AS Roma defender Juan is edging closer to being released from his contract.
A move to Internacional is the most likely option for Juan.
"The negotiations with Roma began a long time ago and for various reasons they have continued on for this long," reflected Michele Gerbino to gazzettagiallorossa.it.
"The reason really was only one, however, as it was necessary to reach a financial arrangement with the club.
"It had nothing to do with Zdenek Zeman, because they began five months ago when he was not at the club. Had they been concluded sooner then he would not have gone to Zeman's pre-season training.
"Juan is currently waiting. We've landed in Rome right now and we will soon depart for Brazil."
