‚ÄúThe answer is always the same,‚ÄĚ general manager Claudio Fenucci told Roma Channel.
‚ÄúThe club has made an offer, there is a request from the player and there are still a few differences to be whittled down. But there are no day to day new developments.
‚ÄúNeither we nor Daniele want to talk so often about these negotiations. We are pressured by the media who always want news, but we‚Äôd prefer to work quietly behind the scenes.‚ÄĚ
