It will be a decisive week for Shomurodov, near Turin and for Karsdorp, exiting after the break caused by the lawyer’s statements. The grenade club continues to push for the Uzbek striker. In the coming days is scheduled a summit between the technical director Vagnati, the players’ agents and Tiago Pinto. Mourinho will give the green light to the sale of Shomurodov after evaluating Solbakken, who knows little despite having faced him last season as an opponent with the Bodo jersey. But Roma put a condition: Shomurodov can leave on loan, but only with a ransom obligation, while Torino is stuck to the simple right of redemption. However, the attacker has already given his approval to the transfer. In this season he was used very little: in all eight appearances, only one as a starter (against Sassuolo in November), for a total of 151 minutes and a goal, scored in Europa League against Ludogorets in September. The arrival of Solbakken could further reduce the possibility of use in the second half of the season. Purchased in summer 2021 for 17.5 million from Genoa, this year has found even less space. He’s got a $3 million gross engagement that makes his sale more complicated. Torino is aiming for a loan with redemption rights at the end of the season at figures lower than ten million. Less than half of what Roma paid him a year and a half ago.
The Giallorossi are interested in getting rid of two important engagements such as those of Shomurodov and Karsdorp, which together reach about five million. By lowering the mount Tiago Pinto could have the chance to please Mourinho, who would like another young central defender already in January. The coach has made the request since last season, but so far has not been satisfied. In defense they always play the same, even Kumbulla finds very little space. The Albanian is another who could leave, if an important offer and especially cash. The central defender’s speech is also linked to Smalling’s future, which has not yet given an answer to Roma. On Sunday in Milan Tiago Pinto said: «The will of both is to continue together». Roma is proposing to the English team the confirmation of the current engagement for a year, or a biennial with slightly lower figures. But the defender, even in Milan one of the best on the field, is tempted by a return to Premier.
In June Belotti could also move, whose renewal of the contract is linked to the achievement of twenty-one appearances, including minimum minutes, such as Sunday night against Milan. Arrived at zero parameter, in June could end up at Fiorentina, which needs a central tip of experience. Betis Sevilla have polled Matias Vina, another highly paid player (13 million in the summer of 2021) who plays very little. The Spanish club is about to give up Alex Moreno and to replace him one of the candidates is Uruguayan Roma. For him, too, Tiago Pinto, after spending a lot to buy it, asks to enter the ransom obligation.
