will fly straight to Istanbul and join Galatasaray in the afternoon.” revealed
According to the contract mentioned by reporter Romano, Galatasaray will pay a transfer fee of up to 22 million euros (about 29.7 billion won) to Roma. In addition, the four-year contract is expected to include an annual salary of 3.5 million euros (approximately 4.7 billion won) and a buyout of 35 million euros (approximately 47.2 billion won).
Now 23, Zaniolo joined Roma from Inter Milan in 2018. Afterwards, he exploded his potential and played an active part as a main player. However, during the 2020-21 season, he suffered a major injury called an anterior cruciate ligament rupture and suffered a crisis in his career as a player. After being out of power for about 260 days, he fortunately succeeded in returning the following year.
Zaniolo played 28 Italian Serie A matches in Roma last season. It wasn’t his best form, but it was important that he came back. And before the start of this season, he was linked with Tottenham Hotspur. However, it is known that manager Jose Mourinho himself requested to stay. He has since played 13 league matches to date. 바카라사이트
However, the situation has changed radically in recent years. It has been argued that Roma may sell Zaniolo, who is not showing his pre-injury performance. Zaniolo also made plans to leave. In fact, during the January transfer window, he was connected to Tottenham, Bournemouth, and AC Milan. But there were no transfers.
Afterwards, Zaniolo signaled that he was determined to stay, saying, “There is a lot of fake news surrounding me. I am here to help Roma. I am ready to do my best for the club.” The transfer rumor seemed to be over, but Galatasaray started the recruitment.
And on the 6th, reporter Romano mentioned, “Galatasaray and Zaniolo have already reached an agreement on personal terms, as was disclosed two days ago. Zaniolo wants to transfer.” Now, if Galatasaray convinces Roma, the transfer will be done.
