Calciomercato Roma, confirmations arrive on the latest rumors related to the Xhaka affair.
The Swiss name has been associated with the Giallorossi for almost two months. Already at the beginning of June there was talk of the strong and concrete interest of the Capitoline team for the midfielder of theArsenal.
The latter was in a not entirely idyllic situation with the club and immediately expressed great enthusiasm for the possibility of being coached by José Mourinho. The footballer’s yearning to move to Italy, as well as that of the Portuguese coach to coach him, suggested that there were all the conditions for a happy ending.
At the moment, however, it is far from a happy conclusion, above all due to the requests received from across the Channel, too divergent, according to Pinto, compared to those of the Iberian CEO and his colleagues.
The Roma does not want, in fact, to spend more than 15 million euros for a 29 year old while theArsenal intends to try to monetize as much as possible after the great performances of the Swiss in the five matches played at Euro2020.

The fans hope that the ending for Xhaka can be the same but, at the moment, everything suggests that the negotiation is close to the black smoke. In the morning of today, Friday 30 July, there have been several voices relating to the will of theArsenal from renew the contract to the midfielder.
The latter will expire in two years and has not yet pondered a decision. The desire to be coached by the former Tottenham in the capital remains but he knows he cannot wait forever.
In the last few hours, however, numerous rumors have thickened according to which the agreement for the renewal of the contract between the former Basel and the London club is very close. It goes without saying that a possible extension would force Roma to turn to another profile.
