The former Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic has said that he is extremely delighted to continue with the Italian club Roma. It was very much anticipated that the former Barcelona youth team player will be making a return to his former club in the summer after not making a great impression with the Italian club Roma in his first full season away from the Camp Nou. Roma managed to capture Bojan Krkic for just € 12 million last season, although they would have to pay € 20 million more if they are to sign the player permanently after two seasons.

Krkic's chances at Barcelona crumbled when Cesc Fabregas signed for the club.

They have now decided to keep the player, this meaning that they are most likely to complete the deal for the Spaniard, who was once spoken of as the next big thing to come from the Catalan youth academy. However, he struggled for first-team opportunities in his first full season with Roma due to the presence of players like Fabio Borini. However, the departure of the former Chelsea striker to Liverpool for £ 12 million has freed up the first spot for Bojan Krkic. As a result, the Spaniard has said that he cannot wait for the new season to start and is very happy to stay at the Stadio Olimpico.

“There were some teams interested. But Bojan has expressed a desire to stay. It can be an important year for him. Were Inter looking at him? No, that was just rumours. He is ready at Roma – very strong and I think there are grounds to do well, both personally and for the team,” said a close source to the 20-year-old youngster. There were rumours during the end of the last season that Inter Milan were looking at the possibility of signing the player, but that speculation has now been ruled out.
