Roma-Bologna, Saba-Destro knot

Bologna are trying to sign Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini, and this could affect striker Mattia Destro directly.

The Giallorossi transfer guru is expected to leave his club at the end of the season, though it's unclear yet whether he would join another team or take a sabbatical year.

According to the Corriere di Bologna, the Felsinei owner Joey Saputo called Roma President James Pallotta and asked for Sabatini.

It's unknown whether Pallotta consented to the move, though it will certainly have an effect on striker Mattia Destro.

Destro moved from Roma to Bologna last year, and had yet another season of lights and shades.

According to Il Resto del Carlino, the striker's relationship with the Rossoblu is currently very tense. Following an injury in March, the club's medical staff rushed him back into play and aggravated his condition.

Destro, who subsequently had to undergo surgery, is furious at the way his injury was handled.

The club is attempting to rebuild the relationship, and signing the 25-year-old's former sporting director may go a long way in that direction.
