BRIAN SCIARETTA - Monday, July 9, 2012
Michael Bradley's transfer from Chievo Verona to Roma remains close and should be completed early this week but YA has learned the details of the proposed deal.
Sources have told YA that the transfer is not complete because of another player to be included in the deal. Chievo want to loan out Roma midfielder Leandro Greco but if he refuses, Roma and Chievo will have to agree on another player.
The transfer fee is supposed to be between $3.2 and $3.5 million for the US international, with Roma retaining half the transfer rights to Adrian Stoian who will be loaned to Chievo for the upcoming season
Once the deal moves forward, Bradley will be playing for his sixth professional team. He began with the Metrostars in MLS before being transferred to Heerenveen in the Dutch Eredivisie. He then moved on to the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach and was later loaned to Aston Villa. Last year he headed to Serie A with Chievo Verona where he earned positive reviews for his play.
