Agent: Menez chose Roma ahead of Chelsea, Barcelona

The agent of Jeremy Menez says Roma is the ideal place for the young French midfielder. Alain Miglaccio said: "Chelsea, AC Milan, Barcelona have asked for him, but the managers of these teams don't play young players. "He came to Roma because he knew he would play, maybe not always as a starter but, unlike what would happen at Chelsea or Barcelona, where players like Lionel Messi and Samuel Eto'o would have been in front of him. "On comparisons with Zinedine Zidane, let's let him grow, improve and work with Roma then, in a year, we can make comparisons."
