ROME – Alderweireld . And then Mancini. Two central defenders for Fonseca: by now the plan of Rome seems clear. It seemed that Petrachi wanted to close the deal with Atalanta first, but the distance between the parties (about 4 million between supply and demand) led him to divert the priorities elsewhere: now the leadership's bow is oriented towards London, shore Tottenham to engage the Belgian international, who has the advantage of experience and tactical flexibility from his side, being able to also be deployed as right back.
Rome, the figures for Alderweireld
Alderweireld, which is expiring contract, had already expressed interest in the transfer to Rome for a couple of weeks. With the intermediaries who had contacted him it was clear: if you find the agreement with Tottenham, I am there. Yesterday Petrachi saw the agent, reinforcing the deal: for Alderweireld a four-year deal worth about 3 million is ready, which could push him to give up the 4 he would take from Tottenham next season. Now, however, Baldini former Spurs technical director, enters the scene: already today in London he could meet Daniel Levy, president of the club, to discuss the price of the card.
Alderweireld has a 30 million rescission clause which expires on 25 July. But Rome, thanks to the good offices of the councilor of Pallotta, expects to pay him a third: 10 million. The speech will not enter Zaniolo at least for the moment: either because the player, in case of farewell to Roma, prefers to go to Juventus, and because Tottenham will not make another big investment in the midfield (after Ndombele) if before it has not sold Eriksen.
