Roma want to appoint Sevilla’s Monchi as next sporting director

Tuttomercatoweb (Marco Conterio) After Sevilla’s match against Juventus, Monchi – the club’s sporting director – said that “it would be nice to work in Italy.” This suggestion, made by a man who has built the Andalusians into a team that has performed miracles in Europe, may not have come entirely out of the blue.


According to what we have been told at, Monchi would be the ideal candidate to succeed Walter Sabatini as sporting director at Roma.

Yesterday evening, he met Franco Baldini – advisor to the club’s president James Pallotta – in London as they watched Arsenal-PSG. He has also had the opportunity to meet the Giallorossi president in London on several occasions.

Monchi was close to leaving Sevilla last summer and it would be big news indeed if he were to take on the role of sporting director at Roma, a role currently occupied by Frederic Massara who would retain an important role in the capital club’s transfer activities.
