'Unfortunately, he's staying' – ruthless Mourinho gives an update on Zaniolo’s transfer saga

The Special One didn’t hold back when he expressed his disappointment on Zaniolo’s transfer situation.

Nicolo Zaniolo

angered the Roma hierarchy even more today as he refused to meet with the representatives of AFC Bournemouth, who in

AS Roma

’s eyes presented the only acceptable bid. With Tottenham and AC Milan both seeking for a loan move for the midfielder, Roma are apparently furious that Zaniolo has turned down Bournemouth.

"Unfortunately, Zaniolo seems to be staying,"

said Mourinho

. "I say that because he told all of us that he doesn't want to play or train for Roma. After the game with Spezia I said I thought he would stay and now I say unfortunately it looks like that's the case. I can't tell you the details, but he is not available tomorrow. All that matters now is that we are focused on tomorrow's game with the players who want to do well for this club.”

Both the player and the club will wish to find a solution to the situation before the deadline day on Tuesday. Failure to do so will certainly have an impact on Roma’s season, with one of their best players being freezed out of training.
