After the departure of Monchi, Roma sporting director role was given to Federic Massara with Federico Balzaretti on his side. But this solution could only be temporary as the Giallorossi will reflect on the future.
According to the Corriere dello Sport, “Roma management will valuate other profiles in the coming weeks, including that of Gianluca Petrachi (Torino sporting director). It will not be easy to take him away from Cairo who has a lot of confidence in his transfer market man but at least an attempt will be made. Another name that has been circulating is that of Piero Ausilio, who has not yet renewed contract with Inter. After the arrival of Marotta, the Inter sporting director is far from a certain stay in Milan and is appreciated greatly by Roma: one of Ausilio’s agent/attorney is very close to the Giallorossi.”
