Although ESPNFC reports that Pablo Daniel Osvaldo will soon be wearing a Fulham kit, it's beginning to look likely he will stay at Roma.
Unlike Borriello, he's been brought on tour in the US, and seems to be winning back the hearts of teammates and fans alike with performances in practice and with a goal against Aris Thessaloniki in Roma's last friendly.
In addition, after already receiving the backing of manager Rudi Garcia and captain Francesco Totti, as I mentioned in a previous article, he's now being backed by Roma Director Claudio Fenucci.
"We’ve decided to keep the attack from last year and we’ve reinforced other areas of the squad," said the director, as quoted by Forza Italian Football. "Osvaldo is a part of our squad and I personally think he’s one of the best strikers out there. He could remain at Roma."
In the same report, Fenucci did, however, ultimately note that, “If certain opportunities arise in the market then we will make decisions that will reinforce the squad.”
But, with Mattia Destro to be injured for the start of the season and with Borriello being left out, Osvaldo's chances of staying are increasing.
