UniCredit Tell Roma To Sell Adriano & Doni As Brazilian Exodus Continues

Posted by admin on Saturday, 15 January 2011

Adriano's Roma career will be signed off by UniCredit who want him out by the summer.
Roma have been told to lighten the wage bill burden with Adriano first in line facing the sharp end of cuts.

The club's creditors UniCredit, who are trying to sell the business, have told chiefs they need to slash the wage bill as the eventual buyers want finances to fall in line with UEFA's financial fair play rules set to come into force from next year.

Goal.com Italia reports UniCredit were trying to force Adriano into staying in Brazil during the winter break so he could find a team, but it was Roma president Rosella Sensi who opposed the move.

However, both Adriano and Alexander Doni now face the chop in the summer. The Brazilian goalkeeper had reached a deal with Malaga, but wanted mega wages as well as a regular payment to his father, reasons which saw the move fizzle out.

Meanwhile, Roma have an easier answer for Philippe Mexes who is expected to sign a four-year extension, but this also depends on the club's future in relation to new owners coming in within the next month.
