Barcelona icon Luis Enrique on brink of taking Roma job

Luis Enrique is a step away from taking the AS Roma job.

The Spaniard formally resigned from his job with Barcelona B this week.

Corriere dello Sport says Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini met Luis Enrique’s representative in Milan yesterday to thrash out a deal.

Sabatini is understood to have offered the now former Barcelona B team tactician a 24-month agreement, with an option for 2013-14.

The former Barcelona, Real Madrid and Spanish international midfielder will net €1.5m a campaign should he accept.

His appointment could be made official by Monday.
