Roma closing £6M deal for Real Madrid's Cicinho

Roma will wrap up the signing of Real Madrid fullback Cicinho today.

Real accepted Roma's £6 million offer for the Brazil international yesterday and final details of the agreement will be ironed out this morning.

Cicinho is joining Roma on a five-year contract worth £1.6 million-a-season and was flying into Rome last night with Daniele Prade, the Giallorossi's sporting director.

Negotiations had appeared to have broken down in the afternoon, only for Cicinho's insistence that he be granted a move to Roma convincing Real to reach an agreement over a fee for the right-back.
