Please do not become alarmed, but I'm here to inform you all that a second club has submitted an offer for Chievo midfielder Michael Bradley. I am still checking into who raised their auction paddle, but have a hunch it came from outside Italy - which would probably mean that team is set to be out of luck when Mikey heads to Roma anyway.
To wit, check out a comment made this morning by Chievo director Giovanni Sartori in Gazzetta Giallorossa:
"For us, it would have been better to sell him abroad, but the player wants to stay in Italy."
Hmmm, okay then. And what of the Roma negotiations, now with fly in the works?
"We're talking continuously. Let's be clear: if they want him, they’ll get him. Bradley wants only AS Roma and we’re working towards this."
Like I said, don't get alarmed; this is the transfer window, stuff happens. I'll stay on this and keep everybody posted. Just please buckle up, and keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times.
