The situation that lives Nikola Kalinic in the Rome It has taken a 180 degree turn, which means that its continuity in the Italian capital next season is no longer ruled out. The Croatian already pointed out ways before the break, scoring two goals against Cagliari in the last clash before soccer stopped in Italy.
And then, he has returned to a good level, with two goals in the five games he has played (the last one last Wednesday against SPAL). In the rest, he was a substitute. All in all, in Rome they are beginning to consider following the next course.
The sports director, Gianluca Petrachi, put a condition on Kalinic a few weeks ago. “Kalinic after January began to have good performances and also goals, but if in these two months that remain, he makes 7-8 goals, it is clear that his situation would change,” said the Romanista leader.
And although the Croatian is still far from those figures, the performance he is having makes Roma doubt. In any case, the last word will be the Atlético de Madrid, who once agreed a purchase option if the Italians wanted to keep the striker.
Paying does not enter the plans of Rome, which would contemplate a new assignment. The rojiblanco club wants to deposit money, but they assume that it is complicated, since the player is already 32 years old, and they could give their ‘OK’ to the operation to save their chip or, in the best case, receive a small compensation, since It will be the last year of the contract of Kalinic with the mattress entity.
