Luis Enrique confirms to Barcelona fans that Roma deal close

Luis Enrique is keen to wrap up talks with AS Roma.

The Spaniard has been in charge of Barcelona B for the past three years and has confirmed he's walking away this summer.

"I am in negotiations with Roma, but seeing as these are on-going, I will not say anything until the talks are concluded. I won't discuss the other alternatives," said Luis Enrique in a statement published on the Barcelona website.

He also confessed that the Coach who won the Champions League and Liga title this season had encouraged this move.

"I spoke to Guardiola about this and he said Roma are a serious club, so it would be a great option for me."
