Messaggero: Roma express openness to inclusion of Milan talent in Zaniolo deal

By Oliver Fisher -

Another report has emerged claiming that Roma are interested in AC Milan midfielder Tommaso Pobega amid the Nicolo Zaniolo speculation.

According to what was reported by today’s edition of Il Messaggero (via, there is a potential a turning point in the negotiations between Milan and Roma for Zaniolo because the Rossoneri have been made aware that they would accept Pobega in a deal as a counterpart.

Pobega is the third player who has been mentioned in the media as a potential trading chip in the talks over the Italian winger after Alexis Saelemaekers and Ante Rebic, who seemingly have not aroused much appetite from the Giallorossi.

Despite the fact that Pobega may surprisingly become a bargaining chip, Milan would still like to renew the contract of the 22-year-old midfielder and at the moment they believe he has a value of around €15m after a positive season out on loan at Torino.

  1. I’m glad this news arrived just an hour after another media outlet announced there were no contacts between Milan and Roma and that Zaniolo was in fact never a target and not a single inquiry about him was made.

      1. Honestly, none. They are all making up stories for clicks. You shouldn’t believe anything until it is officially announced by the club.

    1. 👏 Yes mate…. How on earth would Maldini buy an injury prone player for 60m….on top they want Pobega as part of the deal…. I hope it’s not true…

      1. In all honesty, i hope all this isnt true. Zaniolo , i fear wont give the long term solution we need regardless of his age, injuries is the shroud upon him. i’m guessing just like @shiva rightly said, stories for clicks. Shame Dybala chose inter over us( just me thinking out loud outside this conversation)
