Handanovic was the first choice, but the request of 30 million euros has interrupted the negotiation. Victor Valdes has explained in a recent press conference that he wants to respect his contract with Barcelona, but after that, in 2014, he wants to have a new experience. Roma could be an interesting alternative for him, that wants to experiment a new way of living. Valdes’ words have attracted the interests of Arsenal and Monaco, that are looking for an important goalkeeper to reinforce their defense. The problem for Roma is an economic question: compared to Arsenal and Monaco, Roma could offer less money to both Barcelona and the player.
