Sevilla sports chief Monchi expects to move to Roma at the end of the season.
Monchi admits negotiations are now at an advanced stage.
“It is not closed but it is what is closest. If everything goes by the normal channel and nothing is twisted I will be in Rome, but I never see it closed until everything I see is signed,” he told AS.
“Marcelo came on a plane to sign for Sevilla and got off in Madrid. That’s why I do not want the bells to fly until everything is tied up.”
