More on Marco Motta

Skysports.com understands that we are 'closing in on' Marco Motta.

And an article on MailOnline.co.uk claims that Motta said this yesterday:

'I want to thank everyone for the months I spent with the Giallorossi. See you soon,' he said.

This looks likely to happen.

So what do we know about Motta? Not much really. He's 23, he plays at right-back and has 31 caps for Italy U-21s. He started off at Atalanta and had spells at Udinese and Torino before joining Roma, where he hasn't really won a place in the side.

It's interesting regarding the team. We have two right backs already, although they have both been used out of position recently - Micah Richards at centre-back and the woefully out of form Pablo Zabaleta in central midfield. Motta provides another option but whether he's much better than Richards or Zabaleta we'll just have to wait and see.

I think Mancio see Micah as a centre back, and Micah himself said recently that he prefers this position.

motta is quick, strong tackle and a fairly decent player! He's on the edge of the italian side, but when roma changed manager, motta hasn't been selected enough, so, with hopes for the world cup, he wants football.

interesting signing. hopefully the nutter cassano will come too,
