Chievo have cooled reports that Michael Bradley is on the verge of completing a move to Roma, suggesting that negotiations between the clubs aren’t over.
Bradley’s arrival in the capital for a medical prompted his agent to hint that the expected transfer could be completed in time for the American to join Roma’s players in their training retreat, which started just today.
However, the Mussi Volanti’s sporting director Giovanni Sartori has suggested that this may not be possible, as Chievo have not yet agreed terms with the Giallorossi on his sale.
“I cannot deny that the player is having his medical examinations with the Giallorossi, but the deal is not yet concluded,” Sartori told pagineromaniste.com.
“We are still discussing the players to come to us in exchange. In addition to Leandro Greco, there is a range of Roma players that we like and are considering.
“Bradley cannot join Roma’s pre-season retreat. We must wait, we’ll see what happens today.”
