KRKIC MIGHT GO BACK
Former Barcelona striker Bojan Krkic could be set for a return to the Camp Nou in the summer after it was revealed that Italian club Roma are looking at the possibility of sending the striker back to his hometown club.
The Spaniard arrive at Roma for € 12 million, but it is thought that Barcelona had a clause in his contract whereby he can be purchased for € 17 million. However, if Barcelona were in for the striker in the summer of 2012-13, then the Spanish club could be just € 13 million for the striker. It is thought that Roma would be interested in such a kind of a deal because Bojan Krkic has failed to settle to life in Serie A.
Of course, it is possible for Roma to completely remove the clause in his contract by paying a total of € 28 million to Barcelona, but it is thought that they would be more than happy for Barcelona to take the player back home. Roma got Bojan Krkic in the hope of making him into one of the best players in the world particularly due to the presence of his youth team coach Luiz Enrique at the club. However, it has gone horribly wrong for both the player and the manager. There are expected to depart in the summer from the Stadio Olimpico, who are looking at the possibility of signing former Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas.
Bojan Krkic has been a disappointment in the Italian Serie A so far. In the 32 appearances he has managed for Roma, he has scored only six goals. In many ways, he is one of the reasons for Roma not to be challenging alongside Lazio and Napoli for the final Champions League spot. Roma currently in the seventh position with only one match remaining.
