Will Stekelenburg leave Roma at the end of the season?

Posted on | April 19, 2013 | No Comments

Maarten Stekelenburg was close to leave Roma in January but everything failed after Roma decided to refuse the last minute offer.

Stekelenburg was not in the best terms with current Roma coach Zdenek Zeman and has lost his place in the team starting lineup. Fulham made a loan offer for the Netherlands goalkeeper and Roma accepted the offer initially but they failed to find a replacement and have changed their mind.

It looks like the clubs have kept the discussions open and Fulham made an offer of around €6 millions. Even if Zeman left Roma and Stekelenburg regained his place in the starting lineup he is decided to leave Roma. The main problem is the language barrier as he does not speak Italian and he is not feeling well in Serie A.

Roma have already started to look for a replacement and the Corinthians keeper Cassio Ramos is the favorite to replace him.

Fulham No.1 Mark Schwarzer will turn 41 in October and Fulham have made this transfer top priority for next season.
