Monchi: No Roma agreement

Outgoing Sevilla sporting director Monchi has confirmed he hasn’t yet agreed a deal with Roma and ‘it was a mistake to leak the news’.

The 48-year-old met with the Giallorossi in London last week before announcing he would be leaving his role at Estadio Sanchez Pizjuan at the end of the current campaign.

“When will I announce my move to Roma? When I have a deal with them,” Monchi told Cadena Cope’s El Partidazo show.

“Roma are there, but we haven’t closed a deal yet. It’s a club I like, I’ve met them in London. It’s an important club and it was a mistake to leak the news.

“Luciano Spalletti? I don’t know if he’ll continue.

“I have agreed not to move to another Spanish club, because I am a Sevillista and I care too much about the club.”
