Background: Nicolò Zaniolo had accepted the offer of Bournemouth and was ready to leave for England. On the evening of 30 January, the class of 1999 had decided to move to the English club, after being excluded from the Roma technical project. Then the operation was blocked by the Premier League club.
The transfer of Zaniolo to Bournemouth was smooth
After the reopening of the night, Nicolò Zaniolo was ready to leave for England and start his new adventure in the Premier League. The owner of Bournemouth, however, decided to block the operation also because of the many investments made on the market, including the arrival of Hamed Junior Traoré from Sassuolo
Meanwhile, in addition to Bournemouth, Leeds also tried for Nicolò Zaniolo. Roma, however, decided to refuse the offer. The English club – who also bought Weston McKennie from Juventus – tried to buy on loan the 1999 class.
Meanwhile, Nicolò Zaniolo has been excluded from the Roma technical project and disciplinary measures are expected in the coming days. The player returned to La Spezia.
