New Roma coach Luis Enrique is going back to Barca in the hope of signing Krkic.

"He is a strong player and he could insert himself perfectly in certain types of play [at Roma]," Sabatini told Teleradiostereo.

"He would also bring great knowledge of the pitch. Would he start? Roma have strong players and I always had fear playing against them in the past."
