Schick leaning towards Roma

The Patrik Schick situation rolls on with new reports the Sampdoria striker is more inclined towards Roma, despite Juventus and Inter bids.

It has been a soap opera since Schick first agreed terms with Juve in June, then the move collapsed when he was diagnosed with a slight cardiac issue during his medical.

Over the last few days, the Giallorossi have worked out a deal with Samp, but the player had still been leaning towards Inter.

Over the last few days, the Giallorossi have worked out a deal with Samp, but the player had still been leaning towards Inter.

Juventus even re-emerged as an option last night, but Sky Sport Italia claim this morning that the Czech Republic international is finally close to a decision.

Schick is now almost convinced that he should join Roma, who are in the Champions League and would offer regular playing time in a trident attack.

Another meeting is expected today between Sampdoria directors, including President Massimo Ferrero, and Schick’s entourage.

Sportitalia claim Juventus informed Samp they will not raise their bid beyond the €30.5m that has already been turned down, so Schick could join Roma this weekend.
