Roma haven’t given up on Marcos Leonardo and the Santos striker continues to press for a move to the Italian capital, details Gianluca Di Marzio.
The 20-year-old Brazilian striker, wanted by Lazio in recent months, has become the Giallorossi’s main target to strengthen their front line, and talks with Santos have been progressing in recent days. Reports on Saturday suggested that Roma had prepared a new offer for Marcos Leonardo a fixed price of 11 million euros with 7 million euros in extras, as well as a future resale clause of 10%. Santos has set a price of 15 million euros for the striker. Di Marzio explains how Marcos Leonardo’s agents will be contacting Santos to try and break the deadlock in talks with Roma, in the hope of moving things forward soon.
