Roma run into Vina problems with Palmeiras

Roma have suddenly run into problems with Palmeiras for left-back Matias Viña, needing to renegotiate some terms of the transfer fee.

The deal was done, with director Tiago Pinto, his current Palmeiras teammates and more all confirming the move was imminent.

However, according to Sky Sport Italia transfer pundit Marco Juric, there are now some concerns that are stalling the switch.

It is believed to be a disagreement over the formula of the payment rather than the cost of the operation itself, so how many instalments are required to pay off the fee.

The cost remains €11m plus up to €2.5m in add-ons and bonuses.

Part of the issue is also that Nacional de Montevideo are owed 40 per cent of the fee, so circa €4.4m, as part of the agreement when they sold Viña.

Negotiations are continuing, but the transfer is slightly delayed and the Uruguay international isn’t expected in Rome until next week.

Viña has agreed personal terms with the Giallorossi, a four-year contract worth €1.5m per season.
