Roma close in on Bojan
By ESPNsoccernet staff, June 18, 2011
Roma director of sport Walter Sabatini says Roma are confident of reaching an agreement to sign Bojan Krkic from Barcelona in the coming days.
Bojan, 20, made his breakthrough at Barca in the 2007-08 season, but he is set to leave the Camp Nou after falling down the pecking order.
Former Barca B coach Luis Enrique is now in charge at Roma and, with his agent suggesting the move would suit the striker, Sabatini has confirmed he hopes a deal can be completed in the imminent future.
"It's true and I confirm this is a very realistic hypothesis, even if it has not been perfected yet," Sabatini told Rete Sport.
"Bojan is a quality player, no doubt. We hope to complete the signing of Bojan in the next few days, but for now he's still a Barcelona player."
Reports suggest Bojan is likely to move for around €10 million, although Barca are apparently eager to include a buy-back option in the deal.
