Roma seek loan deal for Real Madrid's Cicinho

The Brazil international is now being made available by Real, which have already told Roma they must match Liverpool's £8 million bid to land the right-back.

However, Il Romanista says Roma are keen to setup a loan agreement with the view to a permanent deal and are ready to pay an initial £1.5 million to take Cicinho for the next 12 months.

Once Roma have settled terms with Real, they won't have problems agreeing a deal with Cicinho, who has already declared that the Giallorossi are his first-choice should he leave Madrid.
