There Juventus raise your shot, there Rome raise the wall. In the middle it settles down Nicolò Zaniolo, who as a child would have dreamed of the black and white shirt but now would not want to give up the colors he wears. It is a fact that Juve has been interested in Zaniolo since last summer. And it is equally certain that the two companies will talk about useful exchanges to lighten the budget. But Rome does not intend to sacrifice its diadem, just as it will not renounce the golden twin Lorenzo Pellegrini if it is not bound by financial circumstances.

If important players, irreplaceable owners leave from Rome, it will only be for money. To have liquidity to reinvest. Bartering is allowed – moreover, recommended – for marginal transactions, which allow to produce “credible” and not purely accounting capital gains. The example is Spinazzola-Pellegrini from 2019. It is unthinkable that Zaniolo falls into this context.
