Roma have confirmed they are in talks with Manchester City over

a loan deal for David Pizarro.

The midfielder has been linked with a number of rival Italian

clubs, as well as Russian giants Zenit St Petersburg, but he now

looks set for a loan move to City.

Roma general director Franco Baldini confirmed: “For our

transfer market, I would say that there will be no surprises, we’re

just trying to close with City for (David) Pizarro.

“We are looking at a loan, we hope to reach an agreement by

tonight.”
