It's been reported by numerous Italian outlets this morning, but I can now confirm that Michael Bradley has arrived at Hospital Gemelli for his Roma medical. Once completed, he will ink a four-year deal, then fly off to Riscone di Brunico preseason camp.
And th-th-th-th-that's all, folks! Thanks for taking this long and winding ride with NSC for these last 14 months.
UPDATE: Bradley has passed his medical with flying colors. Roma are expected to officially announce the deal this evening, once the Italian stock market has closed for the day.
Oh, and for any converted new Roma fans out there, their right back search has now turned to a freebie, erstwhile Chelsea man José Bosingwa.
UPDATE UPDATE: As of 8 pm Rome time, I'm told some minor 'formality' is holding up the works. Bradley won't be off to the Riscone camp tonight, but maybe tomorrow. I'll sound the NSC alert and quickly have a full MLSS report when we finally put the bow on this thing.
