Roma Rule Out Alisson, Cengiz Exits
Roma president James Pallotta has ruled out summer exits for Alisson (pictured) and Cengiz Under, linked to Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.
Brazilian shot-stopper Alisson has been linked to the Bernabeu in recent weeks as they aim to overhaul their goalkeeping department, while sporting director Monchi claimed Barca held an interest in Turkish international Cengiz.
“It’s frustrating for me because people believe Roma is a supermarket,” Pallotta said on radio channel Sirius XM.
“We do not want to sell players; these guys are on long-term contracts and we have no intention of them leaving the club.
“They have been incredible with us from day one and this season they have both been fantastic, they have big futures – just like Patrik Shick.
“Monchi faces the difficulty of financial fair play but we have identified a plan and strategy to continue to improve the team.”
