Pau Lopez interview
Pau Lopez last night was officially announced as a new acquisition for Roma. Here are his first words as a Giallorossi player in Rome TV: “Rome in my career is an important step, a step forward. I think it was the ideal time to take this opportunity, I feel able and able to take on this responsibility to defend the door of Rome and I feel happy to be in a big and historic club like the one in Rome that has trusted me . When a club within Rome's reach shows its interest, it is almost impossible to say no. Betis was a very important stage in my personal career but I thought this was the right time, ideal for looking for this new challenge. Italian football is synonymous with passionate fans, football fans who live and breathe it, huge teams of great qualities. In the midst of these great teams there is Rome and I am very happy to live this experience. I try to have fun on the pitch and help the team by taking the coach's directions. I try to do what they ask me even in the most difficult moments and I try to keep my head cold by doing what they ask me to serve the team. In particular I have always looked carefully at the goalkeepers who were in front of me in the teams where I played. In the career a stage was that of Espanyol with Alvarez who was Argentine, then I shared the door with Tito, then Hugo Lloris, I always try to look and understand the porters I had in front and try to follow their footsteps. Ambition and courage are certainly the basis and are the concepts that the coach reiterated before training when he spoke to the team. They are two values that must never be lacking in training and in the game when this historical club is represented. Something that I can promise is that I will always give my best to this club, I am aware of the effort the club has made to get me here and I promise work, sacrifice and humility. We will see if we succeed in gathering the successes for which we will fight but I can guarantee on a personal level that the commitment will never be missed ".

Calciomercato, between arrivals and departures
In the last hours Rome seems to have started to work seriously to bring Toby Alderweireld to the capital during this transfer market session. As reported by calciomercato.com, the defender would have said yes to the Giallorossi: the agent of the Belgian would have spoken today with Petrachi communicating the will of the player to move to Rome given the offer received and his love for Italy. The gaillorosso ds would have proposed a 4-year contract for 3 million plus bonuses per season. Now the ball should pass to Baldini which tomorrow should meet with the leadership of Tottenham in London. The Giallorossi manager will have to try to convince the Spurs to free Alderweireld before an offer of about 7-8 million.
Rome through its official Twitter profile, announces that it has renewed the contract to Zan Celar until 2023 . The Slovenian striker, who arrived from Maribor in 2017, achieved 39 goals in the last Primavera championship, proving to be a real weapon for Alberto's team De Rossi . This season he was also able to savor the taste of Serie A, making his debut at the Stadio Olimpico in a 2-1 victory against Empoli under the guidance of Claudio Ranieri .
A few hours after the official renewal with Rome until 2023, the attacker's loan to Cittadella also becomes official. The Slovenian was sought after by most of the Serie B teams, now he will have the chance to finally show off among the professionals. The following is the note from the club announcing the deal: "L.A.S. Cittadella reports that it has acquired the sports services of Zan Celar. The young central point, born in 1999, played in the last season with the Roma Primavera shirt. The Slovenian, previously at Maribor, with the Giallorossi also made his Serie A debut in the last championship ”.
Gregoire Defrel will not be part of the Roma rose next year. After a season on loan at Sampdoria where he scored 11 goals, the Frenchman is once again on the market. Having set his sights on the former Sassuolo is Cagliari with Maran who sees the class of '91 as an ideal reinforcement for the rossoblu offensive department. As the journalist of La Gazzetta dello Sport Nicolò Schira reports on Twitter, the Sardinian club's offer for Defrel is currently 12 million, with Roma asking for at least 16 . In this distance, certainly not insurmountable, there is to be recorded the opening by the attacker against a transfer to Sardinia.
One of the hottest names in this market session is undoubtedly that of Jordan Veretout . The French midfielder is leaving Fiorentina and is courted by Rome Milan and Napoli . The Giallorossi need a midfielder and after the purchase of Diawara and the former Aston Villa is considered as one of the best profiles to reinforce the median. According to reports from Gianluca Di Marzio of Sky Sport, the Rossoneri club, however, does not give up his grip: tomorrow he would have fixed (for the morning) a new match with the viola to try to smooth the distance between demand and offer. The advantage remains, for the moment, the Rome, strong also of a better offer to the player. It would be naive, however, to exclude other possible twists. The footballer, meanwhile, continues to train under the guidance of Vincenzo Montella waiting for news about his future that has only one certainty: he will not be in Florence.
Ivan Marcano returns to Porto after only one season with the jersey of Roma . To announce the transfer of the central defender is the same Portuguese company on twitter. The 1987 class returns to wear the shirt of Dragoes already worn from 2014 until last year. With the Giallorossi Marcano has collected 13 appearances, for a total of 1056 minutes, scoring a goal: having arrived as an element of charisma and experience, he has never managed to break through in Eusebio Di Francesco much less in Claudio Ranieri . He leaves the capital outright and signs a four-year contract with the Portuguese club until 2023.
AS Roma announces that it has sold Ivan Marcano's sports performance rights on a permanent basis to Futebol Clube do Porto. The Spanish defender passes to the Portuguese club against a fixed fee of 3 million . Marcano, who arrived in Rome in the summer of 2018, played 13 games with the Giallorossi jersey making a goal. The Club wishes Ivan the best fortunes for the future.
These days a new name has sprung up for the Giallorossi midfield: it is Agustin Almendra of Boca Juniors. Rome is still looking for a player who may not regret the farewell of Daniele De Rossi. In addition to Veretout the Giallorossi are interested in the Argentine but they are not the only ones: also Porto and Seville follow the player. The Naples instead turned on Elmas . According to Nicolò Schira from La Gazzetta dello Sport, the price of the card is 20 million.
Gerson is ever closer to Flamengo : after rejecting Dinamo Mosca following agreements reached, the Roma midfielder seems to finally be decided on the next destination. Even according to the latest rumors of Romanews.eu the only option that would have been taken into consideration by the Giallorossi was that of Brazil. According to Sport Mediaset the agreement between the two clubs would be about 10 million immediate cash plus 10% on future resale. Gerson was purchased in 2016 by Walter Sabatini for about 18 million euros and had been torn from the competition of Barcelona .
"I have been waking up in the morning for 1 month hoping it is just a nightmare … I have been up in the morning for 1 month and I realize I live in a nightmare. I hoped that this day would arrive as late as possible but it was not so … the days have flown by and with them also my joy .. from today I will begin a new path of my life .. the CHEMOTHERAPY.

La Rome through his Twitter profile, he wrote a message of support to the former Giallorossi and his partner: "Some things are bigger than football. We send all our support and positive thoughts to Claudia, Radja and their family that is about to start this battle. Force Claudia, strength Radja ”.
Look who speaks
On the main radio frequencies of the capital we continue to talk inevitably of the transfer market, between arrivals and upcoming departures. Checco Oddo Casano told Centro Suono Sport: "To give up also Florenzi would be madness: I don't understand the shadow that is mounting in the city on this guy on what it depends. You may like it or not like it technically, but it is and remains one of the best exteriors in our league, one of the best in Europe, flexible, capable of scoring even more frequently ". These, instead, are the words of Stefano Agresti on Radio Radio Pomeriggio: “Alderweireld is an achievable goal for Rome, which is looking for two defender. One could be him and the other, however, Mancini for whom there has been a slowdown, but which does not seem decisive to me ".
