Marcano close to Roma

Roma are believed to be on the verge of agreeing a deal for Porto defender Ivan Marcano.

The 30-year-old is out of contract on June 30, and it appears he won’t be signing a new deal with the Dragões.

Now Gianluca Di Marzio’s website is reporting that the Giallorossi are very close to agreeing a deal with the Spaniard, who could officially sign in the coming days.

Marcano hasn’t been capped at senior level, but he did win a cap for Spain’s Under-21 side in 2009.

He’s spent the last four seasons in Portugal, winning this season’s Primeira Liga.
