Remember last week when we bemoaned the stagnant state of the transfer market? Yeah, you can probably forget about that now. Once Roma officially changed hands on August 17th, the deluge of transfer rumors (and actual transfers) that we expected never materialized. Where last summer we were at least tantalized by the prospect of Mauro Icardi and actual transfers of players like Amadou Diawara, Jordan Veretout and Gianluca Mancini, among others, this summer we've seen...well, not much.
But the tide seems to be turning, my friends. While much of the chatter surrounding the club has dealt with Chris Smalling and Patrik Schick, the scope has broadened over the past 48 hours, enveloping the likes of Edin Dzeko (to Juventus), Alessandro Florenzi (to Everton) and Nicolo Zaniolo (to Spurs).
But this one? This rumor is so random, so arbitrary, and so out of left field that even the Family Guy manatee writing staff couldn't have conjured up this rumor:
As you can see, La Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting that Roma left-back Aleksandar Kolarov is open to, and perhaps has already said yes to, a move to Inter Milan. Kolarov, 34-years-old, has been with Roma since the summer of 2017 and remains under contract through 2021.
