Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa on verge of completing move to AS Roma

5 years ago

Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa is on the verge of completing a permanent move to AS Roma.

Moving on loan to Rome just before the summer transfer window closed, the French international has become Roma’s best and most consistent defender.

Mapou Yanga-MbiwaGetting his chance early due to injury, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa has kept his place and established himself in the heart of the defence.

In the process the on loan defender has played a total of seventeen times, including two as a sub, in all competitions, winning back his place in the French national squad in the process.

Now Sky Sport Italia have just revealed that there is a clause in Mapou’s loan agreement, which means that if the Frenchman plays twenty times during his loan spell then AS Roma are obliged to make the deal permanent with a £5.5m transfer fee.

A clear second just three points behind Juventus, Roma and Mapou restart after the winter break with a game at Udinese on January 6, meaning a permanent transfer looks sure to be activated in January unless AS Roma have a surprise change of heart.

No doubt Alan Pardew will be counting on this incoming money to help bring in desperately needed new players.
