Roma not giving up on Schick

Roma’s sporting director will reportedly try to convince Patrik Schick tomorrow, as Sampdoria rejected Juventus’ latest offer.

Speculation over the striker’s future has exploded tonight, with multiple reports that the Bianconeri have rekindled their interest after an aborted move earlier this summer.

The Czech Republic forward failed a medical with the Old Lady due to a heart issue, but that has now cleared up and the Serie A champions are keen to bring him to Turin.

It’s thought Schick only wants Juve, but Sky Italia is reporting tonight that a €30.5m bid has been rejected.

That’s the same figure previously agreed between the clubs, but there’s now a €38m offer from Roma and €37m from Inter on the table.

Sky therefore reports that Giallorossi sporting director Monchi will speak to Schick tomorrow to try and convince him to move to the capital.

The Lupi already have a deal with Sampdoria, so if Schick accepts the move he will join them before the end of the transfer window.

However, it’s possible that he’ll just hold firm and spend another year with Sampdoria, as there is a €25m release clause in his contract.

That can only be activated between June 15 and July 15, but Juve could simply wait until next summer and pay it then.
