Ivan Marcano and Ante Coric arrival proves AS Roma to become supermarket again this summer
Ivan Marcano and Ante Coric’s early arrival proves AS Roma to become supermarket again this summer. It’s early days in 2018/19 summer transfers and Giallorossi already has started hunting. They have acquired the services of two good players for next season.
Monchi continues to surprise you but he knows his job better. AS Roma Sporting Director made Roma ‘Supermarket’ last season as the buying and selling never stopped at the Rome based club last summer. It was a new season for former Sevilla boss with his new team and the arrivals and departure were expected but the number of arrivals and departure surprise everyone.
Roma fans even started making jokes to call it more of a supermarket than a football club, but it seems AS Roma will continue to be a supermarket this summer as well.
Monchi was criticized last season for his transfer dealings but the result came handy for him to shut his critics’ mouth. They eliminated FC Barcelona to book their place in Champions League semi-final against Liverpool and they showed a fight against Reds as well. It was more than enough for Monchi to earn the trust of Roma fans, officials, club owners, and players.
A year later, it seems Monchi is once again ready with his list of incomings and outgoings. However, outgoings haven’t been released but incomings have already started knocking the door.
Ivan Marcano arrived without any transfer fee from FC Porto. The 31-year-old defender contract expires with Porto on June 30, and he’ll be free to walk away. Monchi sensed an opportunity and offered the player €2 million salary per season according to multiple sources in Italy.
Ante Coric arrival from Dinamo Zagreb was confirmed yesterday. It’s not a bad shopping for the ‘supermarket’ football club. Two arrivals in two days. It seems they are prepared for early hunting in this summer transfer window.
