Since Tomorrow is Independence Day for our American readership, let's start the rumors in the land of America's former foe, England.
Roma set for English Meetings | Football Italia
The Sabatini Summer Tour 2013: First stop, London. While you're in London, be sure to check out our Brazilian fullbacks. We've got big ones, small ones, old ones and young ones.
Do you like flashy things? Do you like Portuguese things? We've got those too, all in a handy 2-in-1 bottle.
Are you bags kind of heavy, want to get rid something expensive? something Italian? We could arrange that too!
Roma Join Nani Race
I case you didn't pick up on it, part of that was referring to Nani. Roma are apparently in thick of it, competing with Napoli and Juventus for the rights to the Portuguese winger.
De Rossi’s Future Still Open
Also buried among my clever word play was the future of Daniele De Rossi. DDR reportedly met with Big Walt to discuss where and how he fits within Rudi Garcia's game plan. But with Chelsea sniffing around and with Sabatini shopping around London, the connections are a bit conspicuous.
Verona Keen on Taddei & Bradley
A little less impactful on the pitch, but just as prone to tugging our heart strings, it appears that fan favorites Rodrigo Taddei and Michael Bradley are in the crosshairs of newly promoted, Hellas Verona.
Genoa to Meet AS Roma Tomorrow Over Gilardino-Borriello Swap
This is still dragging on. Borriello is obviously makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up to a greater degree, but for the presumed role of backup/sensei, Gilardino fits the bill better.
Marco Amelia wants to come back to Roma one day. With all the hoopla surrounding our potential new midfielders and full backs, the keeper situation gets lost in the shuffle, but it seems imminently clear that there will be a new man between the sticks this season.
Abel Hernandez for €12m? Really?
See? More keeper talk
This is a new one. Sabatini has apparently turned his eye for U-21s to the crossroads of civilization, eyeing Turkish midfield prospect Salih Uçan.
Agent for Brozovic: "Roma welcome destination"
One more name to throw on the pile for now, 20 year old Croatian midfielder Marcelo Brozovic, currently employed by Dinamo Zagreb
