The Italian giants have confirmed one new arrival, one departure and their hope that they will keep one other player. Roma have confirmed that Mirko Vucinic has left the club, joining Juventus for £15m. The club has also confirmed that Dutch international goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg has joined the club and Claudio Fenucci has expressed his confidence that Daniele De Rossi will remain at the club.
Roma are said to be confident that Daniele De Rossi will sign a new deal at the club. De Rossi has been stalling over signing a new deal ever since the club bought by new owners. The Italian midfielder had said that he wanted to listen to the plans and ambitions of the new board and it appears they have satisfied him enough that he will pen a new deal.
"We have presented an offer to extend to De Rossi, and I think it is in the interest of the player and club to continue this relationship," Roma's Claudio Fenucci is quoted as saying by La Repubblica.
Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United have all been linked with the 28 year old this summer with all three English Premier League sides believing they could sign De Rossi on the cheap. Fenucci has also stated that De Rossi will not be sold this summer whatever the result of the contract talks. Daniele De Rossi is said to be very impressed with the acquisitions of Gabriel Heinze and Bojan and will pen a deal in the coming weeks.
The Italian club has also confirmed that Dutch international goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg will join the club this summer. The goalkeeper, who was a revelation during Holland's World Cup campaign, had been a target for Manchester United but the after Sir Alex Ferguson opted for David De Gea, Roma pounced on Stekelenburg.
Roma will pay Ajax £5.5 and the goalkeeper has signed a deal worth £2.5m a year until 2015. Stekelenburg has spent 9 years at Ajax, gaining 40 international caps.
Juventus have confirmed the signing of Roma striker Mirko Vucinic. The Montenegrin striker has been the subject of constant transfer speculation with Manchester United and Tottenham reported to be interested in the player. However, Roma have decided to sell the player to their Serie A rivals, in a move that has angered some Roma fans.
"I am excited and happy to be at Juve. Roma will always be in my heart, but that chapter is now closed. I am happy to join Juventus," Vucinic said to Juve's official club website.
"I can play as first or second striker, or on the wing. Whichever role, I'm happy to play in it. And if (coach Antonio) Conte finds me a fourth position, I'm at his disposal," he added.
Vucinic ends a five year spell in the Italian capital and many Juve fans have spoken of their delight the club have managed to sign such a prolific striker. It may go some way to appease the fans after the club missed out on Giuseppe Rossi.
