According to multiple reports in Italy, Alessandro Florenzi won’t join Roma‘s pre-season in Portugal as the Giallorossi have decided to sell him.
Florenzi will return to Rome on Monday to undergo his medical examinations ahead of the beginning of the season.
The Italian full-back was part of the team that won the Euros, so he is still on holiday.
However, he won’t leave for Portugal upon his return to Trigoria as Roma have decided to sell him.
José Mourinho’s side are training in the Special One’s native country for the second part of the pre-season, but only Bryan Cristante will join the team, while Florenzi will remain in Rome.

According to La Gazzetta dello Sport, José Mourinho called Florenzi to explain the club’s decision.
Florenzi earns €3m-a-year until 2023 and the club believe he is too expensive as a replacement for Rick Karsdorp.
The 26-year-old will stay at Roma and the same is true of Bryan Reynolds who will be one more option at right-back in 2021-22.
Florenzi will train at Trigoria with the other Roma players on the market, waiting to reach an agreement to join a new club.
The product of Roma academy spent the last year and a half out on loan, first at Valencia and then at PSG.
