Saudi Arabia assaults Roma, offers to two players

Saudi Arabian clubs continue to be the absolute stars of the soccer market. According to rumors reported by, two Roma players, Roger Ibanez and Leonardo Spinazzola, are also in the Arabs’ sights.

The Brazilian defender has reportedly refused at the moment because he is waiting for an offer from Fulham, and does not want to lose the Seleçao in case of a move to the Middle East. Leonardo Spinazzola, on the other hand, has reportedly received an offer of 6.5 million euros per season and is currently rather cold about a move to Arabia.

Meanwhile, Fifa is running for cover after the proliferation of Arab offers for players from the Old Continent. The World Federation has banned Al-Nassr from signing new players because of bonus payments to Leicester City as part of a £14 million deal for Nigerian striker Ahmed Musa.

The club in any case would be ready to pay to proceed with unblocking the market. The Arab clubs, after Cristiano Ronaldo in January, have currently secured Mendy, Firmino, Kanté, Benzema, Brozovic, Ruben Neves, Milinkovic-Savic, and Koulibaly.
